You get the wheel set up, a three-pedal set, and the power supply that looks like a turbo charger.

It is not, however, an actual turbo charger.

The wheel has a new motor, an integrated cooling system, sensors to accurately detect handle position, and a new direct feedback feature. The wheel is outfitted with knobs, a dpad, and face buttons so players can easily toggle through menus.

On paper, the T-GT sure sounds impressive, with Thrustmaster spending 16,000 engineer hours trying faithfully reproduce the most realistic driving experience possible. That doesn’t come cheap!
