To mark the 50th anniversary of its first shell seat in 2017, Recaro Automotive introduced the street-legal Recaro Pole Position SL.

A special limited-edition model for the aftermarket, it combines cleanly designed and distinctive sportiness with high-quality manufacturing and craftsmanship—making for sharp-looking interiors and the finest in dynamic driving pleasure. Its slim, one-piece seat shell of glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) provides optimal lateral and shoulder support. The headrest and side bolsters of the handsomely sporty seat are covered in carbon-look fine leather, while black-stitched bright green leather bands accent the seat’s contours.

Deep black Dinamica microfiber fabric covers the seat cushion and backrest, ensuring a pleasant feel and optimum grip. Recaro fans will particularly appreciate special touches such as the embroidered Recaro logo, an elegant aluminum tag bearing the seat’s serial number, and a certificate of manufacture. Production is limited to only 300 units globally. The Recaro Pole Position SL will be available starting January 2018.
