Description:

UPDATED WITH CORRECT MODEL INFORMATION

 

I have a pair of barely used BF Torino front seats, with matching rear seat covers, which I removed from my 1974 Turbo for the sake of authenticity when I found a pair of Rentrop seats in Germany.  These are high quality new production seats in the style of early 70's Recaros manufactured by a highly regarded shop in Torino, Italy.   They have adapter plates for mounting to the OEM seat track holes on 2002's.  The seats have their own seat tracks with a towel bar release, bypassing the stock 2002 paddle.  Seat back dump is by another towel bar on the back of the seats. 

 

The seats are covered in black vinyl with basketweave style perforated inserts. 

 

New price from BF Torino is 1514.36 EUR ($1728 at current exchange rates) including shipping from Italy for the front seats alone.

These are popular with the early Porsche 911 crowd, too, but I wanted to give my people a chance first...

 

DM with questions.  Local pickup (Ventura County, California) is the most practical.

Very cool. Can't quite make out in the pics-- is the center section perforated or more of a true basketweave?

Thanks, Michael

If you asked me, I'd have said perforated (style), but on close inspection, they are actually basketweave.  It's a subtle imprint...hopefully my close up will post well.

 

Thanks for asking!

Went to the BF Torino website and these seem like the LeMans, not the Nuremberg R? Either way the fronts are about 700 Euro each including shipping, so this is a good deal for someone who wants the matching backseat for 'free'.

 

Yep. Just priced these out at ~$1500 shipped to the USA, brand new.

You're definitely correct.  The LeMans have the seat recline hardware, and the Nurburgring R's are fixed buckets.  My bad.  I'll edit the title.

I just updated my listing with the price for these new from the factory. 

 

It works out to EUR 1514 shipping to the US for the two front seats with rails and adaptor plates.  $1728 at current exchange rates.  Plus the cost of matching cover for the stock rear 2002 seat--I have no idea what they charge for that, or if my rear cover was custom fabricated by a local shop using BF Torino leatherette.

Nothing yet... Still have to pull the trigger on new carpet and probably door panels too. The interior is currently an ivory color, so the seats alone would look out of place.

Esty is great for carpet. Last I saw, black interior panels are available from BMW for a price...
