My Custom made Carbon Fiber seats

After many months... I may now finally present to you: the carbon fiber seats that I custom designed and had manufactured for me in Italy. You saw it here first! One of one... my creation. My long time friends know that every car that I have passionately owned, from my Celica GT-S to my Lotus- is to be a visionary. It may take a long time to get something to where I want it but I am a perfectionist at heart and I simply do not settle for mediocrity.. May I present to you : Final Form Lotus. Handmade in England by Lotus- Perfected by me.

If you want to order seats like mine (or other custom made ones to your liking) you can order them through Greg at GRP and enter the discount code "Keleent" at checkout for a discount!

I'll be uploading a youtube video of them within the next couple days (if not today)

Sweet! What set did you order? CF? Fiberglass?



UPDATE!:

I finally had some time to pair my custom carbon fiber seats with these Schroth PROFI II ASM FE 4/5-Point harnesses. 💯♨️♨️‼️🏁These are temporary until I get in some Hans compatible ones but these are also street legal. I still have my 3 point OEM belts in place for non spirited and casual driving. I'm hoping to get some much needed track time by next spring if I have time and when the weather cools down 🏁🏁🏁 !! What are your thoughts on the RED? The new ones I want will be black with yellow lettering. ✔️💛

This was my same question. Not the bolts, but the bumps in the carbon fiber. They look like they would hit your hips in the wrong place.

Also, do the seats hold you any tighter than stock seats? Are they basically the same width? I'd love something a little tighter for myself.

How's the leg support? I have really long legs, and I get tired over long distances or on the track trying to keep my legs upright because they basically don't touch the seats at all, if that makes sense

I'm 5'11 and I bring the seat pretty close up. The end of the seat is near where the seam for the shifter tunel ends
