Grand Theft Auto 5's 2013 edition of the Bravado Banshee - a car first seen as the getaway car in the opening of GTA 3 - has been recreated in real life.

"Significant work went into creating this real world version of the 2013 model featured in Grand Theft Auto V," reads the Rockstar Games blog. "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."

The post explains that by referencing the model and textures of the in-game car, the interior was handcrafted and stitched to capture the look and feel of its cockpit, with seats upholstered and embroidered with the Banshee name and insignia.

The dashboard, door panels and centre console were reconfigured and finished with carbon inlays, and a multi-speaker premium sound system was also installed.

GTA 5 will be released September 17 for PS3 and Xbox One.
