ClubSport Steering Wheel GT Alcantara Review

Steering Wheel GT Alcantara

This will be short, the steering wheel GT Alcantara is entire the same wheel as the GT style steering wheel but in genuine Alcantara® and with a striking lime green accents that add a splash of color, I really like the color in the cross-stitching, it´s a real upgrade from the white in the Suede leather version.

same product were my main thoughts when trying this steering wheel, we all know is a variation on the popular ClubSport Steering Wheel GT specifically a bundle of the ClubSport Steering Wheel Universal Hub for Xbox One and the ClubSport Wheel Rim GT Alcantara.

At the end it was a great experience the functionality its ok, with a diameter of 33 cm can be adjusted to a variety of GT cars and of course the rim is made in brushed and anodised aluminium and covered in genuine Alcantara ideal for a wide variety of GT cars.

Makes sense buying this machine? lest find out…

Final Analyze

Worth the 440 $ you will spend on this product?  Well, the answer is, depend, Are you making an upgrade from the “last version” to this new version? if It is your scenario, I think not, Don´t get me wrong with this rim you will get a lot of fun driving GT title yet there are not enough reasons for me to spend 400$ just for new lines in lemon colors and an Alcantara cover.

On the other hand, if you are new to GT this product is a truly beautiful steering wheel, I was impressed with the realism you get and how lightweight it is, if you wonder about the performance let me tell you is very good also amazing smoothness and force feedback strength and feel.
