A thoroughbred racing shell licensed for a sporty ride on the open road. Tried and trusted by the world’s most famous secret agent! The RECARO Pole Position (ABE) is the ultimate track-road crossover seat. With a one-piece shell made of carbon aramid (CFRP/AFRP) or glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) and flawless ergonomics, no wonder it has a long-standing track record as one of club motorsport’s most popular racing shells. Many exclusive car manufacturers upgrade their top performance models with the Pole Position.

Q: Where can I try sitting in a RECARO seat?
You can try out RECARO seats in our retail store in Kirchheim/Teck, or at any authorized RECARO dealer or service partner. Prior to visiting an authorized RECARO dealer or service partner, you should contact them to inquire whether they have the seat that interests you on hand for testing. You can find an authorized RECARO dealer or service partner in your area by visiting the Service page of the RECARO website.
Q: Where can I find an ABE for RECARO seat type XY?

Q: Is a "TÜV" approval necessary when installing a RECARO seat?

TÜV-registration is mandatory in case of imperative changes (i.e. modifications for disabled persons).
