About the company

GTR Simulator is a brand of Abtivan, a company founded by car guys for car guys.  We started in Los Angeles in 2002 as a wholesaler and distributor of performance parts. Our product lines were based on what we demanded as high-performance auto enthusiasts

–we sold what we would want on our cars. Soon enough, we surpassed all of our sales goals, as  serious drivers came to us for wheels, brakes, lowering springs, struts, coil-overs, racing seats and a full range of accessories.

Our team of drivers, racers and engineers developed components for cars in various professional racing series, from GT cars to Touring cars to Grand Am as well as formula cars.

Following our success with road and race car performance parts, we decided to apply our knowledge to another of our passions: simulator racing and gaming. Many of the sim cockpits on the market were either unsteady, unrealistic or unaffordable.  With our engineering experience and established relationships with fabricators, we knew we could build a better racing rig and keep prices realistic (you shouldn’t need a sponsor to be able to afford a gaming accessory!).
Working with our network of professional race drivers, we spent hours examining the seating positions and dimensions of sports car and race car cockpits and figured out what traits would best be carried over into a gaming seat. From this process, the GTR Simulator line came to life, and GTR Simulator, Inc. was formed to distinguish our simulator efforts from our real-world auto businesses.
We remain headquartered in Southern California, where the surrounding tuner car culture and racing scene inspires our design and research efforts. Our sales, marketing and distribution facilities are exclusively in the United States.

"GTR Simulator. There is no comparison."
