Priced At $120,000, The Red Bull RB18 Driving Simulator Is Inspired By The Actual Red Bull Show Car
by AutoExpert | 20 March, 2023
Memento Exclusives, a sports memorabilia specialist, has collaborated with Red Bull to create show car simulators based on the RB18 F1 car. These simulators are designed using the official Oracle Red Bull Racing CAD data and constructed using the same processes as the actual race cars. They feature the latest gaming hardware and are ready to use straight out of the box.
However, these simulators are quite expensive. The Race Edition costs approximately $90,000, while the more exclusive Champions Edition shown here, which includes a front wing assembly and the option to choose between Max Verstappen and Checo Perez liveries, will set you back $120,000.
The RB18 F1 car competed in the 2022 season and was instrumental in Red Bull winning 17 out of 22 races that season, helping Verstappen secure his second driver's title and the constructor's title with the assistance of Perez. Adrian Newey, a renowned engineer who also designed the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, created the RB18.
Christian Horner, who is the team principal for Red Bull, was happy to work with Memento Exclusives to make a unique sim racing experience that lets drivers sit in the cockpit of the championship-winning RB18. Horner also noted that driving a Formula 1 car is a dream for many people, and this simulator offers an experience that is as close to the real thing as possible.
The RB18 simulators have high-quality gaming hardware and a number of features that make the experience better for the user. This includes a curved AOC gaming screen, speakers, gaming pedals that can be adjusted, Z906 Ultimate THX Surround Sound, and a feedback paddle steering wheel with a quick release that looks like the real steering wheel of the RB18 F1 car. The simulators are expected to be delivered this month.
