RECARO Automotive Seating Celebrates World Debut of RECARO Podium at Essen Motor Show

Setting the stage for a world first: RECARO Automotive Seating is presenting the RECARO Podium performance shell seat at the 2019 Essen Motor Show. As the newest innovation from the world’s leading manufacturer of performance car seats, the RECARO Podium is the first automotive seat approved for both street use and racetrack deployment. With its return to the Essen Motor Show, RECARO also has further highlights in store for its fans at Stand 3A47 in Hall 3, including the brand-new ultralight version of the RECARO P 1300 GT racing shell as well as a wide-ranging portfolio of current RECARO performance seats both for passenger vehicles and for race cars. 

Essen, November 29, 2019 – Ultimate performance on the road and racetrack, with iconic design and the finest craftsmanship: having already been intrigued by the first photos from the “Erlkönig”, the fans of RECARO are now invited to come test out the new seat at the Essen Motor Show. The RECARO Podium is the world’s first performance seat to hold both a general operating permit (the German ABE) and an 8855-1999 homologation certificate from the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), meaning it’s approved both for motorsports and for the retrofitting of sporty performance vehicles. 

For passionate drivers who value superb dynamics, outstanding feedback and sporty driving performance, RECARO is bringing to Essen a stunning selection of current performance seats in addition to the groundbreaking RECARO Podium. These include the special Nürburgring Edition of the innovative Sportster CS lightweight shell seat, the Pole Position (ABE) performance shell seat, and the Cross Sportster CS, which was specially designed for comfortable access to SUVs and off-road vehicles.

Alongside the new RECARO Podium, pro racers visiting the RECARO stand in Essen will also find the RECARO P1300 GT LW, a brand-new ultralight version of our premium seat for GT and touring-car racing. For races with frequent driver changes, the RECARO Pro Racer SPG is the first choice of many top drivers, thanks to its FIA homologated flexible adapter for easy fore-aft adjustment.

At the RECARO stand in Essen, the RECARO Performance Challenge will let true motorsports fans prove their mettle in a racing simulator featuring an original RECARO racing shell, not only to achieve the best time on the virtual Nürburgring racetrack, but also to win a passenger ride in a race car on the real Nordschleife.
