This is not a replica.
Developed together with BMW M Motorsport, the Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3 is the actual wheel made for the 2022 BMW M4 GT3 race car.

The first of its kind.
It doesn’t get more authentic than this. For the first time in sim racing history, a steering wheel has been developed for both a real race car and for sim racing. Your search for realism ends here.

This is the real deal.
What you buy on this page is 100% what we designed for BMW M Motorsport. We manufacture the steering wheel for every BMW M4 GT3, and you can own one too.

More than meets the eye.
The M4 GT3 wheel is covered in features, some of which are not obvious at a glance, such as dual-action magnetic shifters, dual-analogue clutch paddles with adjustable travel, two extra rear-mounted buttons, and the D-pad hidden under the BMW logo.

Race-optimised inputs.
An array of 12 front-facing buttons plus 2 more at the rear are perfectly placed for quick access. Dual-action (push/pull) magnetic shifters allow upshifting and downshifting 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 precision and reliability.

Custom illumination.
The RGB LEDs behind all 12 front-facing buttons plus backlit multi-position switches means you’ll always find the right input in the heat of competition. Programmable via CAN bus in the real car, and via FanaLab on your PC, the backlit buttons can even function as RevLEDs or tyre slip indicators.
