The Gran Turismo DD Pro is out now and has been in high demand since Fanatec had first revealed the impressive direct drive machinery.
A collaboration between Fanatec and Gran Turismo™, this wheel offers revolutionary performance and astounding design that will impress any sim racing enthusiasts. This wheel combines the power of the PlayStation®5 console performance with Fanatec Direct Drive technology for the smoothest and most dynamic force feedback sensations.
Unless you already have a set of pedals, we highly recommend the Gran Turismo DD Premium Bundle as it comes with the Boost Kit 180 (8 Nm), CSL Pedals and the CSL Pedals Load Cell Kit which greatly enhances the overall sim racing experience.
Gran Turismo Steering Wheel
The 280mm diameter round shape Gran Turismo Steering Wheel included in the bundle is suitable for a wide variety of vehicles available in Gran Turismo. The tactile rubber grip and ergonomic paddle shifters will make you feel very much in control of any vehicle you drive. Additionally, the OLED display and diffused RevLED strip which offers useful visual information while driving and operating the Fanatec Tuning menu. This is an incredible wheel that performs well, whether you’re looking to tour, race or drift.
Gran Turismo DD Wheel Base
The Gran Turismo DD Wheel Base is an incredible direct drive wheel officially licensed for PlayStation®5 consoles and PlayStation®4 consoles. The wheel base features a direct-drive system that delivers instant, detailed force feedback where the track and car detail amplified. Without doubt, this is by far one of the best wheel bases that’s available for the PlayStation consoles.
As the Gran Turismo DD Pro is a direct drive wheel, there is no compromise in power as the steering wheel is directly mounted to the motor shaft. This means that there’s no belt or gear to dilute the feeling of the force feedback. Out of the box, the Gran Turismo DD Pro comes with the included Boost Kit 180 which features an additional boost by 3 Nm. On paper, this improvement might not seem to be much but when you experience 5 Nm compared to 8 Nm, the differences are evident.
The included Fanatec CSL Pedals is a remarkable pedal set that features heavy steel construction that is built to last. The stiffer spring on the brake combined with the PU foam damper provides a realistic progressive brake feel, which replicates the performance of a real life sports car. Both the pedal and throttle feature a Hall-effect sensor which measures the pedal position using magnets. This provides greater accuracy, consistent performance and no wear on the sensors. With the Gran Turismo DD Pro Premium Bundle, the CSL Pedals come with an included CSL Pedals Load Cell Kit. The kit measures pressure rather than travel, meaning that the pedal feels more like the braking in a real life car.

The Gran Turismo DD Pro offers superior compatibility across most steering wheels from Fanatec. This includes all Fanatec Podium Steering Wheels, Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheels, CSL Steering Wheels, Pedals and Shifters. Hence, if you are already in the Fanatec ecosystem, you can dynamically change out your wheel or pedal to your preference. Furthermore, this product is fully compatible on PC, PlayStation®4 consoles and PlayStation®5. If you wish to use this on the Xbox, you will require an Xbox licensed wheel rim (We highly recommend the Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2.5 X).
