On everyone’s bucket list should be what it’s like to get behind the wheel of an F1 race car. But since it’s probably out of most of our reaches, the F1 simulator from BRD Simulation might just be a worthy substitute.

The specs on this thing are mind-boggling. It sports a fiberglass and carbon composite monocoque chassis that simply looks stunning. There’s tons of carbon fiber throughout the simulator, including its suspension components, steering wheel, front and rear wings and Nomex F1 seat.

And clearly the complete turn key system will simulate the G’s of forces during acceleration, braking and turning through its sophisticated construction while drivers enjoy it all through 66-inches of TFT displays and 5.1 surround sound. And if the unit itself isn’t cool enough for you, you can grab some options which includes a smoke machine to emit puffs of smoke when your tires get locked up.

Delivery takes around 12 weeks and a one-day operational trainer can be sent to you if you cover their expenses. What’s the chances that this thing is affordable?
