There are a few companies out there that make racing wheels for game consoles and PCs. Some of them are very expensive and others are affordable. Thrustmaster has announced a new racing wheel for the Xbox One that falls into the affordable category.
The new racing wheel is called the Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel and it is an officially licensed product from Ferrari. The racing wheel has a red rubberized grip and dual paddle shifters for changing gears.
The racing wheel is a nine-button device that includes a view and menu button. The engine start button is actually a d-pad. The racing wheel comes with a pedal set with adjustable travel and linear feedback. The wheel itself has a diameter of 11-inches.
It is a 7/10 scale replica of the actual Ferrari 458 Spider steering wheel. The racing wheel uses the bungee cord system that Thustmaster has used for a long time. It isn't a force feedback wheel. One of the best features is the price; the racing wheel will ship April 18 for $99.99.
