Rennes, April 6, 2023 — Thrustmaster® is thrilled to unveil a brand-new bundle, featuring a racing wheel base and wheel rim proudly sporting the Scuderia Ferrari colors: T818 Ferrari SF1000 Simulator.
Ferrari took the opportunity to announce the new flagship product in Thrustmaster’s racing lineup at the launch of the Ferrari Esports Series 2023 season. Composed of the very latest direct-drive racing wheel base — T818 — alongside the iconic Formula Wheel Add-On Ferrari SF1000 Edition wheel rim and a versatile mounting system for desks, tables or cockpits, this dream-team bundle delivers breathtaking esports-caliber performance.
T818, with its new Rosso Corsa metal plates and elegant Scuderia Ferrari logo, provides 10 N⋅m of constant torque for smooth, powerful and turbocharged Force Feedback thanks to direct-drive technology. The extensive configuration options let the most experienced drivers race with truly unfiltered power — allowing them to feel all effects being transmitted by the game as they were meant to be experienced, for absolute control of their vehicle.
With up to 69 items of information available via its 4.3-inch / 109-mm display, 25 buttons (including 7 encoders) and 100% carbon fiber central faceplate, the Ferrari SF1000 wheel rim really needs no introduction. A 1:1 scale replica of the wheel from the modern classic SF1000 single-seater race car, it’s a legend in the sim racing world.
T818 Ferrari SF1000 Simulator — an officially-licensed Ferrari product, compatible with PC and with 100% of Thrustmaster’s racing ecosystem — has been crafted to meet the needs of the very best racing drivers, and appeal to even the most discerning Tifosi
