RECARO Classic Seats.

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!". That meant in his private and classic cars, too.

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. RECARO is the obvious choice for those who want the certainty of a seat's protection when driving at the limit.

The original ones

RECARO Classic Seats.

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?

The RECARO seats presented here are the culmination of everything we know today about safe, ergonomic seating. Every RECARO seat fulfills the highest possible standards in workmanship, 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!


When manufacturing our seats, we make safety our number one priority. Safety determines the quality of every seat and is nowhere more important than in the seat's inner workings.

The steel frame at the seat's core, the spring elements, the special, energy-absorbing steel backrest, the seat frame that remains rigid even in lateral directions, the strong side bolsters and the extreme sturdiness of the entire  structure that can absorb forces without splintering: these are all crucial safety features for the driver. Not forgetting, of course, the fully upholstered head rests that are height- and tilt-adjustable.

Ergonomics and Comfort.

Our upholstery is designed in accordance with the latest scientific research into relieving muscular stress. That's why RECARO seats aren't too soft; instead, they provide the body with a fine-tuned firmness that won't tire the driver during long drives. "I don't need a sofa in my car – I need a seat that is comfortable enough for long drives but still gives me excellent feedback from the car," says Walter Röhrl.

We have further enhanced climate comfort by using effective material, structured cover fabric and a thick woolen fleece layer that absorbs moisture. Our super-breathable fabrics and base upholstery help to "air condition" your body.
