With the Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit there is no need to re-arrange your living room or gaming setup to use it. With the awesome and easy adjustable design ANY gamer, adult or child, can use the cockpit.
Stefano Saporetti, Head of Licensing at Ferrari S.p.A. had this to say:
“Our work with Thrustmaster shows both companies’ commitment to our shared values, namely a dedication to innovation and quality. This product brings its unique concept, with the emotional impact of Ferrari, right into users’ living rooms, allowing them to enjoy racing in a very immersive way.”
- Superior Features including G.V.S (Global Vibration System): the wheel incorporates GVS technology and allows for high levels of vibrations to be felt from the pedals all the way up to the wheel itself. This gives the user an extremely realistic racing experience. The wheel features 16-bit performance for more than 65,000 values on the steering allowing you to have unparalleled control even when turning. The Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit also features metal sequential paddle shifters for Gear shifting as well as a Manettino® dial as can be seen on a real Ferrari®. The wheel also features textured rubber grips to ensure both comfort and maximum grip-ability. The Cockpit also comes with a headset connector allowing you to communicate with your friends in multi-player matches.
- Unique Metal Look: The Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit has a streamlined “Musetto” body shape with metal structure and looks great in any living room along with any gaming setup. The wheel measures 11.2 inches and is a 7/10 scaled replica of the actual wheel seen in the Ferrari F458 Italia. It comes with a wide weighted base at just over 22 pounds that provides you with excellent stability. The 2 metal pedals come built into the system creating more stability and allowing you to get into your races as fast as possible with minimal setup. Simply connect, adjust and race to your hearts content.
