Formula 1 fans can now indulge in a pretty special racing experience, as world champions Red Bull Racing are producing limited-edition Red Bull RB18 show car simulators, but at an incredible cost of $185,980.

    The collaboration will enable enthusiasts to own what will likely become a special piece of Formula 1 history, with the simulators boasting a striking livery and exceptional attention to detail.

    According to the Formula 1 website, the Red Bull RB18 show car simulators are equipped with the latest technology to give users an authentic and immersive F1 driving experience. The simulators are built around a genuine Red Bull Racing Formula 1 chassis and adorned with the team’s official livery.

    The body of the RB18 show car simulator features a full-size F1 car with an exact replica of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez’s 2022 race seats.

    In addition to the sleek design, the simulators incorporate a state-of-the-art motion system, which replicates the forces experienced by F1 drivers during real-world races. The hydraulic motion platform moves in sync with the on-screen action, delivering a fully immersive experience.

    According to the F1 website, the package includes an OCUK Bespoke PC, AOC AGON AG493UC monitors and a “Z906 Ultimate THX Surround Sound” system.

    The driving experience is further enhanced by the integration of steering wheels and pedal systems which mirror the actual components used in Red Bull Racing cars. The simulators offer customisable settings, enabling users to adjust the level of realism and difficulty to suit their preferences and skills.

    A unique feature of the Red Bull RB18 show car simulators is the incorporation of real-world F1 telemetry data, allowing users to compare their performance against real drivers. This data provides an opportunity for individuals to learn from the best and improve their skills, making the simulators ideal for both casual enthusiasts and professional racers.

    The limited edition simulators are set to go on sale via the official Formula 1 memorabilia store next month.
