Sport S

Starts at $1395

The first and most famous classic sport seat of the late 60’s and early 70’s was the Recaro Ideal. Featured in the Porsches and BMW and later on in various German sport coupes, this seat has made history.
GTS Classics is proud to present our version of that seat. We went as far as reproducing the shape of the foam and have made molds for it to ensure that each seat has the exact shape and form. Unlike the original, our seat are made out of square steel tubing.
We offer an option so that the seat back tilts more forward (due to a different hinge mechanism and location) for better access to the rear, but we also offer tilting brackets to lift the complete seat, like the originals did.
Available in all the classic sport seat configurations of that period.
GTS Classics can help you get your custom Sport S seat in the color and the configuration you want. 
Adjustable headrests are available but we are happy to use your OEM headrests and recover them to match the new seats.Even the BMW E 9 coupe headrest can be made to fit with our seats. 
This seat is handmade with the highest quality and craftsmanship right here in the USA.
