A classic car should be as original and authentic as possible. Any conversions or accessories must remain true to the era of the car's creation. Who better to make seats for your classic car than the company that made the original seats in the first place? RECARO – priceless originality.
The RECARO Classic Pole Position (ABE), Classic LX and LS echo the outstanding design of RECARO seats from the 1980s, making them the perfect complement to classic car interiors. The RECARO seats are the culmination of everything we know today about safe, ergonomic seating. Every RECARO seat fulfills the highest possible standards in craftsmanship, style and individual comfort. All of our seats provide the ideal sitting position for your body, so you can be sure of sharp reactions, powerful performance and confident, safe driving.
"A RECARO seat allows you to use the steering wheel as an actual steering wheel – not a support wheel!" explains rally legend Walter Röhrl. Feel different, drive different!
Walter Röhrl has always been a racing giant. Quite literally! At 6' 4" he certainly lives up to his nickname, "The Tall One". In order to achieve the perfect sitting position, he installed RECARO sports seats in his very first racing cars – a BMW 2002 ti and a Porsche 911 S. Because back then the sporty performance, quality and safety of our seats was as unique as it is today. When it came to choosing his seat, he had just one condition: "It has to be a RECARO!". This was a fortunate decision, for at the 1985 San Remo Rally Walter managed to survive the most serious accident of his career relatively unscathed.
Since the beginning of his career 50 years ago, Walter has always worked closely with RECARO. A friendship to last a lifetime. That's why we're so proud to have Walter on board as a partner for our Classic seats. He's on hand during product development with his advice and assistance and brings a wealth of expertise to the design and upholstery table.
Only RECARO seats have been personally checked by Walter Röhrl and given his approval for their superb characteristics. Our Classic seats are no exception. They are recognizable by the special "Approved by Walter Röhrl" seal.
RECARO design doesn't take its lead from fleeting fashion trends but is shaped by function alone. For years, Frank Beermann's team has been responsible for industrial design.
