The new TL1 all-in-one racing, flight, and first-person-shooting motion simulator comes with some pretty neat hardware. This includes a spherical screen utilizing three projectors to deliver a whopping 5,760x1,200-pixel resolution, as well as a fully adjustable seating system that supports optional motion transducers.

Moreover, the Ariel Atom's auto DNA gets incorporated through a sleek 8-foot by 7.8-foot by 6.5-foot shell that houses all the components with steel and composite materials.

Produced by U.K.-based Motion Simulation in collaboration with Ariel Motor Company, the TL1 simulator is probably priced beyond most consumers with its steep tag that starts at around $18,560. In fact, in many countries, you can buy an actual car for less. The system is compatible with Windows 7 and XP, and if you're not deterred by the exorbitant price, you can get more details here. Check out the below video of the machine in action, and note how the lifelike visuals add to the overall realism and user experience.
