If you’re a fan of Formula 1 or racing in general but rarely have the chance to hit the tracks, Aston Martin has now created the perfect solution for the more stylish automotive enthusiasts out there.

The first creation from a new partnership between the British automaker and premium racing simulator company Curv, the AMR-C01 is a luxury device providing extreme immersion whether you’re an Esports professional or casual gamer, offering a top-of-the-range steering wheel and the same seating position as the Aston Martin Valkyrie. More than that, it also looks as good as it performs. The entire construction boasts a carbon-fiber monocoque shell that imitates the automaker’s signature front grille while perfectly balancing sportiness with elegance.

“This was a challenge for the design team as, although the simulator isn’t a car, it is inspired by our racing cars,” said Aston Martin’s chief creative officer Marek Reichman. “It needed to exude the same elegance, boasting the same dynamic lines and balance of proportions as any Aston Martin with a racing lineage. I can picture the AMR-C01 in the most beautiful of residences as a sculptural work of art in its own right.”

Limited to just 150 units made, the Aston Martin AMR-C01 racing simulator is now going for £57,500 GBP, or roughly $73,577 USD. Head over to Curv’s website to learn more.
