Thrustmaster's New Sparco R383 Wheels Adds More Immersion To Your Rally Races

A new wheel from Thrustmaster has arrived, and rally fans will benefit the most from the new peripheral. The Sparco R383 is one of the most recognizable steering wheels in racing, and now you can use it to steer your virtual car to the finish line with Thrustmaster’s latest wheel “mod.”

The 1:1 replica, officially called the “Rally Wheel Add-On Sparco R383 Mod,” features a black suede rim with a brushed metal faceplate. Two metal paddle shifters are located in the back and measure five inches in height. You can adjust the paddles’ position so that it’s easy to reach, whether you’re on a straight or making a tight hairpin turn. It also includes nine buttons located on the edges of the faceplate, as well as a directional pad that acts as another button when it’s pressed down.

Because it’s a standalone add-on, the wheel is compatible with multiple bases in Thrustmaster’s massive lineup, which means that you can use it on consoles and the PC. You can check out the list of supported wheels below. The Sparco R383 wheel is available now for a pricey $200.

    Woah. $200USD for a rim. Thrustmaster is moving into Fanatec territory here. I have a T300 RS and love it paired with my G27 modified pedals using an adapter from Ricmotech. However, if I'm going to put a bunch of money into a shifter, pedals, and different rims, I'm just going to step up to the far superior Fanatec hardware. Kudos for offering the rim in full 1:1 scale however to add to the realism.

    That's a lot of money for a round little logo in the center of the wheel.

    Hah. You haven't shopped Fanatec hardware prices for just wheel rims have you? Try this BMW racing rim out for size for $250 USD:
