This year’s Detroit Auto Show featured an extra highlight for auto racing enthusiasts visiting the Cadillac booth. In addition to the more than 500 cars on the Detroit Auto Show floor, from January 14 – 22, thousands of lucky automotive fans were able to have an exciting racing experience on the special CXC-built Cadillac racing simulator.
CXC Simulations created a customized version of its production Motion Pro II racing simulator for Cadillac, outfitted with a custom-built motion system of commercial grade. To give drivers an authentic Cadillac racing feel, CXC used a Recaro seat from the Cadillac CTSv-R to mimic its controls. Cadillac then built a new body shrouding, cohesively adding the Cadillac styling to the Motion Pro II’s exceptional hardware.
The CXC Motion Pro II simulator developed exclusively for Cadillac’s racing program use began at the Detroit Auto Show last month, but will also be used for dealer events, its V-Series Performance Driving Lab (Cadillac’s preferred customer driving program), hospitality and marketing events. The pair of custom-built Motion Pro II simulators will travel the country with the Cadillac racecar, the CTSv-R.
Many local and international news agencies covered the CXC Cadillac racing simulator. Autotrader.com’s feature on the Detroit Auto Show’s “Fun Activities” gave “the crown of racing simulator king” to Cadillac “for an incredible and immersive experience with the chance to get real coaching from actual racing school instructors.” Cadillac reps described their simulators as being designed from the ground up to give a realistic racing experience – an absolute standard for CXC Simulations.
CXC Simulations was pleased to prove itself as a standout in the ranks of racing simulators and give show-goers an authentic-feeling simulator racing experience. We look forward to seeing you at upcoming Cadillac racing events!
CXC Simulations is headquartered in Marina del Rey, California and was established specifically to manufacture a professional-level racing simulator that was not only suited to pro drivers and race teams, but one that was practical for home use as well. Developed with the expertise and experience of professional drivers and engineers over a two-year period, the result was the CXC Motion Pro II, about which AutoWeek said, “might just be the best racing simulator in the world.”
Powered by a purpose-built rack-mounted simulation computer, the MP II is meticulously assembled from the same materials as racecars: aluminum, laser-cut steel and carbon fiber. It is compatible with all major commercial and online software options and users may choose from a practically limitless and ever-increasing list of modern or vintage cars to drive, including F1, GT, NASCAR, sports cars, off-road, open-wheel and rally (even race boats) and tracks around the world to race on. Yet what separates the MP II from other simulators is the implementation and interpretation of that software; the precise timing, intensity and accuracy of its proprietary full-motion system, tactile transducers and force-feedback controls, together with 5.1 surround sound and a 1080p high-definition panorama video display. The MP II realistically reproduces the sensation of racing, making it the ultimate driving simulator for both racing professionals and recreational enthusiasts alike.
