The new Recaro Podium performance shell at the IAA 2021 in Munich

Whether experiencing the road like never before or red-lining it on the race track: the new Recaro Podium – the world’s first and lightest performance shell certified for street and track use – brings a unique driving feel to both worlds. Visitors to the IAA 2021 in Munich can stop by the Motorworld joint booth in hall B4 from September 7 to 12, 2021, to experience the shell first-hand and test-seat it.

Recaro Automotive, the world's leading manufacturer of premium vehicle seats, is presenting its latest high-end dynamic-sport product in a black and red Alcantara leather combination at IAA Mobility 2021. At the Motorworld joint booth Recaro offers the international audience the opportunity to test-seat the ultra-light shell in detail.

An exclusive selection of matching merchandising accessories and textiles from Recaro Automotive's Dynamic Collection rounds off the brand presentation at the IAA. With the Dynamic Collection, Recaro Automotive is presenting attractive articles that pick up on the stylish silhouette of the Recaro Podium. The Recaro Automotive Collection is available alongside other lifestyle products such as office chairs in the official fan store at https://shop.recaro-automotive.com.

The Recaro Podium envelops the body and protects it like a second skin. This approach is also apparent visually, with an innovative shell that is visible from all sides and has a pronounced contour that hews close to the body. In an innovative manufacturing process, the seat specialist combines high-strength, ultra-light high-tech foam in the shell core with a front and back shell made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP). This makes the Recaro Podium the world's lightest retrofit seat with a general operating permit (ABE) for use in the area of road traffic regulations (StVO) and homologation 8855-1999 of the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) for racing competitions: without seat cover, the Recaro Podium weighs 4.3 kg.
