Fanatec, a leading manufacturer of high-end input devices for game consoles and PCs, today announced that the Forza Motorsport CSR Wheel, CSR Elite Pedals and CSR Shifter set are now available for pre-order. Fanatec has partnered with Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios to develop the Forza Motorsport CSR Wheel for hardcore racing fans who demand nothing less than perfection on the Xbox 360.

Making its debut at the 2011 E3 Expo in Los Angeles CA driving Forza Motorsport 4, the Forza Motorsport CSR wheel takes the Fanatec line in a new direction with a different look and feel to the familiar Porsche 911 line up of products. Developed by Fanatec in collaboration with Turn 10 Studios, new features are set to provide the ultimate sim racing experience on the Xbox 360 in Forza Motorsport 4.

Known for their "Clubsport pedals" and in conjunction with the release of the Forza Motorsport CSR, Fanatec introduces the CSR Elite Pedals. A completely new design with improved ergonomics, they make for the perfect match for the Forza Motorsport CSR & CSR Elite wheels.

The CSR Elite Pedals are the most affordable set on the market that use load cell brake technology. With a load cell, muscle memory is used versus positional memory as the load cell is engaged. Load cell brakes are used to simulate the feel of a real world car. With a vast array of adjustability , you can make the CSR Elites load cell brake go from something similar to a street car, up to a very stiff racing brake.

A great wheel needs an equally impressive pedal and shifter set and Fanatec delivers just that. The Forza Motorsport CSR wheel, CSR Elite pedals and the CSR Shifter Set continue that tradition and Fanatec continues to be the only company that brings you a quality wheel, pedal and shifter set for the Forza Motorsport franchise and the XBox 360. This time you'll be able to do it with official Forza branding and a list of new features.

Key features for the wheel, pedals and shifter include:

Forza Motorsport CSR Wheel:

  • Authentic motorsport inspired design with premium aluminum wheel and Alcantara grip.

  • Force Feedback is handled by a Powerful Mabuchi RS550 Motor that's used in RC cars.
