Ron has created a very well-made unboxing video of Fanatec’s newest wheel offering – the CSL Elite Wheel.
The video shows off Ron unboxing the wheel and comparing it to other Fanatec wheels, showing off his quite vast collection. Narrated in German, English subtitles are available within the video as well.
Fully compatible to the Playstation 4, the wheel comes with all bells and whistles you’d expect from a top-end Fanatec product, including brushless servo motor, 1080 rotation, quick change mechanism and much more as listed below.
Aside from the usual built quality and features, Fanatec has squeezed in a brand new invention as well as the wheel comes with interchangeable buttons that can used to customize the wheel plate.
Despite being primarily advertised as Playstation 4 compatible, the wheel is also compatible to both Windows PCs and Xbox One.
European & Australian buyers can order right away as the wheel is already in stock, selling for 499.95 including VAT. More information is available here.
