Thrustmaster is again partnering with Ferrari for its latest piece of hardware: the T80 Ferrari 488 GTB Edition. If you’ve recently invested in high-end equipment, don’t get too worried: this entry-level wheel is aimed at the lower-end of the market.
Designed with “fun in mind”, the T80 is an 8:10 scale replica of the same wheel found in the Ferrari 488 GTB. It is designed for beginners and first-time wheel owners and uses the “Thrustmaster Bungee Cord” in place of a force-feedback motor.
In addition to the dedicated PlayStation 4 “PS”, “Share”, and “Options” buttons, the wheel includes 11 other buttons, a D-pad, two wheel-mounted, metal paddle-shifters, pedal set, and integrated table clamping system.
Without force-feedback, the T80 won’t interest most sim-racers, but its price tag will attract the attention of other consumers. It’s available for just $99.99 USD at a wide range of retailers, and will hopefully attract some newcomers to this hobby of ours.
