Ferrari’s F1 Driving Simulator

by Upscale Swagger on December 28, 2009

After two-years in the making, Ferrari has built a driving simulator that is possibly the most advanced to date. The driving simulator stands 18-feet high and takes up two stories. The base weighs a heavy 200 hundred tons and on top of that are a platform of actuators that support the aluminum and composite driving structure.

The simulator is powered by ten microprocessors, 60GB of RAM, and produces 5GB of data per day. The driver will view the virtual track on five displays providing 180 degrees of viewing and will be able to get the full audio experience through a 3,500-watt Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound system.

Unfortunately, the Ferrari F1 simulator will only be available to Ferrari Formula 1 drivers and will not be available to the public any time soon.

I was kind a hoping they will open it for the public on specific events or something… it would have been too cool!
