Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Classic 2 V2 Review

Clubsport Steering Wheel Classic 2 V2

There is not much to say (analyze) about this steering wheel, Like many other products in the Fanatec inventory, this one is a bundle of two products, the ClubSport Wheel Rim Classic 2 and the Clubsport Universal Hub, both specially designed for the Xbox and PC. This rim was made for one purpose in mind, be used for vintage road cars and historic racing cars thanks to the diameter that is perfect for this,  35 cm large. Not sure but I think is the largest rim on the Fanatec ecosystem.

I think the price is overestimated for this rim, I know it was made for a niche but 400$ it’s too much for a rim with a classic design in mind. however the materials are really high in quality, the covered in genuine leather is very smooth and feels very good at touch. Very important for this kind of rims

Games like rFactor, RaceDepartment or even Assetto Corsa have plenty of classic street-type cars or modes perfectly to use with this steering wheel, if you are looking for a racing vintage or classic steering wheel this is a nice option for you, overprice I might say, but what Fanatec product isn’t? They produce high-quality sim racing products but with a price.
