Fanatec recently revealed photos and information regarding its new Formula Rim, available separately as an add-on only for the Forza Motorsport CSR Elite wheel. The rim will be available in the third quarter of 2012 and will sell for 179,95€ (inclusive VAT) in the EU and $179.95 USD (excl. sales tax) in the USA.
The Formula Rim features the same amount of buttons as the original wheel rim plus an additional 4-way joystick. Both joysticks have the same function on Xbox and PS3 but on PC it can be mapped with different functions. The grips are made with artificial leather which is easy to clean and feel great.
According to Fanatec’s Thomas’ blog post, the Formula Rim is the only additional wheel rim planned for the CSR Elite at this point. They are now shifting focus to make additional wheel rims for the ClubSport wheel.
