Born out of passion and love for motorsport and sim racing, the British VPG brand was founded by Mike and Manny after they successfully designed and built a custom wheel for their e-sports team. The small started their career by producing the scratch-built Elemento and Elemento Pro wheels.
A while ago we took a look at their V-RSPG Pro Racing Wheel which is a handmade high-end SimHub-compatible sim racing steering wheel featuring a built-in 4.3” integrated Vocore 3mm Gorilla Glass screen.
Now let’s have a look at the high-end VPG V-PGT which is a screenless high-end VPG Sim Racing rim that is available in both a forged and Standard carbon version. The V-PGT carbon fiber wheel body is fitted with injected molded grips, CNC’d anodized aluminum knobs, and great-looking yet useful button guards.
The V-PGT front panel features an impressive array of Automotive-Grade electronics, including 12 Apem 5G 6.5N buttons, 3 Elma E33 rotary encoders, 1 Elma MR50 rotary switch, 2 Elma E33 rotary thumb encoders, and 2 Otto P9 push buttons. Furthermore, the wheel features 96 RGB individually controlled LEDs and 62 inputs which can be customized using the superb SimHub software. The electronics are connected to the PC via an included heavy-duty coiled USB cable.
The rear carbon fiber wheel cover houses a 70mm carbon fiber QR Hub plate, and boasts 4 magnetic paddle shifters with industrial-grade microswitches, ensuring a staggering lifespan of 1 million clicks.
A nice detail is that the VPG V-PGT Racing Wheel comes in an industrial-grade hard case to ensure safety and ease of transportation.
The Standard Carbon VPG V-PGT Racing Wheel is available for £1449.00 excl. VAT (€1660.00 excl. VAT) + shipping. The Forged Carbon version will add an extra £100.00 excl. VAT.
