The Fanatec Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3 is now available for preorders across all regions and is set to be commence deliveries in Q3 2022.
The much anticipated Fanatec Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3 is in a class of it’s own. This wheel is a collaboration between the motorsports arm of BMW. For the first time in the history of sim racing, a steering wheel developed for both a real race car and for sim racing. When mounted to a compatible Fanatec wheelbase, the wheel uses the Fanatec software. However, when attached to the 2022 BMW M4 GT3, this wheel uses CAN bus as a protocol communication medium. This is the pinnacle of realism in sim racing.
The pricing of this does not come cheap. Set at a steep $1,499.95 USD at the time of writing, this wheel is created for real sim racing enthusiasts who are looking for an experience closest to the reality of driving a real GT3 sports car. If you are looking for something cheaper, we definitely recommend the CSL Elite Steering Wheel McLaren GT3 V2. However, if you would like to preorder it now, please follow the link below.

This is not a replica. Developed in conjunction with BMW M Motorsport, the Podium Steering Wheel M4 GT3 is used as the actual wheel for the 2022 BMW M4 GT3 race car. This is the closest step to reality for die hard sim racing fans.
The Fanatec Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3 is curated with all the important features you would find in a high-end steering wheel.
Developed together with BMW M Motorsport, the Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3 is the wheel made for the 2022 BMW M4 GT3 Race Car. This means that there is zero compromise when it comes to the durability of the product. Constructed with eight layers of carbon fiber on its body, the wheel weighs in at a sturdy 3lbs (1.4kg). This will be the only wheel you need for GT3 racing on your Fanatec wheelbase.
Fully homologated for GT3 racing, this wheel features a wide array of 12 front-facing buttons plus 2 more at the rear which are perfectly placed for quick access. Dual action (push/pull) magnetic shifters allow for accurate upshift and downshift on the same paddle, or they can function as four separate inputs. The grip-mounted rotary encoders have a strong, positive click, using Hall sensors for reliable precision. The buttons are programmable and can function as RevLEDs or tire slip indicators which is particularly useful in your peripheral vision.
