Audi and Sony have teamed up to create the ultimate racing simulator for Gran Turismo 5.

Recently unveiled at gamescom, the simulator was purpose-built by quattro GmbH and resembles the R8 LMS.  More importantly, it has an instrument cluster that displays all relevant game data and a steering wheel that feeds all inputs into a PlayStation 3. Other highlights include a pneumatic suspension which moves the car up to 150mm - depending on game play - and a Dolby surround sound system which helps to put you right in middle of the action.
