This Red Bull racing sim costs as much as a supercar

Based on an actual show car, the Red Bull racing sim comes with a curved screen and speakers, adjustable pedals, and a replica steering wheel.

You’d have to be a pretty avid gamer this much money on a racing sim.

This simulator is made from an actual Red Bull show car, but still, they’re charging crazy money for it.

The Formula One team partnered with Memento Exclusives to offer the racing sim based on its successful RB18 F1 car.

That’s the exact car that competed in the 2022 season when Red Bull claimed 17 races out of 22.

It’s also the car that helped Max Verstappen claim his second driver’s title and, with the help of his team mate Sergio Perez, the constructor’s title, too.

This probably helps explain the price tag.

Ready? It’s $120,000.

To be fair, $120,000 might sound like a lot of money – and it is – but the Red Bull racing sim has been built using the same processes as the actual race car.

It uses official Oracle Red Bull Racing CAD data and comes ready to plug and play, as it uses the latest gaming hardware.

There are actually two simulators to choose from: the Race Edition, costing $90,000, and the Champions Edition.

Whichever you choose, they come with a curved AOC gaming screen and speakers, adjustable gaming pedals, and Z906 Ultimate THX Surround Sound.

They even come with a force feedback steering wheel – a replica of the real deal – with a quick release.

“We are delighted to have co-created a unique sim racing experience that puts drivers in the cockpit of the championship-winning RB18,” said Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner.

“Driving a Formula One car is something most of us can only dream of, but this simulator is as close as it gets to the real thing.”
