THE B8 - CAR SEAT  

The B8 car seat is Ideal for road and track use in performance saloon cars. The seat excels where support and weight saving are important, along with comfort and convenience for daily driving. Due to its twin moulding construction, it is rigid and strong yet remains lightweight.

The B8 has a carefully contoured shape which supports the body whilst leaving the shoulders free to steer the car unhindered. Its shape is so perfectly moulded to the body that it needs no covering, reducing the overall seat weight and lowering the driving position. The ability of the B8 to run without padding is ideal for an open topped car in a harsh environment. We do however recommend using our thin Dinamica suede covered panel sets for more regular road use.

There are two edge cuts, the B8-44.5 we call “Edges on” meaning the continuous rolled edge at the leg area of the seat remains uncut. This gives a more aesthetically pleasing line to the edge of the seat making it easier to slide in and out of the car. Therefore, if you have the space, we recommend using this model.

If you do not have the space the B8-43 is needed. We call this specification the “Edges off” option. These have the rolled edges at the leg area carefully removed to fit the seat between the gearbox tunnel and the door sill of a restricted width cockpit. This trimmed back option is required to fit the B8 in a Lotus Elise/Exige.

*Fits Elise/Exige cars manufactured prior to 2017 – VIN serial number 1457
