The well-known accessory-maker Thrustmaster is back at it again with a new add-on for its T-series racing wheels servo bases: the TS Ferrari 250 GTO Wheel Add-On. This new wheel is a replica of the wheels found in the 250 GTO sports cars from Ferrari. It’s made with a genuine wood finish, chrome logo, and metal faceplate. It also comes inside of a collector’s gift box.
Thrustmaster has labeled this add-on to be PC-only compatible, but one of the servos bases that you can use it with is the Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel that’s compatible with both PC and also Xbox One.
In any case, this 250 GTO replica is quite pricey. It comes in at $449.99 and will be a limited edition item. You can pre-order it now on Amazon, and it will be released on January 21st, 2018. If you do choose tog et it and have never used a wheel before, it will be quite a different experience from racing with a controller. Or, if you happen to be one of those uncultured folks who commit the forbidden act of playing racing/driving games with a keyboard and mouse, then it will definitely be a big change.
