The Red Bull RB18 simulator – made by the same process as the real cars – is available to be bought on F1 Authentics.
The RB18 saw 17 race wins last year from the 22 events run, allowing Red Bull to not just take the constructors’ title but also handed Max Verstappen his second drivers’ championship. They had a slow start but picked up well after weight loss.
With about four months since the end of the season, F1 Authentics is ready with a simulator model of Red Bull RB18. The Champions Edition is priced at RRP £99,999, while the Race Edition is available at RRP £74,999.
The Champions Edition will come with front wing assembly, as fans can opt for teither Verstappen or Sergio Perez’s themed liveries. The simulators are being prepped at Memento Exclusives’ HQ in Northamptonshire in the UK.
It is being manufactured using the same process as the real F1 cars are done. “We are delighted to have co-created a unique sim racing experience that puts drivers in the cockpit of the championship-winning RB18,” said Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner.
“Driving a Formula 1 car is something most of us can only dream of, but this simulator is as close as it gets to the real thing. Memento Exclusives have recreated the car to bring the track into your home.”
At the same time, Barry Gough, Founder and CEO of Memento Exclusives, added: “We are delighted to finally share news of this exciting partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing. It’s an honour to be producing these exceptional RB18 show car simulators that celebrate and represent their 2022 F1 championship-winning season.
“To be trusted to build and sell Oracle Red Bull Racing-branded simulators underlines our team’s credentials and the trust that the team has in us. This marks our first partnership with the team and what a brilliant way to do so.”
