(Beverly Hills, CA) – December 2, 2008 – Fanatec®, a leading brand of high-end input devices for game consoles and PCs, today unveiled the Porsche® 911 GT3 RS Racing Wheel for PC and PlayStation® 3. Featuring the best elements of its sister wheels, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Clubsport and the Porsche 911 Carrera, the 911 GT3 RS Racing Wheel truly concentrates on what it takes to help gamers go faster when playing their favorite racing games. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Racing Wheel can now be pre-ordered for $289.95USD at www.FANATEC.com and is expected to ship February 15, 2009.
Made for the racing games enthusiast, this Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH licensed wheel is crafted from genuine Alcantara leather, which is the exact same material used in a real Porsche car. It features an adjustable Force Feedback Drive with a Mabuchi 550 Series motor and a smooth belt drive. With fourteen buttons on the wheel rim, a three-step adjustable sensitivity level, and two additional vibration motors in the wheel, this wired set-up is customizable to fit the preference of any racer!
Big paddle shifters made of stainless steel give you full control and you can upgrade the wheel with optional sequential or 6+1 speed shifters. The revolutionary Clubsport pedals are made of CNC machined aluminum and feature a pressure sensitive “load cell” sensor for the brake which achieves a new level of realism.
Another “world first” is the vibration motor on the brake pedal and the contactless high precision sensors for the adjustable clutch and gas pedals. To complete the package, Fanatec has a line of compatible accessories including the Clubsport Table Clamp, RennSport Wheel Stand, and the RennSport Cockpit, to name a few.
“This wheel is made for the racing enthusiast. No gimmicks and pure performance, just like the real Porsche 911 GT3 RS,” said Thomas Jackermeier, CEO, Endor AG. “You will run out of excuses with this one!”
