CSL Seat now available for pre-order + surprise
Fanatec CSL Seat that we wrote about in late November can now actually be pre-ordered. Originally it was said that it would be available for pre-order the week after news broke out, but for unknown reasons it was delayed for a little while. It is available both in EU and US online stores along with detailed specifications. Thomas is saying that the fist shipments will actually arrive before Christmas.
Fanatec also released a high quality video, showing their new cockpit from various view points and demonstrating its adjustability options, which there are many.
But wait, that is not all! Maybe the most interesting part of the news that was released today is the fact that CSL Seat photos and the video show the long, long anticipated Clubsport Shifter mounted to it. It is quite easy to confirm that it indeed is the Clubsport Shifter, because it is very similar to what was shown on the prototype photo that Thomas posted in March 2012. The final product looks much more refined thanks to its anodized black aluminum finish. This must mean that its release day is finally close and all we can hope is that its design has matured like a good wine. In case you do not remember any more - initial specifications for the Clubsport Shifter were revealed in summer of 2010.
I hope we will soon receive more information about the new shifter, so make sure you come back for more news.
