Last week, Thrustmaster announced that they would be partnering with Ferrari to help celebrate the legendary car company for its 70 anniversary. Today, another Playstation 4 racing wheel has been announced, this time a replica of the T80 Ferrari 488 GTB.
Much like the previously announced 250 GTO wheel, the 488 GTB wheel is an 8:10 scale replica that is officially licensed by Ferrari and features all the amenities of a normal PlayStation 4 controller, including a “PS,” “SHARE,” and “OPTIONS” button. The wheel is designed for easy handling and features textured rubbered grips, and Thrustmaster says the wheel is perfect for GT, F1, Rally, arcade-style, and any other type of racing a player may like to do.
Unlike the last wheel that was announced, the T80 Ferrari 488 GTB Wheel will be a bit more cost-friendly, only running consumers $99.99. For more on the wheel, make sure to check out below, courtesy of Thrustmaster:
The T80 Ferrari 488 GTB Edition has many great features designed to not only let gamers start racing right away, but also to further hone their skills that can take them to the next level – and even guide budding virtual race car drivers through the learning curve. The wheel features 11 action buttons, a D-pad, 2 wheel-mounted sequential paddle shifters (crafted of metal and 2.8 inches/7 cm tall), a large pedal set with adjustable inclination and a wide foot-rest, plus a central clamping system with wide jaws for optimal stability. On a technical level the wheel provides realistic linear resistance with automatic re-centering (via the exclusive Thrustmaster Bungee Cord system) for a lifelike racing experience.
