Detroit, Michigan, January 19, 2018. – “The psychology of gaining confidence for performance driving starts with perfect seating,” says Martin C. Klein, head of RECARO Automotive Seating. “RECARO shell seats are a perfect match for performance cars that offer a thrilling, but controlled and yet surprisingly comfortable driving experience.”

The Pole Position SL fits like a glove and provides direct feedback from the road. Hence, top of the line performance cars can benefit from the knowledge gained in more than 50 years of shell seat development at RECARO – for aftermarket as well as for OEM applications.

This purebred performance seat is shaped for sharp-looking interiors and the finest in dynamic driving pleasure. Its slim, one-piece seat shell is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) and provides perfect lateral and shoulder support in exceptional lightweight design: The shell weighs approx. 7.0 kg (without sidemount and base frame), its carbon derivate just 4.5 kg – which makes it the lightest street legal shell seat globally.

The headrest and side bolsters of the handsomely sporty seat are covered in carbon-looking fine leather, while black-stitched luminous green leather stripes accent the seat’s contours. Deep black Dinamica microfiber fabric covers the seat cushion and backrest, ensuring pleasant feel and optimum grip.
The model, which is limited to 300 pieces, distinguishes itself through unique RECARO styling elements, such as an embroidered logo and an elegant aluminum plaque with the seat’s serial number. Despite its SOP in January 2018, only a small number of Pole Position SL seats are still available.
