Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Porsche 918 RSR Review

Porsche 918 RSR 

This steering wheel is a curious case or a mystery ( solved ) case, Let me explain myself, this rim looks like a 2020 rim but actually is one of the oldest products produce by Fanatec, is form early 2014, yet looks newer than many rims from the Fanatec’s inventory.  I really enjoy that, because this rim looks and feel like a real race version of the latest Porsche supercar: the Porsche 918 RSR made with high performing materials like carbon fiber or Aluminum.

This steering wheel is a very authentic replica of the steering wheel used in one of the most powerful race cars in the world, the Porsche 918 RSR race car. It comes from factory with real carbon fiber, brushed aluminum, beautiful brown leather, and integrated shift light indicators.

It’s one of my favorite rim in the Fanatec Inventory, I’m not sure but the rev meter bar integrated in the top section of the rim must be one of the first rim showing telemetry data this way.
