The racing simulation specialist Fanatec has developed the steering wheel for the M4 GT3 together with BMW – it is also available to computer gamers.
Those who find a real BMW M4 GT3 too expensive to buy and maintain can now make do with the coupe’s racing steering wheel: Racing game developer Fanatec has developed a version of the steering wheel that can be connected to the PC or a Sony Playstation. So if you switch from the computer to a real M4 GT3, or vice versa, you shouldn’t notice any difference in terms of the steering wheel.
The basic construction is also eight-layer carbon.
Can be used in the game and in the car
Fanatec was involved in the development of the BMW racing steering wheel from the very beginning. It is, of course, fully homologated for motorsport. Its base is an eight-layer carbon construction, emblazoned with twelve illuminated pushbuttons – two more pushbuttons are located on the back. There are also thumb controls on the right and left. The center BMW logo is surrounded by three rotary switches, and two magnetically actuated carbon shift paddles peek out from behind the steering wheel on the right and left. A control pad is hidden under the BMW logo itself.
