Cologne, August 6, 2015 — Thrustmaster is adding a new Ferrari replica racing wheel to its racing ecosystem: the first 11.8”/30 cm wheel made from Alcantara® called the 599XX EVO 30 Wheel Add-On Alcantara® Edition. This add-on will allow gamers to experience a unique wheel, with a new diameter, wrapped with a new material that has been praised by racing drivers.

Genuine Alcantara® wrapping and large size:

The 599XX EVO 30 Wheel Add-On Alcantara® Edition is manufactured in the very same way as the material used on Ferrari wheels, in Alcantara® S.p.A's factory. This material is unique and innovative in its design, its aesthetics and its technical and sensory properties that no other material can hold a claim to. The hand-stitched wrapping covers the wheel's structure and is fully on par with automotive standards, featuring polyurethane molding and an internal hoop made of steel. This exceptional, high-end design allows users to experience every driving sensation – including Force Feedback effects – to the maximum, while offering a unique flexible tactile sensation and unrivalled comfort. The central steering plate is made from brushed metal, adding another high quality material to this add-on.

This detachable wheel is an 8:10 scale replica of the 599XX EVO and is officially licensed by Ferrari. It is fitted with the Thrustmaster Quick Release system and is compatible with all Thrustmaster racing wheels featuring a detachable wheel (T500 RS, Ferrari F1 Integral T500, T300 RS, T300 Ferrari GTE, TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition).

Equipped for performance:

The 599XX EVO 30 Wheel Add-On Alcantara® Edition offers controls designed for efficient, pleasant and high-performance driving. For this reason, the two large, 5.1”/13 cm-tall wheel-mounted paddle shifters are instantly accessible, as are the six action buttons, the 3-position rotary switch with push function in central position and the multidirectional D-pad.

  • The 599XX EVO 30 Wheel Add-On Alcantara Edition will be available in Q4 2015 at the suggested retail price (SRP) of €179.99 (taxes included).
