Watch our full review of Thrustmaster’s 488 GT3 sim racing steering wheel, a 1:1 replica of the real-world racing car’s wheel for PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
We have tested the new device, the first Thrustmaster has sipped with its new quick release system natively, on its direct drive, PC-only T818. We wanted to see if this new product aligns with the matching wheel base.
Of note, however, you can use an adaptor to affix the new 488 wheel to older Thrustmaster belt-driven wheel bases, including those that work on consoles.
It’s also a budget-friendly £199.99/$249.99/€249.99, so is not positioned as a high-end wheel, but rather an accessible add-on with a cool real-world link. With that in mind, is it any good? Watch our review and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
We also test the latest T818 wheel base update and Thrustmaster’s new app!
This wheel was sent by Thrustmaster for review, but it is not paid-for content.
