Lockdown addictions

Racing days, at home

The Car&vintage cave keeps a couple of special objects. Two furniture elements very different, both chosen in order to satisfy an insane motorsport addiction, and both carrying completely opposite functions.

AK Informatica racing sim has been the best ever winter days/nights spare time companion, as well as a very nice way to virtually meet Car&vintage’s most skilled driving friends — specially during lockdowns.

The kit, provided and carefully assembled by AK Informatica, features:

  • Fanatec ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5
  • Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel V2.5
  • Fanatec ClubSport Pedals V3
  • Sparco SIM Rig II with Sparco QRT-R racing seat
  • Samsung HDR/4K Ultrawide (32:9) Pro Gaming 49”
  • AK Rig Sim Racing Top PC tower

Right in front of the gaming station, hanging on the wall, there is something that can be addressed to the art field. Maybe it is actually not, and many of you will simply define this kind of stuff ‘motorsport automobilia’. For us, at Car&vintage, a piece like that includes all the typical artifacts elements, all-in-one: design, extensive materials’ research, technique and, last but not least, an incredible source of memories for every true Ferrarista.

It is an original Ferrari F1-2000 floor. Developed in Maranello’s facilities, it was the ‘basement’ for one of Michael Schumacher’s cars during the 54th season of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship. Needless to say, this floor helped Kaiser Michael to secure his first title with Scuderia Ferrari. 

This carbon-fiber and honeycomb composite piece has been speeding up to 340+ km/h, supporting the mythological 2.993 cc and 810+ hp naturally aspirated Ferrari 049 V12 engine.

The car won 10 times out of 17 races, scoring an incredible 21 podiums, 10 pole positions and 5 fastest laps.
