The Mercedes-AMG – GT Edition SIM Wheel is not just a steering wheel; it’s a testament to the intense thrill of Motorsport. Born from the fusion of Cube Controls’ cutting-edge manufacturing technology and Mercedes-AMG’s racing legacy, this wheel offers an opportunity to have an officially endorsed sim racing wheel attached to your wheelbase.
Every detail, from its state-of-the-art design to the tactile feedback, is meticulously crafted to mirror the quality and performance of the Mercedes-AMG GT Track Series cars.
The wheel’s construction features the same shifters used in high-end GT vehicles, ensuring precision control in the most demanding racing sessions. Its ergonomic design, inspired by pro-racers’ insights, guarantees comfort and stability, allowing you to navigate the most challenging tracks with confidence.
The wheel’s robust construction showcases a grip-to-grip diameter of 320 mm, ensuring a realistic and comfortable handling experience. The use of genuine suede for the grip material emphasizes luxury and comfort, while the wheel’s overall weight of 873g provides a balanced, authentic feel reminiscent of real-world racing dynamics.
With an array of programmable buttons and rotary encoders, the Mercedes-AMG – GT Edition SIM Wheel offers plenty of customisation options. Each input is designed for responsiveness and reliability, allowing racers to fine-tune their in-game controls for optimal performance.
Comes equipped with an array of buttons, rotaries, and paddles designed to offer comprehensive control and a realistic racing experience. Here’s a typical configuration you might expect on such a wheel:
Paddles: 2 (usually used for shifting gears)
Push Buttons: 10 (fully assignable to whatever functions you need such as DRS activation, Pit Speed Limiter, Headlight flash and so on)
Rotary Encoders: 2 (used for on-the-fly adjustments to vehicle settings such as ABS, Bias or whatever you prefer).
Multi-directional encoders: 2 9-way multi-directional encoders with rotary function.
The shifters, constructed with anodized aluminum and featuring carbon fibre plates, offer a tactile and auditory feedback that adds depth, not intrusion, in to your sim racing sessions. These revised, high-spec shifters are adjustable, providing a personalized throw and tension feel, replicating the Mercedes-AMG’s real-world racing approach. They’re completely anodized (except for the carbon paddle plates) and look very neat and tidy, with a new, narrow body on the back of this wheel’s chassis.
