This Aston Martin Driving Simulator Will Cost You $74,000
Aston Martin has revealed AMR-C01, a high-end driving simulator with a hefty price.
1. Aston Martin has unveiled its first brand-own driving simulator that was developed with Curv.
2. It will dig a $74,000 hole in your pocket.
3. Racing in e-motorsports events and against rivals is also possible.
Aston Martin has unveiled its driving simulator named AMR-CO1, which was built in collaboration with high-end racing simulator maker Curv. It will allow those in the driver's seat to experience million dollar Aston Martins, among other car manufacturers high-priced hyper/supercars. While it may still be a step down from a real Aston Martin, in price at least, it will still cost you $74,000.
Wait...You Can Only Drive Aston Martin's?
No! That would be even more of a waste of money! Any vehicle that is included with the Assetto Corsa V-racing platform will be available because the AMR-CO1 utilizes hardware instead of software. For example, despite the price tag, cars like the Abarth 595 SS, which only has 145 horsepower, will be available to drive.
What Do You Get For Your Money?
This unified setup includes a racing seat, pedals, a steering wheel, and even a monitor, all of which assist the driver to feel as though they are indeed in the racing setting. Its driving position is set similar to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, with the pedals positioned high and facing the steering wheel.
The AMR-CO1 is designed, as the press release puts it, to be "a stylish addition to any luxury games room," and is built around a beautiful carbon-fiber tub with a front that has been "shaped to invoke the signature Aston Martin racing grille."
Its $74,000 price tag does mean it costs about the same as a REAL high-trim level C8 Corvette or Jaguar XF, but allows you to crash cars that cost 10 times as much without any consequences.
It's $74,000 - not a practical buy. Buying the AMR-CO1 is essentially getting you a top-of-the-line racing simulator, whilst making you pay for the Aston Martin brand logo and paraphernalia. If this setup was manufactured by any regular sim racing brand, it would probably be in the $50,000-$60,000 range.
This new AMR-CO1 driving simulator has a hefty price, but is a very well set up simulator. Allowing you to race in e-motorsport events, take-down rivals, and drive an abundance of different cars, the AMR-CO1 high-end driving simulator has everything an aspiring racer might want.
