If you’re a hardcore racing fan, then you are probably waiting for any sort of hands-on videos for the upcoming Thrustmaster T500RS steering wheel from an independent source. Well, you’re in luck!

Racing game enthusiast site, InsideSimRacing has recently unleashed an over 11 minute unboxing and first impressions video of the luxurious, $600 Thrustmaster T500RS racing wheel, which you can take a look at below:

It seems that the wheel is quite customizable (it even comes with an optional brake modifier to install in the box), and initial impressions are positive – though the game works in full only with Gran Turismo 5. The Thrustmaster T500RS is due out on January 5th in North America and Europe, and January 25th in Japan for $599.99/£449.99/€499.99.
