Built in collaboration with Asetek SimSports, the pedals mirror the units found in the Huayra R.
The high-end sim racing gear providers at Asetek SimSports have just teamed up with the legendary hypercar creators at Pagani Automobili to create a new set of sim racing pedals designed to mirror those found in the exclusive Huayra R. Like the track car they’re inspired by, this new set of pedals carry a shockingly stiff price tag.
Asetek SimSports is a relatively new venture spawned from Asetek, a name gamers might recognize from the company’s role in inventing sealed loop liquid coolers for computer processors. The SimSports side of the business just started in 2021, but the brand already has a range of relatively pricey pedal options available for sim racers. Expensive as they may be, the Asetek SimSports promise to provide realistic inputs with a ton of adjustability for sim drivers at any level thanks to some high-end piston setups behind the pedals. This latest set takes things to a whole new level however, teaming up with Pagani to create a near-perfect replica of the Huayra R’s frankly art-deco pedal box. That replication isn’t left to the design team either, as Asetek SimSports worked with the automaker to try and replicate the actual pedal feels of the Huayra R by way of some software tuning. If you’d like to use the pedals to drive other vehicles in the sim world, you will have the ability to modify that software as needed via the RaceHub toolkit.
While the pedals are currently only available for purchase in Europe, Asetek SimSports does plan to offer the setup to American sim racers. Of course anything with this much Pagani influence isn’t going to come cheap, with the pedals retailing for $1999 before sales tax when they arrive in the United States. There are certainly a ton of more affordable pedal options out there for the budget minded among us, including options from Asetek SimSports themselves. Not that anything hypercar related needs to be affordable, whether it’s made for the real world or a simulated one.
