I tried Aston Martin’s $ 80,000 curved screen racing simulator

  • Check out the latest places in Aston Martin luxury while in New York City Housing development, Was given the opportunity to try Aston’s race simulator.
  • The AMR-C01 costs $ 80,000 with a 49-inch curved display and Aston Martin Valkyrie, This is different Valkyrie driving simulator C / D I tried it a few years ago.
  • Since then We first told you Aston’s expensive AMR-C01 simulator for 2020 has only 20 of the planned 150 sold, so we don’t have time to get it yet.

    To be honest, what were you doing at this point last year? If, like us, you left a real car parked and put thousands of miles on a pile of fictitious cars flowing from a huge flat screen, you were playing a game. Nonstop.More than half of the country Turned to video games And apparently everyone bought a new webcam and monitor. With the dismantling of production chains and home offices demanding electronic devices, the proliferation of games has socially accepted growing adults playing in the living room while yelling at other growing adults in the living room. It came to be able to.We have collected over 60 million Forza Horizon Built a garage of credits and 300 cars. It was a great time.

    It leads us to the ultimate Driving game A waste of time available today, a device like the Aston Martin AMR-C01, a $ 80,000 carbon fiber jet ski that parks inside the home of the wealthiest gamer in the world. Unlike the real Aston, the AMR-C01 is best sampled after a racquetball game, a cigar on the terrace, and some very old cognac bottles. It’s a party, and as every gamer knows, the best parties are always indoors.

    In a very dark room in a very expensive apartment in Lower Manhattan, I tried my hand with the Laguna Seca holding the steering wheel of the Vantage GT4 and the immersive AMR-One. Assetto Corsa..Not this ForzaSo, instead of collecting points to drive Aston into the stone wall, Assetto Punish you every time the tire touches dirt. It’s violent. When the GT4 cuts into the slide, release the yoke. A powerful rear-wheel drive vehicle snaps from left to right and then to the left again. Such tank slappers can be drilled exactly into the knee. Wow. You’re never supposed to whiten a race car, but you can’t afford a touch too light. Drilled metal brake pedals work in the same way. It won’t bite until you ponder the stroke deeply.

    Games like Assetto It’s not really interesting. Project car, iRacing, And other motorsport titles are training pads for real race car drivers who record hundreds of miles before arriving at Friday practice. Former Aston Martin factory driver Darren Turner, who races a private GT4 in the British GT Cup, helped fine-tune a digital car slicing with a corkscrew. But the sense of speed is more impressive than physics. The AMR-C01 uses a single 49-inch curved display, like a miniature IMAX movie. Rough A-pillars and windshields fill the perimeter. The in-car view wraps the dash around the physical steering wheel. I drove a shim to secure multiple displays to a metal cage. Hardcut slices the image across the panel. No good.

    Entering AMR-C01 is almost a painstaking exercise for living room toys. High carbon sill and rigid bucket seat (fixed angle same as future fixed angle) Valkyrie) Requires a limber frame and some filthy movements. The electric front-rear adjustment of the seat provides a perfect fit. They are on the console, next to the kill switch with the red cover. You have to wait for a break in the bathroom. And anyone over 6 feet 2 will stand up and watch. Tall people don’t fit well into real exotic or simulated cars.

    The idea for the Aston brand simulator began between Turner and Aston’s chief designer, Male Crykman. The chassis is offered in either Aston’s Racing Livery or Factory Paint, and the upholstery of the seats is offered in any color leather or micro suede. The Aston badge etched on the nose is another Valkyrie touch.

    “The idea was to make something beautiful,” says James Guess, who manages Base Performance Simulators, a UK company that helps create just 150 examples. It is sold under the name Curv Racing Simulators.

    AMR-C01 can run Windows-based racing games. It also has a wireless keyboard and trackpad that fits in a convenient slot on the chassis. Connect it to your surround sound stereo and you’ll never see the light of day.It’s not perfect Red Bull Racing Simulator We Driven Used by Aston Martin to develop Valkyrie, such rigs didn’t fit very well in luxury apartments.

    However, the hardware under Aston’s silky skin is not the best shelf. 120 Hz monitors operate at 2K resolutions rather than the best 4K and 8K gaming screens. The graphics card Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 far outperforms the 3080 and 3090 chipsets. The Intel processor is an old i7, not a very fast 10 core i9. Many racing games haven’t touched the limits of these super silicon wonders yet, but the AMR-C01 is quickly wrapped by a faster rig built by home gamers for a fraction of the price. .. We assume that the computer hardware won’t fit inside, as most of the space will accommodate the gamer’s legs and feet. But again, Aston Martin is always more than the latest technology.

    So far, only 20 Aston Sims have been shipped. Meanwhile, Guess is currently racing a real Aston with a second Turner in the championship. Sometimes the real thing has to be experienced outside.
