Thrustmaster Introduces The 'Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel'

Continuing its close partnership with the prestigious Prancing Horse-brand automaker and its history of unique and innovative accessories, Thrustmaster is thrilled to announce the release of the Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel. Bringing the power and precision of the Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari's mechanical and technological pinnacle, the Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel is compatible with all PlayStation 2 and PC games for maximum versatility and enjoyment.

To create this new spearhead in its range of racing wheels, Thrustmaster combined only the best: in addition to an exact officially-licensed replica of the Enzo Ferrari wheel, the Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel is built with advanced technology ensuring full compatibility with PlayStation 2, PC and with all racing games on both systems.

“Once again, Ferrari has demonstrated its confidence in Thrustmaster’s expertise and know-how,” states Jean-Michel Detoc, Thrustmaster’s General Manager. “This new video game accessory was developed over the course of months of hard work by our R&D and marketing teams in conjunction with Ferrari SpA. The end result is the best combination of pure design, high performance and extreme driving sensations.”

The interior of the Enzo Ferrari features an innovative dashboard and a completely new steering wheel, optimizing interaction between man and machine – the flow of information, and the way the driver activates the controls. Thrustmaster has remained true to this design, incorporating these new features which are also incredibly useful for players in their racing games.

Like the original Ferrari wheel, Thrustmaster’s Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel features a carbon-textured rim, a beveled upper section, ultra high-quality rubberized handgrips, 4 wheel-mounted carbon levers and extensive controls on either side, all of which are easy to access and linked to game functions.

To go along with its exclusive license, Thrustmaster’s Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel also makes use of unique technologies: its advanced Force Feedback mechanism optimizes the effects generated by all PlayStation 2 and PC games, bringing them closer to reality than ever before. The fact that the wheel is compatible with all PlayStation 2 and PC racing games is sure to attract car-racing fans on both platforms.

Finally, for maximum comfort and perfect gaming posture, the Enzo Force Feedback Racing Wheel comes complete with sturdy, stable foot pedals, just like those in the real Enzo Ferrari.
