The latest model of the series of Porsche branded racing wheels is the finest model so far and marks a new level of realism for simracing equipment. It uses 100% the same ALCANTARA leather as in the real 911 GT2 car, carbon fiber shifter paddles and pedals made of CNC machined aluminum.

The ClubSport pedals with its pressure sensitive brake with ABS vibration gives you almost an unfair advantage over anybody else.
