Ferrari Press Release:

Thrustmaster is introducing its latest exclusive controller under official Ferrari license, designed to offer extreme precision, with built-in Light Feedback and Vibration Feedback and speed gauges. This new release features an official Xbox 360® license, and is honed to take pole in every race.

An unrivalled, truly innovative design:

The GPX LightBack Ferrari F1 Edition hardly goes unnoticed. Boasting a new design and looks inspired by the Musetto (i.e. the nose) of the Ferrari F1, it also proudly bears the signature of Scuderia elite driver and Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso!

The GPX LightBack Ferrari F1 Edition’s unrivalled looks become even more remarkable during gameplay, thanks to 2 exclusive features: Light Feedback and speed gauges. Light Feedback enhances the gamepad’s ministicks with interactive backlighting, which illuminates in sync with in-game events. The 2 speed gauges feature 8 built-in LEDs, which offer improved visibility and control over throttle and brakes.
The Light Feedback and speed gauges can be activated or deactivated by means of 2 ON/OFF switches.

These specific features enable the player to visualize the game’s essential parameters – such as engine speed or braking power – during races and improve their performance using increasingly precise indicators. The GPX LightBack Ferrari F1 Edition also packs a punch under the hood, with a Vibration Feedback feature controlled by 2 high-frequency vibration motors built into the device’s grips. These will enable Xbox 360® owners, current users of Windows ®7 and Vista and future users of Windows®8 to truly unleash the power of their engines.

Optimized precision for ultimate performance:

In addition to its performance enhancement features, the GPX LightBack Ferrari F1 Edition offers unrivalled gaming precision. Thanks to a new firmware, its ministicks indeed offer optimized precision – twice as much, in fact, as any other currently available controller. The ministicks also feature a textured non-slip rubber skin, ensuring optimum grip and comfort.

The 2 progressive triggers, long and curved, are designed to offer optimum ergonomics, allowing enhanced adjustment and control over all actions. The cross-shaped D-pad is also designed to offer enhanced precision in all 8 directions. The controller’s equipment is rounded off by an Xbox Guide/Windows Live button featuring 4 LEDs and a built-in connector for a headset and microphone.
