Fanatec CSL Elite WRC Rally Wheel

Fanatec CSL Elite WRC Rally Wheel – Available Now

Fanatec is back at it again, with the launch of its brand new Fanatec CSL Elite WRC Rally Wheel which comes as a result of a partnership with the FIA World Rally Championship.


The CSL Elite Steering Wheel WRC is officially licensed by the World Rally Championship (WRC) and will be used in official WRC Esports competitions.


The wheel features Fanatec’s RevStripe™​ and integrated three-digit LED screen which shows useful information with compatible games, it also provides access to the Tuning Menu which allows you to make tweaks to settings during live gameplay.


This new WRC Rally Wheel features brushed aluminum spokes and a genuine Alcantara® grip with orange stitching and detachable paddles. The wheel also features Fanatec’s new tool-free Simplified Quick Release Adapter design.

There is no clamping bolt required with this new design. The improved Simplified QRA clamps easily to the steering shaft by hand, without the need for tools. The new design is also removable and can be replaced with the ClubSport Quick Release Adapter.


The 300 mm rim diameter is suitable for many vehicle types and is lightweight and suitable for the quick inputs required in rally driving.


The CSL Elite Steering Wheel WRC looks great with its tire tread graphic and bright orange accents on the paddles and stitching. The paddles can be removed, allowing clearance for the optional ClubSport Static Shifter Paddles, which may be more comfortable for rally driving applications.


The wheel comes with an Xbox-style button layout that can easily be replaced with the included racing-style buttons if so desired.


The wheel is compatible with the Podium, Clubsport & CSL Elite wheelbases, it also comes with enhanced Xbox compatibility due to new electronics inside the wheel, making any connected wheelbase compatible both with the current Xbox One and the upcoming Xbox Series X.


The Fanatec CSL WRC Rally Wheel is available now, selling for just 199,95 Euros/Dollars on the Fanatec website.
