Which racing wheel should you choose to play Gran Turismo 7

With the arrival of Gran Turismo 7, the latest edition of the blockbuster sim racing video game series, it’s crucial to choose the right racing wheel to take advantage of all the sensations the game has to offer. With that in mind, Thrustmaster’s sim racing experts are thrilled to offer a selection of great racing wheels to help you really get the most out of one of the most highly-anticipated sim racing games of the year on PlayStation®.

Gran turismo : a sim game made for people who love lifelike racing sensations

Before getting into all of the specifics, a quick look in the rear-view mirror is a good idea.

Created by Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo is one of the most popular sim racing video game series worldwide. The original game was released in 1997: it was only available on Sony® PlayStation® consoles, which has also been the case for all subsequent games in the series. Even in its earliest iteration, Gran Turismo revolutionized car racing games by offering unique sensations and groundbreaking elements — like having to earn your driver’s license, and starting the game without access to high-performance cars.

25 years later, the Gran Turismo series has become absolutely legendary — with the latest edition, Gran Turismo 7, having been eagerly anticipated by legions of diehard fans around the world.

To help you be sure to get the most out of the new game and really experience all of its intensity, we’ve put together a selection of Thrustmaster racing wheels that are perfect for Gran Turismo 7.
