Playseat’s New F1 Simulator Now Sports Red Bull Racing Livery

The market for racing game simulator seats is getting a little crowded, but Playseat has managed to create something relatively unique with their F1 model, which now comes in a special edition version featuring the Red Bull Racing team’s livery. As the name suggests, the F1 seat accurately reproduces the position that drivers use in Formula 1 cars, with the seat angled back and the pedals elevated. I’m not entirely sure if the setup warrants the $1,300+ (£819) price tag given it doesn’t include any of the necessary gaming hardware like a wheel or pedals, but if you’re hooked on driving the Red Bull X1 prototype in Gran Turismo 5, you’re doing yourself a great disservice by not ordering one of these.
