Ahead of the final race of the 2018 Formula One World Championship, HTC has announced a McLaren-themed version of its Vive Pro virtual reality headset.

Simply named the “HTC Vive Pro McLaren Edition”, the package a pair of 2018-spec controllers and a Vive Pro headset – with the latter sporting orange accents reminiscent of the shade of ‘Papaya Orange’ used on McLaren’s Formula One cars.

In addition to the hardware, the HTC Vive Pro Mclaren Edition is bundled with appropriately McLaren-themed software. As well as the McLaren VR Garage Experience app, which lets users experience what being a part of McLaren’s pit crew is like, buyers will also be able to race some of McLaren’s most notable Formula One cars in the rFactor 2 McLaren Edition simulator.

Rounding off the package is a six-month subscription to the ‘Viveport’ service, which grants users access to 50 HTC Vive games and apps of their choice every month.

HTC didn’t reveal how many versions of the Vive Pro McLaren Edition it will sell, though the package’s £1,450 asking price likely means it won’t sell out anytime soon.
