Update

Rockstar has posted more information about the creation of the car:
Ever since its debut as the getaway car in the opening moments of Grand Theft Auto III, the Bravado Banshee has been a symbol of the ultimate American sports car. With its aggressive, oversized styling and powerful engine, it became a mainstay as one of the most sought after high-performance rides from coast to coast - from Liberty City all the way to Los Santos...

Significant work went into creating this real world version of the 2013 model featured in Grand Theft Auto V. Utilizing state-of-the-art fabrication technologies, molds for the exterior were cut and machined piece-by-piece for the high performance base vehicle. With these molds each panel was laid out by hand to create an entirely new exterior resulting in a screen accurate reproduction of the Banshee.

Referencing the model and textures of the in-game car, the interior was handcrafted and stitched to capture the look and feel of its detailed cockpit, with seats upholstered and embroidered with the Banshee name and insignia. The dashboard, door panels and center console were reconfigured and finished with carbon inlays. And finally, a multi-speaker premium sound system was installed before giving it the iconic metallic blue exterior complete with ice white racing stripe.

The result is a one-of-kind supercar worthy of representing the Banshee's heritage and a tribute to some of the deep customization options you'll find in the Los Santos Customs shops of GTA V, where you can equip and style your vehicles with a wide range of visual and performance-based enhancements.

More images were also posted but we'll cut to the unseen interior pics:

    @TreeFitty Really? That's sweet! I can't figure out how to mail in on GameStop's site. So basically I just need to mail something to their TX address? If so, what would I mail?

    Unlike the US in the UK we don't tax people on buying a car or selling a car. you would have to pay import tax which wouldn't be much. But lets face it... it looks nice but if you drive it anywhere other than the US you would look a dick.. lol plus fuel in the rest of the world would cost a pretty penny! lol

    Added additional info and interior pics above.

    @photodotexe : It's not only GameStop members. You can also mail in an entry. That's how they get away with the "no purchase necessary" requirement.

    In the full rules the car itself is only $180,000 (estimated) and there's an extra $70,000 check which more than likely covers taxes by the US - another hint at the reasoning for US-only. 70k / 250k = 0.28 or 28% which is the maximum tax rate for prize income by the IRS. So the math works out pretty well. :P

    shipping, on a vehicle costs no more than 2000$ , i know this as i have experience with vehicles shipped from japan to the Caribbean area and also from the US to the Caribbean area. price range is usually between 1500-2000$. what's that compared to a vehicle that is worth around 250000$? so you are correct in thinking it likely is not about the shipping
