BMW has unveiled a steering wheel tailor-made for the young affluent class (assuming there still is one) who grew up driving in video games. This new device, the $1,600 BMW M Performance Steering Wheel, features a fuel efficiency tracker, a race and lap timer, and, best of all, a G-force meter that shows drivers just how way-cool awesome their driving skills are as they carve through turns and accelerate down straightaways.

Coming with three modes, sport, efficiency, and race, the Alcantara suede wrapped steering wheel will be a dealer-installed option on a number of BMW M and traditional models.
