GRID 2’s expansive career mode will challenge players to be fast, be first and be famous as they enter a stunning new world of competitive motorsport. In career mode, players will experience aggressive wheel-to-wheel racing against advanced AI where each spectacular race unfolds with cinematic immersion. Building on the handling model from GRID, the new TrueFeel™ Handling System will use real physics to hit a sweet spot between accessibility and simulation and deliver handling that is approachable yet challenging to master.

The GRID 2: Mono Edition  is available for pre-order with a price tag of $190,000 (£125,000). This exclusive edition of the game is available for just one customer and includes the highly anticipated racing game GRID 2, a PS3 to play it on, a 170mph.

The BAC Mono is a British manufactured, road-legal, ultra-high performance supercar which stars in the game. Created from high-strength carbon fiber, the BAC Mono is an unrivalled example of light-weight performance engineering and its 2.3 liter, 280 bhp four cylinder power plant will propel its driver from 0-60 m.p.h. in just 2.8 seconds. 

At $190,000 (£125,000), the GRID 2: Mono Edition has set a new Guinness World Records title for the “Most Expensive Video Game Commercially Available – Special Edition” and will include a range of extras for the buyer to enjoy the ultimate experience of racing the car in-game and driving it in real life.
