Last week I got a chance to fulfil a racing lover’s dream and try out Ford’s Rally Simulator at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI. Featuring a triple displays, steering wheel and pedals, racing seat all set on a suspended platform.

The whole rig is rolled, tilted and rotated across all three axis’s creating an awesome driving experience. Check out the video below showing off the tech. If only this thing could fit through the front door it’d have prime position in the lounge room.

A couple of things that were missing was a manual transmission option with shifter and handbrake for those tight turns.

 

techAU attended the North American International Auto Show as a guest of Ford Motor Company, covering flights and accommodation. My opinions posted here are my own.
