Not only does Red Bull give you wings, it also makes you feel like you’re Sebastian Vettel. How does the energy drink do that? With it’s new Playseat Red Bull-branded racing simulator.

In order to replicate the feel of a Formula One car, the Playseat is almost like driving Red Bull’s new RB7 – except, of course, you never leave the comfort of your own living room. The seat is in the same location relative to the pedals and steering wheel – just like in an F1 car, and it’s set up to plug into a variety of gaming systems.

If you have the extra cash lying around, you can pick up one of these bad boys for $1,300 (that’s the price when it’s on sale – you can also buy it at the regular price of $1,400). If you don’t, you’ll just have to live vicariously through Vettel.
