Fanatec F1 Esports V2 Steering Wheel

Fanatec F1 Esports V2 Steering Wheel

Fanatec has just unveiled the second version of their F1 Esports steering wheel, which is available to order now at a price of 269.95€.

Unlike its predecessor, the second version of the popular F1 Wheel is equipped with two times three additional LEDs, which can be used, for example, for the use of ABS/TC effects or flags in the game.

Also upgraded were the shift paddles, which are now equipped with magnets, which should provide a much better shift feel compared to the previous model. In addition, it is now possible to upgrade to the APM (Podium Advanced Paddle Module).
