Want the experience of driving an Aston Martin but determined not to leave your house to do it? You are in luck because the British automaker has launched its first racing simulator, the AMR-C01.
However, you have to be quick and dirty to grab what Aston calls “the ultimate luxury esports experience”.
The AMR-C01 racing simulator is limited to just 150 units and costs from £ 57,500 (approx. USD 73,000, AU $ 100,000) plus tax. It costs more than many real cars.
That particular simulator that Aston bills as an in-the-home product is out of reach for most people, but it̵
It was developed by Curv Racing Simulators, with Aston Martin adding its distinctive design which includes a carbon fiber monocoque, a seating position that matches that of the Aston Martin Valkyrie and of course the famous company logo on the nose.
And it would not be a product influenced by the automotive industry with a choice of styling, eight colors and three equipment variants to choose from.
In addition to the Aston Martin design, what does the considerable technical effort bring you?
Well, the main feature is the extremely wide, curved Samsung gaming monitor with QHD 32: 9 aspect ratio, which, according to Curv, has “the lowest possible latency and high refresh rate for smooth graphics” – we would certainly hope so. taking into account the price.
You also get a Formula 1 style racing bike with 9 knobs, 12 push buttons and a full color LCD display. It’s powered by an Intel i7 CPU and an Nvidia GTX 2080 GPU, has built-in speakers, and has its own Sennheiser headset if you need your butler’s advice on the line you just took through that final turn don’t want to hear.
Assetto Corsa is the pre-installed racing game on the AMR-C01, but the system is also compatible with other platforms such as iRacing and rFactor2 – we unfortunately cannot confirm that Crysis will run.
If you’re lucky enough to have £ 57,000 left in your bank account – and a playroom big enough to house it – the Aston Martin AMR-C01 racing simulator will ship in late 2020.
For the rest of us, we’re just going to googling the images and crying softly into our keyboard.
