Holy Grail Of Sim Rigs: The Nearly $75k Curv AMR-C01

Meet the racing simulator setup that employs a carbon-fiber monocoque.

Even the least expensive Aston Martin—the Vantage—starts at well over six figures. What's an Aston Martin fan not that flush to do? Well, there's always the used car market. Or perhaps the nearly $75,000 AMR-C01 racing simulator.

Aston worked with Curv Racing Simulators to build what it calls the "ultimate in luxury Esports experiences." Consider it the Aston Martin Valkyrie of simulators. It just so happens the seating position of the AMR-C01 mirrors that of the Valkyrie's, too.

As its high price suggests, Aston's racing simulator is a truly high-end product that's built around a race-car-like carbon-fiber monocoque. To ensure no one confuses it with any lesser product, the AMR-C01 incorporates a front-end design that mimics the grille of Aston Martin's cars.

With its massive screen, racing-style steering wheel, and thinly padded seat, the AMR-C01 is arguably the closest one can get to owning a new Aston Martin for less than $100,000. Sure, it won't get you from point A to point B in the real world, but it will give you the non-stop thrill of virtually driving one of Aston Martin's race cars on the track.

From the Editors of European Car: We still haven't quite yet picked our jaws up off the floor, at both the beauty and cost of this thing. Yes, right off the bat, we love it, but there are no specs, in particular screen size and gaming platform (or even if it's compatible with multiple platforms, which might be kinda cool), so we're pretty anxious to see those details next. What say you, Curv?

Have the coin to afford an AMR-C01 of your own? Then put your order in stat because Aston and Curv are only making 150 of these hand-assembled racing simulators.

From the Editors of SS: Well, well, well, what do we have here? Our Monday morning became a whole lot more interesting waking up to the announcement of a new V-8 Lexus IS, the IS 500 F Sport Performance – but do not call it an IS F. While it uses the same 2UR-GSE mill

As a color choice, we don’t generally see a lot of turquoise on tuner cars; it seems to be a hue favored more by bejeweled sun-loving grandmas with leathery skin rather than Japanese car fans. But the dazzling sheen on Jimmy Tu’s Chrome Turquoise 2015 Nissan GT-R is kind of mesmerizing and possibly the perfect

Cars like this 1996 Civic Type R EK9 are commonly found among the most desired by Honda fans old and young. Sure, it doesn’t carry the dramatic appeal of, say, the original NSX – a car that carries a legion of fans not only enamored with Hondas but car enthusiasts of all types – and

Super Street: It didn’t even make any sense back in 1999 when Honda announced that its S2000 was on its way to dealerships. Knee-deep in all things Honda during an era when the 5th gen. Civic, a monumental hit for Honda’s aftermarket hungry fans was just being followed up by the 6th generation Civic –

From the Editors at SS: It may be from the ‘80s, and never offered in America, and look a little goofy with its ride height hiked up the way it is, but all of that belies the sports car athlete that is the midengined, turbo four-banger, AWD RS200. Made so Ford could go rally racing
