A Sneak Peek At The Thrustmaster Ferrari 250 GTO vintage wheel addon
Last week it came to our attention that Thrustmaster was preparing to launch no less than five, maybe six new Sim Racing related products for their Thrustmaster ECO system. Due to the seemingly unofficial nature of this info, I did decide to not share the information until it was officially revealed.
However, those who faithfully follow the Thrustmaster social media channels might now have noticed that one of the yet to be announced products has made a sneaky appearance. A few weeks ago, when Thrustmaster released their latest firmware updates, they already hinted support for some not yet revealed upcoming detachable wheels.
Now, a picture snapped at the Thrustmaster Booth during this weekends Paris Games Week trade fair shows us one of the upcoming products in the form of the Thrustmaster Ferrari 250 GTO vintage wheel add-on.
This new Thrustmaster Vintage addon rim is a replica steering wheel of Ferrari’s famous 250 GTO model. With only a relatively small production run of thirty-six cars, and with many of the examples produced having a great racing pedigree, the Ferrari 250 GTO has become one of the icons of Ferrari’s production history, with a revered position in collectors’ circles.
recently, the Ferrari 250 GTO model recently became available in Assetto Corsa and might be coming to a few more racing titles in the form of DLC downloads. Thrustmaster owners who are fans of vintage cars will now be able to drive their favorite classics using a wheel suited for the job.
At this time, the Thrustmaster Ferrari 250 GTO vintage wheel add-on is not yet officially revealed, and there is no additional info available. That said, if the leaked information is correct, you should see the Ferrari 250 GTO vintage wheel hit the market at a suggested retail price of €399/ $399.
As we stated at the beginning of this article, it seems that there are more interesting Thrustmaster Sim Racing related product on the way. A few of which were often requested by the community and will excite allot of Thrustmaster fans out there. If the unofficial info is correct, expect to see a Sparco branded shifter and handbrake, LED display addon, official loadcell brake mod, and a TS-PC Racer 488 Challenge edition soon.
We will keep you posted when we can share the exiting info in a somewhat more official fashion.
