Lightbulb Porsche 911 Turbo Racing Wheel

Hi Guys,

Fanatec released a racing wheel licensed by Porsche for PC and PS3. The wheel resembles the steering in the Porsche 911 Turbo and features an authentic Porsche logo and genuine hand stitched leather just like on the real wheel.

Last week I received the wheel and I am having fun since then playing GTR2. Thought of sharing a few pics with you guys.

The steering, the pedals, the shifter - everything looks so authentic, you fall it love with it if you are a Porsche fan.

He can configure it easily to RHD. I have the Logitech G25 wheel (as well as the Wingman Formula Force) and wonder how different this is going to feel. Hows the force feedback? How does a Ferrari feel on the Porsche wheel?

Yeah guys, it's possible to change the shifter to the left side. The wheel also has paddle shifters and it's fun using them. There's also a sequential shifter provided in the box.

There are three motors inside the unit to deliver excellent force feedback and vibration effects. The steering vibrates as you floor the gas pedal.

The wheel costs 350$ plus shipping (the box is pretty heavy weighing in at 10kgs).

Here's a video of me driving a Ferrari F550 around Imola in GTR2 -

Where did you order from? The fanatec.com webstore doesn't seem to ship it.

I have sources in Fanatec that directly shipped the wheel from their production facility.
