Racing like a McLaren legend was never this easy. You no longer have to go through the gruelling tasks of training and spend years preparing to get behind the wheel. All you need to ensure is that your wallet can survive the hit of a couple of thousand dollars. The special edition Vive Pro VR headset is a joint initiative of HTC & McLaren. It offers unparalleled VR racing experience to fans.

The VR headset is paired with the new ‘McLaren Garage VR’ experience. This is where players can be part of the McLaren pit-crew, learning how to complete tyre adjustments just like crews do in a race. Players can also try and take on other players on a timed tyre change challenge.
The Vive Pro McLaren Limited Edition headset will also include a free six-month subscription on VIVEPORT. Players can download both the
- McLaren Garage VR experience and
- Customised RFactor2 McLaren Edition racing game

We wonder if the Sultan of Brunei would be getting one of these. After all he does have a garage that is bigger than a palace!
