F1 12

I’ve seen some pretty impressive gaming rig simulators. From full on cockpits for Wing Commander through to mounted motorcycles for some MotoGP. Those rigs are expensive though. Which is why I advise covering your monitor in plastic before sitting down to drink some tea, to find out how much this rig will cost you.

Currently being sold by Costco UK according to Autoblog via Joystiq, the FMCG International F1 racing simulator will set you back a cool £89,999.89. That’s around $138,000 in Washington cash, or R1.28 million. And 68 cents.

Still, at least you won’t have to further break your bank when it comes to buying a real F1 car, which costs in the region of millions just to shave one tenth of a second off. So what do you get for your hard-earned Randelas?

For starters, a body kit done up in your favourite colour (Blue! No yellooooooooooow!), that is made from various materials such as that trendy carbon fibre and other rare stuff, actual wheels and chromed exhausts. As for the gaming section, that’s an Intel Core i7 rig that comes equipped with 16 gigs of RAM and a random graphics card and SSD right now. Oh, and a three monitors that measure in at 23 inches wide each. AND a 5.1 audio surround sound system.

It’s expensive as hell, will be outdated within a few years and sweet mother of Pearl, I want one!

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    I’m trying to work out if the rear view mirrors are screens that actually show what’s behind you in-game or are they just normal mirrors (which to be honest would confuse the s**t out of me if I was playing and kept looking at them to see what was behind me)

    For that price they better be fancy small monitors

      Do you still sleep in it?

      • Trevor Davies

        Apparently I make vroom-vroom noises in my sleep.

    As much as I love gaming, If I had that much money to waste I’d be knee deep in dead hookers & coke

    Shall I call the BanHammer on the first three commentors?

    • Spathi

      Surely, If you feel the need?

      • DBL_ZA

        Why would I rat out my fellow commenters?

        • Spathi

          Because rules are rules, and if you make one exception, where will it stop?

  • AndriyP

    Feck might aswel get a F1 car that actually drives for that money

  • DrKiller

    I think that extra 68 cents is making everyone negative

  • Johan du Preez

    If the engine is still in it then it might make sense :)
