The Ultimate Racing Cockpit?

Gran Turismo 5: Prologue 8 August 20, 2008 by

There are some pretty impressive cockpits for driving simulators out there.  You can spend hundreds on a commercial option, or put in time for your own DIY project, but few compare to what Ahmed Al Azmi got his hands on last week.  Ahmed, winner of the GT5 Prologue Middle East Challenge, finally took delivery of his prize: an official “racing pod”.  The impressive structure, used by Sony all over the world to show off Gran Turismo 5 Prologue at shows and launch parties, is made of steel, glass, and a Recaro racing seat.  As if that wasn’t enough, Sony threw in a brand new 40” Bravia, PlayStation 3, and Logitech Driving Force GT.  Finally, Ahmed went the extra mile, modifying his pod further with a Logitech G25 and inverted pedals (hinged from above, just like a real car), making this one of the most unique, best looking, and well-built racing cockpit we’ve ever seen.

See Ahmed’s post for all the pictures!
