DIY Formula One Wheel & New Photos & Info

Back in October, I posted a first story on Željko Roso’s impressive self-made Ferrari Formula One steering wheel. Even though Željko never planned on selling it, lots of feedback from the community changed his mind.

Below are first photos and info on his second F1 wheel creation, the hand-made wheels will soon be available to buy.

Features:

- 12 buttons
– 2 rotary switches to change display info
– 1 rotary switch for brightness
– 2 extra 12-position rotary switches
– 2 “thumb” rotary encoders for elegant and easy control
– 1 extra rotary encoder
– shift paddles and analog hall sensor clutch paddles
– 3 additional leds for various indications
– quick release

Željko estimates a price around 500€ per wheel, a video showing off all of the wheel’s features will be coming up in a couple of days.

    i wonder from what the ffb motor is from.

    but agree the wheel is just amazing :eek:

  • felipe

    What ffb motor is it using?? How to I contact Željko Roso? For about 500 euros (not more than that) I want to order one of these!

  • DeDios

    Considering some prices around web, for 500 euros is cheap! :) Looks great!

    no way 500 euros is cheap cheap is the DFGT or a second hand G25. I feel lots of wheels online are overpriced!

  • Vettel

  • mastersetter

    Come on guys do you realy think that whole wheel is 500e.This is just a wheel without FFB motors.So if you want to have this you still need a steering wheel like Momo or G25 and than you can replace your WHEEL with this one.Look at picture do you see rest of wheel?And belive me on this becouse i know Roso.

    I know this doesn’t include ffb! I just want the F1 wheel.

  • mike84

    okay so i am assuming this should be compatible with G25 wheel or any other brand.

    it would be better if he posted more information.

    Clearly you guys don’t know how much all the parts used add up to. I don’t even think he’s taking much money for all the hours of work he has to put in. 500€ is a lot of money, but it’s not a bad price for such a product. That’s just how it is.

    It also looks to be a bit simplified version of the wheel he built for himself.

  • zudthespud

    It look stunning, can’t wait to see it in action.

    It is a beautiful ‘steering wheel’. …and if every button is functional (or potentially depending on program(s) and need), wow! As far as price, it is all a matter of perspective; from the maker to the buyer. For example, if for the maker/creator he is a ‘ditch digger’ (no offense, just an example of income pay scale), then yes it is priced high. If it is from an aerospace engineer or brain surgeon, then it is offered dirt cheap. No doubt, because it’s obvious that a lot of effort and time has gone into this cottage/boutique wheel. Now if the buyer has not much ‘disposable’ income and obligations at home, ie. kids, a mortgage etc., then it is too expensive and thus not a sensible purchase. If the buyer has a very good income and has an ongoing ‘funding’ of his/her simulation racing hardware and software, then it is very affordable and maybe a drop in the bucket. For some in the middle, because it is their passion, may end up selling the family dog to get it. I will. Well, maybe I’ll feel differently once my Pug is house broken. :tongue:
