A one-off video driving game will offer the owner real-life racing.

Grid 2: Mono Edition is officially the world's most expensive commercially available video game according to Guinness World Records, setting the buyer back a whopping NZ$233,600.

The catch is that the Playstation 3 game comes complete with a BAC Mono sports car in complete Grid 2 livery and full racing gear.

The BAC Mono car is a British-manufactured, road-legal, ultra-high performance machine - capable of reaching 270kmh - which stars in the game. The real thing is created from high-strength carbon fibre and is said to be an unrivalled example of light-weight performance engineering with its 2.3 litre, 280 bhp four cylinder power plant propelling the driver from 0-100kmh in three seconds.

Just one of these packages is available for purchase and it includes a day at the BAC factory with a factory tour and time spent with technicians to customise the BAC Mono for size and specifications plus a Grid 2: Mono Edition branded Bell Racing helmet, race suit, boots and gloves all made to measure in BAC Mono and Grid 2 branding and a PlayStation 3.
