May 3, 2007 - Project Gotham Racing developer Bizarre Creations has announced it's selling Granzilla - a car used by the company in a charity race called Scumball 3,000 - to raise money for the NSPCC.
Granzilla is actually a Ford Granada Ghia that's been given a fancy Bizarre Creations makeover. By 'fancy' we mean it's got a bunch of stickers on it. Granzilla came a respectable 10th out of 44 other racers in the Scumball rally, which is a four-day race across Europe for charity.
Scumball rules dictate that competing cars cost no more than £500, so the reliable but not-wholly-attractive 1988 Granada 2.9i Ghia Auto was the obvious choice for the Bizarre Creations team.
A post on the developer's official website explains: "The car itself is in average condition for its age, it has two cup holders, an engine and a steering wheel... what more could you want from a car?! It is also tricked out in some quality decals made especially for the Scumball rally, it is branded with Bizarre Creations company logos bullet hole effect stickers and some cool pumpkin emblems."
Granzilla is currently up for auction on eBay and, at the time of writing, is going for the cheap-as-chips price of £100. If you're interested in getting involved, take a look at the http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200106027301.
