The Logitech Driving Force GT is an official racing wheel peripheral designed for racing games on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and Windows PCs.[1] It is manufactured and distributed by Logitech International S.A of Romanel-sur-Morges, Switzerland. The wheel was released on December 13, 2007.

Developed in conjunction with Polyphony Digital, first introduced at the 2007 Tokyo Game Show and intended for use with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Gran Turismo 5 and all PlayStation 3 auto racing games, the Driving Force GT is the fifth entry in the company's Driving Force series of game controllers and is the official steering wheel of the Gran Turismo game franchise.

Features include 900° steering (2.5 turns lock-to-lock), with force feedback, via a full-sized (diameter 28 cm), Momo-styled steering, full-sized throttle and brake pedals, standard PlayStation 3 gamepad buttons (Triangle, Circle, Cross and Square), a D-pad, an R3 and L3 button, both sets of shoulder buttons, both Start and Select buttons, and a PS button.

It features controls for real-time adjustment of both brake bias and traction control settings when playing Gran Turismo 5. Users may select gears either via a pair of button-shifters located on the back of the steering wheel (in place of Formula One-style paddle shifters), or sequential gear shift on the "dashboard" to the right of the wheel. The force feedback is driven from the games physics engine and simulates real-time "road feel".

It connects via USB to the PS3, PlayStation 2, and Windows PC. Use with Windows PCs requires the "Logitech Gaming Software" driver, which provides full compatibility with PC racing games.
