Yesterday,  Fanatec launched the pre-order for the new Fanatec Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 of which they only produced and will sell 2020 units worldwide.

Today, GamerMuscle who besides loving Tea, is also a big fanboy of Fanatec gear, takes a first look at the new Fanatec Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020. GM lets us have a detailed look at the wheel, and talks about the differences between the older and spanking new Fanatec F1 style wheel rim.

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!
