Aston Martin has revealed its AMR-C01, a driving racing simulatorcreated by the brand and partners with British technology company Curv Racing Simulators. Which partly takes inspiration from the Valkyrie hypercar.
Aston Martin used carbon fiber to build a monocoque style structure for its sim the latest technology to ensure an immersive driving experience for the home user. The AMR-C01’s seating position is the same as that of the Valkyrie, to provide a hypercar experience with a number of trim options including contrast stitching and tan leather. The luxury racing simulator is hand-assembled by Curv Racing Simulators, using the highest quality components and latest Assetto Corsa software.
Mounted on the steering motor is a Formula 1 style wheel with full color LCD display, paddle shifting, nine different rotary dials and 12 push dials to give easy access to a wide variety of controls. Carbon fiber shift paddles, the pedal box can be controlled electronically, with eight inches of travel. Interested buyers can also choose from a wide variety of fit and finish, and can expect life-like racing experience courtesy the hardware and software in place.
The inspiration behind the AMR-C01 is, quite obviously, the rich heritage of Aston Martin cars.
“This was a challenge for the design team as, although the simulator isn’t a car, it is inspired by our racing cars,” explains Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer. “It needed to exude the same elegance, boasting the same dynamic lines and balance of proportions as any Aston Martin with a racing lineage.”
As you might expect, this all comes at something of a price. Each of the 150 units comes in at £57,500 before tax, or close to $74,000. For more information visit curvrs.com. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
