Asetek SimSports – Pagani Huayra R Sim Racing Pedals – The Interview

Asetek SimSports - Pagani Huayra R Sim Racing Pedals - The Interview

A few days ago, the Danish Asetek company introduced its upcoming Invicta Direct Drive wheelbase. Now the company is back with another product promo.

Back in 2020, Asetek announced a licensing, marketing, and product deal with exclusive hypercar brand Pagani Automobili, in order to develop a number of upcoming custom-design limited editions of Pagani-licensed SimRacing products within the premium racing simulator market.

Now Asetek founder André Eriksen, and Horacio Pagani, Founder and Chief Designer of Pagani Automobili S.p.A introduced the Pagani Huayra R Sim Racing Pedals, modeled after the pedal unit featured in the amazing Pagani Hyuara R track car.

The pedal arms and footplates on the Pagani Huayra R Sim Racing Pedal Set are based on the exact design used in the hypercar itself, with just a few tweaks to fit it for sim racing use. The provided elastomer is designed to give the feel of the Huayra R’s brake pedal, using Asetek SimSports’ T.H.O.R.P.™ brake system (Twin Hydraulic Opposing Rapid Pistons).

The hydraulic sim racing pedals are plug&play out of the box using the Asetek SimSports RaceHub™ software. Also, RaceHub enables quick and easy customization of the pedal settings as well as the configurable ARGB feature.

The Asetek SimSports Pagani Huayra R Sim Racing Pedal set is available via the official Asetek web store for €2,032.80 VAT included + Shipping.
