Fanatec Reveals Black Friday Deals and Gran Turismo DD Pro (Updated)

Sim hardware manufacturer Fanatec has revealed multiple Black Friday deals for 2021, and revealed their newest product: the Fanatec Gran Turismo DD Pro for the Playstation 5.

Black Friday 2021 is coming up very soon, and as always, companies will be vying for your money with enticing deals. Fanatec has announced deals on select products which go live on November 26th, and include the most recent edition of their budget P1 wheel, a 33% discount on an existing wheel, and add-ons for their CSL pedals.

CSL Steering Wheel P1 V2
The feature deal is the second version of the P1 wheel. The P1 looks similar in form to the popular WRC wheel that Fanatec offers at the lower budget end of their product line, but without the WRC branding. At €99,95 / $99.95 (a savings of €/$20), this looks to be a perfect entry wheel for those getting started in the Fanatec ecosystem.

Buy from Fanatec.com for EUR 99,95*

CSL Steering Wheel R300
Also featured in the deals is the CSL Steering Wheel R300, which combines the CSL Universal Hub with a 300mm diameter wheel. This is the biggest savings offered so far, with Fanatec taking €/$100 off the regular price and offering the R300 at €199,95 / $199.95.

Buy from Fanatec.com for EUR 199,95*

Two more offerings at the lower end of the price range in Fanatec's lineup are the CSL pedal upgrades currently on sale for Black Friday. The new load cell kit for the CSL pedals is on sale for €119,95 / $119.95, and takes the €79,95 / $79.95 CSL Pedals from a two-pedal set to three pedals including a load cell equipped brake pedal. You can also upgrade the pedal faces with the Fanatec CSL Pedals Tuning Kit, which will be on sale on the 26th for €34,95 / $34.95.

Lastly, a small note at the bottom of the sale page added simply "Stay tuned for a special product launch… #feelyourline". For now we can only speculate on what this might be, but be sure to check back with RD for more on this as details are revealed.

Would be nice making the Wheel compatible with a DD1/DD2 so we can switch from PC to PS5 when we go from ACC to GT7 ? Can't be to difficult. Greed might set us back though.
I'm wondering how much the standalone wheelbase will cost...
850€ for the 8 Nm package.
80€ pedals = 760€
30€ table clamp = 730€
480€ for the pc/Xbox csl DD 8 Nm

Makes the gt7 rim = 250€...
250€ for that toyish rim? Meh...
Sure it has a lot of "buttons" but it really is a step down imo...
If it would have magnetic, adjustable shifter paddles, I might like it but these paddles look just bad :(

So imo that rim is about 130-199€ compared to other fanatec rims.

Question is:
Will the standalone ps5 csl DD cost 499€ oder 599€...
Site has just gone live and the black friday deals are now available.

Got the P1 rim I wanted to compliment my Mclaren v2. Same price as second hand ones on ebay so very happy with that.
Luckily checked in the middle of the night/early morning and saw the deals go live. I picked up the $99 P1 rim, CSL load cell kit and tuning kit. The load cell kit has an availability of early February? Did anyone get a sooner availability? I felt I jumped on it as soon the deals went live...
Not sure about the load cell kit - I think I was within the first 10mins of the EU site going live and the P1 rim will dispatch 9th December. I definitely saw other products were on a longer lead time though.
