This Gran Turismo Sport Bundle Includes an Actual Mazda Miata

Buy a car and a TV, get all the rest for free

Yesterday, Sony announced a new bundle for its just-released racing game Gran Turismo Sport. Called the Super Bundle, it's only available in Taiwan, but for the gamers who can afford it, it sounds like an incredible deal. That's partly because it includes an actual Mazda Miata with a custom graphics package. Not a toy car or a model. A real-life Miata you can drive on actual roads.

In addition to the Miata, the Super Bundle includes a copy of the game, a PlayStation 4 Pro, a full PlayStation VR package, 12 months of PlayStation Plus, a 65-inch Bravia 4K OLED television, a Thrustmaster T-GT steering wheel and pedal package, and an APIGA AP1 gaming seat. So basically, you'll have everything you need to hone your driving skills, including a car to drive in the real world. Pretty awesome, right?

Of course, you also have to wonder what a package like this costs. And, well, it's a lot. $1,398,000 in New Taiwan dollars works out to about $46,297 at current exchange rates. But as long as you live in Taiwan and are interested in owning a new Miata, it's actually a remarkable deal. That's because if you were to buy a red Miata like the one included in the bundle, it would cost you at least NT$1,335,000. And that 65-inch Bravia TV? Sony sells the KD-65-A1 for NT$199,900.

So before you even get to the cost of the virtual reality setup, the wheel and pedals, and even the PS4, you've already blown way past the price of the bundle with only the TV and the car. All the rest of that stuff may as well be free.

That's not to say the bundle is cheap. Even with wages in Taiwan on the rise, it's still quite pricey. But considering what you get for the money, if you can afford it, it sounds like the Gran Turismo Sport Super Bundle is a fantastic deal.
