First Licensed Xbox 360 Wheel From Ferrari

Thrustmaster announced the launch of the Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox 360 and boasts two official licenses from Ferrari and Xbox 360 - an exclusive worldwide collaboration. A replica of the Forza Motorsport 4 hero vehicle, the official F458 Italia, this racing wheel provides the ideal combination to enjoy a truly immersive gaming experience - a must-have for true racing enthusiasts!


A specific development process was initiated in close collaboration with Ferrari. The Maranello engineers’ latest flagship, the Ferrari 458 Italia, was chosen as a basis for the creation of this replica racing wheel - a logical choice indeed owing to this unique car’s design and character.

On one side, the Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox 360 features an exclusive racing wheel with a large number of controls, while on the other, an Xbox 360 controller requires controls that are specific to this console. The different action buttons and controls are within easy reach of the user’s fingers - making it simple to customize settings while racing, or access the Xbox 360 interface.

The racing wheel’s 11 inch diameter wheel and rubber-textured grip will enable drivers to improve their best lap times consistently, with optimum comfort. Gears are shifted up and down using the wheel’s built-in metal gear shifters. Unrivaled realism and detail are supported by the presence of a "Manettino" dial enabling users to modify certain in-race settings (such as changing player views in Forza Motorsport 4).


Extensive equipment is available out of the box with 8 action buttons, an Engine Start D-pad, an Xbox 360 Guide button and a connector for the Xbox 360 headset and microphone. Under the bonnet dwells a "Bungee Cord" automatic centering system offering progressive resistance over a 270-degree angle, for a more immersive racing experience. The pedal base has not been neglected; it features a wide footrest, a long-stroke accelerator pedal and a resistant brake pedal, for more precision.

The Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox360 will be available in October at a suggested retail price of $89.99.

UPDATE: No force feedback according to Thrustmaster
