Although modern driving simulators tend to model gear changing fairly well, without the proper accessory right in your hand, it is hardly possible to capture the true joy of manual shifting. The new shifter from Pro Sim focuses in on that exact problem, by offering an enhanced experience through a partnership with respected engineering company Quaife.
The contact point on the shifter is higher than usual, staying loyal to the shifters usually found in vintage cars. We can already tell that this feature will blend well with appropriate steering wheels to really enhance the feeling of driving older cars in players’ sims of choice.
In the video above we noticed the rather rough sound of changing gears, but considering how the product is still in the development phase, it is likely that this issue will be mended by the time the shifter arrives in stores.
Back in April the company announced first tests of the prototype had gotten underway, so we presume we won’t have to wait too long to get the final product. Reflecting its professional-grade status, the price for the shifter is supposed to start at around 1000 British pounds.
