Remember the Bravado Banshee that West Coast Customs built last year to promote Grand Theft Auto V? Given away by GameStop, the woman who won it says she's better off with money to send her two kids to college than with a race car, so now you can steal buy it on eBay.

Based on a 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10, every exterior panel was redesigned to match the Banshee, and the red embroidered badging inside won't let you forget it. There's still that V10 up front that can make some kind of racket, and a SEMA-worthy stereo filling the entire trunk to make a different kind of racket. Oh, it's also got hood struts that have crapped out, so you'll notice the hood is held up with a wooden rod.

The auction ends on June 5, and you can make an offer or hit the Buy It Now button and hand over $170,000. Might be time to change the outfit and run a few jobs for some quick cash.

      Worth maybe $40k tops. Anyone who would even list it for $170k must be on crack. Which I suppose is appropriate, given the car's history.

      If you are going to sell the car for $170k, at least fix that headlight.

      She is $30,000 over a brand new ones that dealers can't even get rid of, I think she needs to go to college and take a course in economics.

        Also on the title renewal in 2/14 the odometer shows 9323 miles, but she has it lived with 7500.

        Oh I just noticed this on the eBay site, the car has a loan/lien on it, nice little plus plus there.

      Is it just me, or does the hole that the head unit sits in look like it was cut out by a 5-th grader with scissors? I'd rather have a stock Viper

        And if you're going to put a one-off car for sale on EBay, and ask $170,000 for it....clean the damn thing first. Little Maguire's Interior Mist and a pack of MicroFiber Towels would do wonders. I could have that car looking 10 times better by spending about $20 bucks at Wal-Mart and 3 hours in the driveway. Sheesh.

          While you're at it, spend the $25 and replace the friggin hood struts. How much care did they put into the rest of the car if they didn't think it was a problem that I need a piece of wood to hold up the damn hood??? If they sell this for $170K, I would love to see the person who actually bought it.

      No way. For $50k it's worth a look. However, the fact that he didn't spend $30 on new hood struts makes me suspicious of the condition of the rest of the car. Go home Banshee, you're drunk.

      $170,000 bahahaha....... sorry but I don't know many 12 year olds with 170k, and anyone with 170k probably doesn't want a hacked together video game car. Anyone looking at buying this dirty (interior), broken (hood struts, headlight), hack job car do yourself a favor and go buy a new Viper.

      idk how West Coast Customs is still around. The quality of their builds are so bad you'd think a teenager did it in their garage. The whole thing just looks like its gonna fall apart any second.

      Why would I want a Viper but put on generic front and rear ends? The Banshee needs to stay where it belongs--in fiction.

      Maybe I am wrong, but every time I see West Coast Customs "customize" anything, it just looks like they slapped it together and it will all fall apart within 5 years. This is no exception. And I am more of a Mammoth Patriot fan myself.

        You know a nice WCC episode would be the ever popular where are they now. I know Overhaulin' did one and all their cars were in very nice condition, of course they have real talent.

        I own a Westcoast Customs built car and my best friend owns several and they build junk . Their cars look good but they fall apart a month or two after they are driven off their lot . Did you know Westcoast Customs has gone chapter 11 before and has tons of customer complaints and lawsuits currently pending against them ,

      As a fan of the first and second generation Dodge Viper, and die-hard fan of the entire GTA series; I've never wanted anything so badly in my life.

        Honestly, I like this better than the Viper. I think it's a cleaner design IMO.

      Front wheels arches are not even aligned. Rear end with a poor amateur job recreating the current Viper tailights. Looks like a bad garage project.

        Those tail lights are actually based off of the GTA version of the Banshee. Might want to look that up.
