Cobra Imola kevlar seat

SOLD


Nice seat, very lightweight kevlar construction. Wider than a standard race seat for those who need more room.
This seat was for the passenger side of my 911 to occasionally take students for rides at the track. When not being used it sat in my trailer. However, it's been in my basement for quite a few years while I've done a lot of work to the 911, including modifying the cage and now the seat is too wide to fit. There is no date code on the seat The date code label shows FIA time is expired so it would probably only qualify for racing with a back brace, but would be great for DE or street.

Ideally I'd find someone who wants to trade their traditional width race seat like a Sparco Evo for this seat. Or sell to someone within driving distance to avoid having to ship the seat. $450 without shipping.

Correction, the seat does have the FIA label on it, I couldn't see it with the seat loosely bolted into the car.

Really good seat. I used to have a Imola S about 10 years ago and it was a really nice seat. I currently have a Cobra Suzuka and i've been really pleased with the top quality of the Cobra race seats.

The GT size offered here is a REAL benefit because I think most people fall into that larger width GT category. I'm a pretty slim guy with 32" waist (10 years ago) and the Imola S was a TIGHT fit in the hips for me. I can't imagine too many other people fitting into the narrow seat very well.

I have a seat box that will fit the seat if you end up shipping it. It's a Cobra Suzuka seat box so it should definitely fit your Imola seat.

Thanks Kevin. I’ve even considered modifying the cage side bar to fit this seat in, but decided that was nuts when there are other seats out there that will fit.

I have a stock sized Cobra in one of my storage units.

Thanks Byron. I’m looking for something a bit newer and in almost new shape.

Can’t believe there’s been zero interest in this seat.
