Only this simulator doesn’t go anywhere. It’s a glorified game. And yes, it’s as expensive as some exotic cars, clocking in at an astounding £90,000 (roughly $140,000). So what do you get for the same price as a slightly used 2006 Ferrarri F430 Spider?
This Formula 1 Full Size Racing Simulator houses a custom racing simulator, complete with three 23-inch screens, a 5.1 surround sound system, and a custom computer powered by an Intel Core i7 processor. The details continue with a full set of pedals, an F1-type quick-release steering wheel with force feedback, your choice of a silver, red, or black paint job, magnesium alloy wheels, and Pirelli F1 show tires.
Pirelli F1 tires… for a vehicle that doesn’t move? Three screens? Please… There is an art in separating people from their money, and this particular gimmick includes sending a team over to your house to install this thing and “make sure it fits”. This, sadly, is probably a selling point for some.
Oh… we should mention it’s being sold at Costco. Yeah…
