It looks like a Chinese earthquake bed with a car seat thrown in. We’re pretty sure people who get a first look of this, not knowing its purpose, will wonder what it is. It’s actually a fine example of Scandinavian workmanship, a wooden racing simulator.
It’s not all wood, just the exterior, and yes it does bare a chilling resemblance to a coffin. The VRS-P1 Prosumer simulator is more than that, however. It’s an honest to goodness visceral racing experience that can accommodate a fiber glass seat plus all the hardware and accoutrements needed for your racing game fix.
True to the artistry of Swedish woodwork, the VRS-P1 is available in several different exteriors, including oak and walnut. The problem here is the simulator doesn’t include the gaming console and the steering wheel needed for zipping across a race track. It’s expected that whoever purchases a VRS-P1 has enough spare dough left for the peripherals or at at least owns them already.
The VRS-P1 is such an elegant piece of work, buying one will set you back $4,000. Ouch!
