Fanatec – Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 Up For Pre-Order

A few days ago, Fanatec announced that they would be launching a new, 2020 limited edition F1 Licenced steering wheel. At the time of writing, not a lot of details were known, except for the part that it would feature some new technologies and materials.

Today, following an annual tradition, Fanatec unveiled the new officially licensed Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 and made the wheel available for pre-order. Keep in mind that in order to retain the limited edition status, Fanatec will only produce and sell 2020 units worldwide.

The awesome looking Fanatec F1 Style rim comes with some interesting features such as forged carbon, new single magnetic shifters, perforated leather grips, customizable button caps, and more.

The Fanatec Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 can be pre-ordered via the official Fanatec website for €449,95 / $449,95 + shipping. Needless to say, in order to operate this product, a compatible Fanatec Wheel Base (not included) is mandatory!

As a special promo, customers of the wheel will also have the option to purchase the official F1 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition, game by Codemasters (PC, Xbox One, or PS4*) for only 1 EUR / 1 USD / 1.50 AUD / 120 JPY.

You will find the purchase option to add the 1€ game offer in your shopping cart. The game keys are scheduled to be sent out when the title launches on July 7th. (*PS4 Game Key is currently not available for pre-order, pending approval from Sony Interactive Entertainment.)
