New Close Up of The Thrustmaster Gran Turismo Sport Wheel

In May of last year, visitors of the Gran Turismo Sport launch event at the Olympic Stadium in London got to see a development version of what could be the long-awaited successor to the famed Thrustmaster RS 500 racing wheel.

The nicely detailed wheel featured a leather and chrome finish and housed a set of metal paddle shifters. On the front of the wheel, we could see a D-Pad, 4 chrome color coded rotary dials, two analog sticks, a Mode button and the well known PlayStation buttons.

When the good people of Gran Turismo’s biggest community website “GTPlanet“, fired some questions at Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi, he surprisingly confirmed that the new Thrustmaster wheel is a ‘Direct Drive’ unit. Yet, up until now, we are still not sure if this is actually the case. After almost a year, the new GT branded Thrustmaster wheel is still somewhat of a mystery.

Now a new photo surfaced on the web, giving us a better close-up look at the wheel rim and the featured controls. As far as the internal workings of the wheel are concerned… No news yet.
