It's a long name for Fanatec's latest wheel and, at $200, one of its most affordable.

That's just the cost of the wheel itself. You'll need to buy a wheel base to connect it to as well.

This is actually a reboot of an earlier wheel, the biggest change being revised shifters.

The new shifters use magnetic resistance to provide a crisp feel.

At 300mm, the wheel is slightly larger than the company's ClubSport Formula wheel.

There are plenty of controls here for various in-game functions.

Those controls are designed to exactly replicate those on the McLaren 650S GT3!
