Fanatec CSL Elite PS4 – Now Available in North America

Back in June, Fanatec announced the new CSL Elite Racing Wheel which is officially licensed for the PlayStation PS4. However, at the time the new wheel for the PS4 was only available in Europe and Australia.

Today Fanatec is proud to announce that the CSL Elite Racing Wheel PS4 is finally available in North America.

As an officially licensed racing wheel, The CSL Elite will be used as a reference during PS4 game development. The license ensures the peripheral is fully tested and is supported in the menu of the PS4 system. However, being marketed as a dedicated PlayStation peripheral, this new wheel is also compatible with the PC and Xbox One. (Depending on the attached steering wheel)

The CSL Elite Racing Wheel PS4 is available for pre-order at the Fanatec Web Store for $479.95.  Fanatec can also provide you with a CSL Elite Starter Kit including the CSL Elite Pedals for $499.95. The first units are scheduled to be shipped on September 27.

CSL Elite Racing Wheel PS4 Features:

  • Ultra-strong brushless servo motor which delivers up to 6Nm of torque on the steering axis
  • Single belt drive unit with ultra-low lag and cogging, and big ball bearings for lowest friction
