Inside Sim Racing‘s created what is surely one of the greatest unboxing videos of all time, giving an amazing level of reverence to the arrival of one of the first Thrustmaster T500RS units in the US.

For the layman, this is the official GT5 wheel. The site describes the wheel as “probably the most important package we’ve had on our doorstep in a very long time. Thrustmaster shipped the wheel from France.

Staffer Darren has the “honour” of unboxing what is clearly the racing game wheel to end all racing game wheels, with the whole thing being set to thrusting rock.

It’s over 11 minutes long, and shows the wheel being set up to a seated cabinet. It comes with a price-tag of $600.

British gamers will have to pay £450 for it when it releases on January 14.

Mental? Maybe. Amazing? It is. See for yourself. Thanks, Joystiq.
