Creating the passionate racing game drivers of tomorrow

With the Ferrari 458 Spider, Thrustmaster is making it possible for everyone to have a realistic wheel to use in racing games on Xbox One, allowing gamers to experience an unrivaled driving experience, and all of the fun and excitement racing games provide, without the need to invest time to master a Force Feedback wheel. This was an ambitous choice, but one which Thrustmaster's development teams accomplished with absolute success, thanks to their experience and expertise in creating the Ferrari 458 Italia wheel for Xbox 360. The Ferrari 458 Spider's ease of use, high-performance onboard technologies and aggressive pricing mean that great things are expected from this latest release from Thrustmaster.

All options are standard!

This new wheel release offers features that are not only simple to use, but also original and effective. Thrustmaster has incorporated simplicity and ease of use into this 7/10 scale replica (at 11 inches/28 cm in diameter) of the wheel on the real Ferrari 458 Spider car with all gamers in mind. The first thing any user will notice is that this is a "sports-type" wheel – GT-style. What will really catch the eye is the sleek look of the wheel, thanks to its red, textured rubber Ferrari grip. Two wheel-mounted Up and Down sequential paddle shifters, crafted of metal, add to the product's sporty look and design.

There aren't many options with the Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel, but that's simply because everything that you could want already comes standard on the wheel! The wheel features nine action buttons (including "View" and "Menu" buttons), a two-position manettino dial, an ENGINE START D-pad and an Xbox Guide button. "Under the hood", the wheel incorporates the Thrustmaster bungee cord mechanism, Thrustmaster's patented wheel recentering system – delivering realistic linear resistance, no matter how far the wheel is turned. Featuring 240° of rotation, this system allows you to take the most efficient line on the track.

Designed to adapt to the driver

The Ferrari 458 Spider also lets users customize their wheel, which can always be adapted to meet the driver's needs. The wheel's steering sensitivity can be adjusted, and includes four presets – allowing users to optimize the wheel's performance according to the type of track, the car being driven or their preferred driving styles. The pedal set, which incorporates a large foot rest, features pedals whose angle of inclination can be adjusted, and a brake pedal with progressive resistance.

Finally, the wheel includes a controller pairing LED for Kinect, along with a central clamping system which easily adapts to any type of support surface.

  • The Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel will be available from April 18, 2014, at a suggested retail price of $99.99.
