No sporty or customised car is complete without a good set of seats and Recaro has consistently been the seat manufacturer of choice for most car enthusiasts.
The German brand, which originally made its name building car bodies, switched to seats in the 1960s and hasn’t looked back.
Today, they not only sell their seats direct to car owners, but also supply seats to many car manufacturers.
To celebrate 50 years of Recaro automotive seat manufacturing, Recaro has produced a limited-edition office chair – known as the ‘Recaro Office Chair’ (seen above).
The design was inspired by the first Recaro racing shell seat and is limited to only 500 pieces.
The price? $8,500 AUD!
The seat is equipped with state-of-the-art technical features, and is trimmed in distinctive upholstery in a houndstooth pattern, while the side bolsters feature high-quality perforated leather. – Recaro
The special Recaro chair also gets a rally-style “50 Years” emblem on the headrest.
