West Coast Customs Rockstar GTA V Banshee

GRAND THEFT AUTO’S top supercar, the Bravado Banshee, has been recreated to celebrate the upcoming launch of GTA V.

Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar has teamed-up with West Coast Customs, best known for creating ‘tuned’ cars in TV show Pimp My Ride, to build a one-off Banshee in real life.

Grand Theft Auto Banshee

Grand Theft Auto has always been known for its homages to real cars, because no manufacturer wants to have its products in a game like GTA, and the fictional Banshee made by the fictional Bravado is no exception; aping not just the style of the Dodge Viper, but the driving characteristics as well. No prizes for guessing what the donor car was for this project!

State-of-the-art fabrication techniques were used in order to create molds for the body panels, ensuring a near perfect reconstruction of the on-screen counterpart. The interior was hand-made, including seat upholstery, dashboard and centre console layout and door inserts.

The Banshee has been a GTA supercar staple since the game franchise’s third installment, and will again feature in Grand Theft Auto V which is released on 17th September for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
