Most people head to their local warehouse club store for bulk home essentials like toilet paper, dish soap, or 128-packs of Red Bull, but Costco U.K. has stepped up their offerings with a full-size Formula 1 race simulator for £74,999.91, roughly $115,000, as reported by Gizmodo. The simulator, nestled quietly in the computers section of the store's website, is made by FMCG International. The car features a woven composite body with carbon fiber details, a realistic removable steering wheel, and Pirelli show tires with either AP Racing or Brembo brake calipers.

The simulator offers a realistic driving experience via a 5.1 digital surround sound system and three 23" screens, powered by what Costco describes as a "custom super high end digital PC with Intel Core i7 processor." The $115,000 price tag also includes training on the simulator and, since the item is made to order, a custom paint color of the buyer's choice.

This item is sure to top many Father's Day wish lists, but unfortunately Costco stores in the U.S. don't currently offer the simulator. Though, something tells us that if you have enough money to purchase one, you could probably find a way to get it to your home.
