The Logitech Driving Force GT is an PlayStation 3's racing wheel peripheral intended for use with racing games on the PlayStation 3. It is manufactured and distributed by Logitech International S.A of Romanel-sur-Morges, Switzerland.

Developed in conjunction with Polyphony Digital, first introduced at the 2007 Tokyo Game Show and intended for use with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and Gran Turismo 5, 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 4.5 cm), MOMO-styled steering wheel and full-sized throttle, brake and clutch pedals, standard PlayStation 3 gamepad buttons but X, O, Triangle and Square are white coloured, the PS button with word PS to turn on/off the wheel and PS3 console (XMB), Left and Right Analog Stick and L3/R3 buttons,individually sprung to simulate real pedal efforts.

Added realism is in the form of real-time adjustment of both brake bias and traction control settings when playing Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. Users may select gears either via a Formula One paddle shifter on the steering wheel or sequential gear shift on the "dashboard" to the right of the wheel. The force feedback is driven from the games physics engine and adds additional realism via simulated, real-time "road feel".

Connection mostly to the PS3 is via any one of that console's USB ports. The wheel also works with the PlayStation 2, also via a USB connection (slimline only). The wheel has limited compatibility with PC racing games, and was originally supported through drivers for the earlier Driving Force Pro, later with its own drivers. It is widely available at a retail price of $99 USD (the wheel's price along with Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel).
