The replica Ferrari wheel comes equipped with a 4.3” interactive LED screen that can be connected natively or wirelessly to Wi-Fi. The display fits up to 69 items of information and will feature different designs depending on what is being played. What’s more, the wheel will feature native integration of the screen in F1 2020 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Xbox users will need to configure the wheel for wireless connectivity using Thrustmaster’s TM Connect web platform.
The replica racing wheel features a whopping 11 physical action buttons and seven encoders. The wheel is built with a carbon fiber faceplate, textured rubber grips, and aluminum paddle shifters. Two alterative paddle shifters, the T-Chrono Paddles, will also be available separately. The paddle shifters include gold-plated silver contact switches, allowing for more responsive gear shifting with lower contact resistance. The wheel is compatible with nearly all Thrustmaster T-Series bases.
The Formula Wheel Add-On Ferrari SF1000 Edition will release worldwide on August 26, 2021 for $349.99 USD. The T-Chrono Paddles can be purchased separately for $69.99 USD. Head over to the Thrustmaster website for more details.
