Build your own Ferrari F430

Vrooooooom...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

If you can’t afford a Ferrari F430 then you’ll be glad to hear that the car firm’s inked a deal with gaming accessory firm Thrustmaster to let you buy individual parts of the car instead. Well, sort of.

Thrustmaster's wheel is an exact F430 replica

Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F430 force feedback racing wheel for the PC is said to be an exact replica of the car’s steering wheel. Although designed for use on virtual roads, the replica sports an “engine start” button and a whole series of switches, buttons and knobs.

For example, a “Manettino” dial, with five backlit positions, enables you to adjust your virtual car’s settings, such as breaking force, in the middle of a race.

The wheel is bundled with a pedal set that’s weighed for stability. It also has a magnetic resistance feature that Thrustmaster claimed will provide realistic and controlled power management during games.

Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F430 FFB Wheel for the PC will be available later this month for around £100 ($180/€130).
