The AMR-C01: Aston Martin's first racing simulator
Somehow this is limited to 150 units
Aston Martin teamed up with Curv Racing Simulators and they have created the AMR-C01: Aston Martin's first racing simulator. The curve was designed by Aston Martin and engineered by Curv, hence it ended up getting a lightweight carbon fibre monocoque giving it a nice rigid structure and supercar feel.
But, when it comes to the seating position, the AMR-C01 mirrors not an Aston Martin supercar, but, its hypercar - the Valkyrie. "We modelled the driving position on the Aston Martin Valkyrie so users of AMR-C01 can get the full hypercar experience." says Darren Turner, three time Le Mans winner and Aston Martin works driver who helped develop the experience for the simulator.

The simulator's design resembles a single seat Aston Martin. This actually has the signature Aston Martin grille in the front, its own pair of Aston Martin wings and a racing steering wheel, which looks like it comes from a formula 1 car. Even though this simulator is all carbon fibre, this still has the same level of refinement and luxurious finish that Aston Martin customers expect.
The technology to run the simulation is no less as this one comes with the latest Assetto Corsa software that will take you to some of the most famous tracks at home. And don't worry that curved screen is included with simulator.

Aston martin will finish the simulator to your liking including liveries, seat finishes in alcantara and tan including AMR green stitch and steering wheel grips can even come in leather. Even though this simulator is all carbon fibre, this still has the same level of refinement and luxurious finish that Aston Martin customers expect. I wonder if someone gets this simulator in bare carbon fibre.
Unfortunately, There are two problems with this, one its price - base RRP of £57,500 plus tax, but, considering the work it is worth the money. The second is the number of these available: 150 examples worldwide.
