Among the plenty of features Fanatec’s upcoming ClubSport Wheel base, the ability to use different wheel rims thanks to the quick release mechanism may be the most ground-breaking one.
Along with the base, Fanatec has unveiled the F1-style rim and announced that several other rims are already in the works. Thomas Jackermeier has now shed some light on these upcoming wheels by revealing some additional info.
Among the planned rims is a GT-style rim that is a fully-licensed 100% replica of a real GT car rim. Given that Fanatec has maintained a very close relationship with Porsche, we might end up with something that looks very much like this:
Aside from the GT wheel, the company is also working on rally/drifting & NASCAR rims, the stock car rim will come in authentic size exceeding 350mm.
And if you´re still not impressed, the company is even planning to release a more-realistic Formula One style rim sometime next year, the rim is planned to offer all features that a real 2012 F1 rim will have.
Fanatec expects these rims to cost between 150-300€, the next rim is expected to be announced in September. For a full feature list of the ClubSport Wheel base, click here
