Sparco DTM Carbon-Leather-Alcantara Fixed Back Seats


Up for sale are my two Sparco DTM fixed back seats. The seats are dry carbon construction with Italian leather/Alcantara and “silver” aka light grey stitching (like the BMW performance seats).



About the Sparco DTM Seats:

These seats were part of a limited production run collaboration between Sparco and Speedware Motorsports. The seats were offered with green stitching + RS logo, orange stitching + RS logo, or “silver” stitching with no logo. The seats were targeted at the Porsche GT3 RS and AMG black series crowd initially. Because of the limited quantity, Sparco did not pay to have the FIA testing/approval done. That said, the construction of the DTM seat is identical to their carbon fiber FIA seats. These seats are perfect for track enthusiasts who want the performance of fixed back seats while maintaining the high end luxury look/materials.

The DTM seats are my favorite for a balance of motorsport and luxury. They match the interior perfectly and look incredible in the car. The Italian leather is smooth like BMW leather, the Alcantara is like butter, and the “silver” lt. grey stitching ties in really well with brushed aluminum trim. The decision to sell is because I am looking at going with a narrower HANS racing seat set-up.

Weight:

Even with the Italian Leather and Alcantara, the seats are extremely light at just under 15lbs weighed on my Palouse shipping scale.

History on My DTM's

I purchased the seats new from Tony at Speedware about a year ago. One of the seats has never been used and was only un-packaged for photos. The other seat I mounted into my M coupe and used for 40 miles (no track time). Both seats are in excellent condition.

The seat I installed has some imperfections from mounting that are show below. The photos are taken very close up highlighting the imperfections. All but one of the imperfections are covered by the mounting side brackets when the seat is installed, so they won’t be seen. The imperfection that is not covered by mounting hardware is a faint scratch just above where the side mounts. This scratch can be seen in certain lighting, but when this side of the seat is mounted toward the transmission tunnel the scratch is not see at all.

Retail Pricing Info:

These seats originally retailed for $3,000 each, $6,000 per pair. Speedware now has them on in-stock closeout for $2200 each, $4,500 per pair. They only have the green and orange stitching available now.

Here is the link: http://www.speedwaremotorsports.com/...at-0099amgapnr


My Price:

I am motivated to sell these as a pair and offering way below what I paid. I am looking to get $2700.00 for the pair.

If two people are interested in buying one seat at the same time the pricing would be $1325 for the seat that has been mounted and $1375 for the seat that has not been mounted.

Pricing includes Pay Pal fees, but shipping is on the buyer. If you need a shipping quote, PM your zip code to me.

Payment can be made by Pay Pal or cash in person.

I have 100% Positive feedback here and on eBay under the same user name.

Thank you for your interest!
