RECARO - "Purple Drink" - Custom Alcantera Pole Positions by GT Motoring - Pics!

RECARO - "Purple Drink"- Custom Alcantera Pole Position by GT Motoring


One of our customers came to us with a out of the ordinary request. I want purple Recaro Pole Positions for my car. After some searching around for some material samples and getting some options we were able to find some alcantera/ultrasuede fabric that fit the bill. Kevin, the customer also wanted a contrast stitch and Recaro logo to add some contrast to the seats. To add some texture and breathability perforated ultrasuede was used on the center section cushions.

We can't wait to see this set of seats installed and we'll invite the owner to post some pics if possible. Enjoy :tipwink:

We should have another customers done here next week with photos as well. We'll be sure to share those as well!

Interesting color for seats, but stunning! I bet they're buttery smooth to sit in

That was what came to mind at first for us too.... Good thing the seats arent purple velour!


We ended up making this customer a matching shift boot as well to match the seats


Of course the Purple isnt for everyone, but just shows whats possible
