As one of the world’s most elite car brands, Aston Martin has made a tremendous effort to remain at the forefront of technology and performance within motorsport. And as the competition world has increasingly embraced the digital racing of Esports, the phenomenon has prompted the British marque to try its hand at a limited run of state-of-the-art racing simulators.

Known as the AMR-C01, the sim was penned by Aston Martin’s design team before being manufactured by UK-based technology outfit, Curv Racing Simulators—which is headed up by Aston Martin works driver and Le Mans winner, Darren Turner. Borrowing design language from AM’s supercars and a driving position inspired by the Valkyrie hypercar, the AMR-C01 features a carbon fiber monocoque that houses a super-thin racing seat, an F1-style steering wheel, and a full suite of foot and gearbox controls set in front of a curved wraparound display. The entire rig is also offered in numerous liveries, including the classic yellow and British racing green scheme. Limited to just 150 units in total, the Aston Martin AMR-C01 Racing Simulator starts at approximately $74,000, with deliveries slated to begin in Q4 of 2020.
