Formula One Racing Simulator - Full Size Formula One Racing Simulator For Sale - Road & Track

Attention, rich kids and wealthy man-children. Here's something that will make you the envy of the neighborhood. I don't think I've ever wanted another non-mobile four-wheeled vehicle this much.
This full-size Formula 1 car simulator is currently being offered by Costco UK. It's built by show car manufacturer FMCG International, who have experience with building lookalike F1 cars for events since 1986 – and boy, have racing games developed further from the days of Pole Position and Pit Stop. The F1 car is set up with three 23-inch TFT screens, and features an inbuilt gaming rig PC. I don't think setting up your own gaming console should be too difficult, either.
You get to choose the color of your simulator from silver, red or black, depending of your favorite team's livery. From the photos, you can see the finish of the composite body and the aerodynamics is absolutely top notch, and it looks as close to the real thing as a simulator chassis can be. And for 90,000 GBP or $140,000, it should well be. The tires on it are Pirelli F1™ travel/show slicks, and you can choose if you want Brembo or AP Racing brake calibers.
The amusing thing about the offer is the notice "Due to the nature of this product you cannot ‘Add to Basket’". The idea of clicking it and checking out, and waiting for them to ship your very own F1 simulator would just be the best thing I can imagine.
