Recaro Introduces Redesigned Sportster GT Seats

New from Recaro – the redesigned Recaro Sportster GT seats. These seats utilize performance ergonomics and excellent body support for a great on-road feel. See more details below.

Official Release:

This seat has a long-standing history as one of the most successful sportive car seats in the world,” says Martin C. Klein, head of Recaro Automotive Seating. At NAIAS 2018, Recaro Automotive Seating will present the redesigned Recaro Sportster GT for today’s top sport luxury automobiles, representing the latest in aftermarket seating technology.

It features a sleek backrest with Recaro’s victory design and uses advanced performance materials ranging from high-grade leather to sport cloth. The hybrid seat design incorporates the strength of a metal base with an ultra-thin reinforced polymer based backrest. The Sportster GT’s lightweight structure provides Recaro’s world-renowned performance ergonomics and excellent body support. On top of that, the seat also features new performance foam materials to ensure that the look and feel meets the on-road performance – already today Recaro’s aftermarket Sportster GT provides a glance into the future of potential OEM seat applications.

The integrated headrest, belt pass-throughs and pronounced bolstering are reminiscent of racing seats. The Recaro Sportster GT will be offered in five options from April 2018: black cloth, three suede options (red, blue & cloud gray) plus a premium leather and carbon weave fabric.
