Gran Turismo 7 is looking to become the ultimate racing sim out there when it launches next year, promising realism, authenticity, and mechanical depth and tightness the way this series has always been known to offer. Of course, for the racing sim fanatics out there, the best (and perhaps the only) way of playing one of these games is with a steering wheel accessory- and a mighty impressive one has been announced for Polyphony Digital and Sony’s upcoming racer.
Fanatec has unveiled the Gran Turismo Direct Drive Pro, which is the first officially licensed drive wheel accessory to be announced for the PS5 yet (though it will also work with PC and Xbox consoles)- and as it’s name suggests, goes hand-in-hand with the upcoming GT7. Offering 5Nm of torque (with its base model) and promising “the smoothest and most dynamic force feedback sensations”, it certainly looks like a monstrous piece of kit, while aesthetically, it’s got plenty going for it, especially with an LED strip to brighten things up. Check out the trailer below for more details.
The price for the wheel starts at $699.95, but goes up to $969.85 for the best and costliest model. Meanwhile, pre-orders are now live as well.
