1983/84 – RECARO-Seat LS
Enhancing a proven product: The next RECARO seat range was launched in 1983/84. The then leading RECARO "IdealSeat-LS" was revised with the aspiration of providing automotive seating culture appropriate for people in the modern era. With the newly named RECARO- Seat LS, the company now offered more comfort down to the last detail. This was ensured by features like loosely padded backrest strips. It remained possible to customize the length of the seat surface. Moreover, optional seat heating provided comfort for sporting driving in winter as well. The new features of the next RECARO Sport Seat generation were the backrest adjustment lever on both sides and the backrest folding mechanism.
All models of the 1984 generation received especially breathable fabrics and padding underneath for climate control in the new design. The firm upholstery conformed with current ergonomic research and years of experience by RECARO on relieving the body's muscular system – the "ergonomics" rooted in RECARO's DNA. The seats offered every driver a wholesome level of firmness that should not lead to fatigue, even on long drives. This should support the driver's reaction time and efficiency. Initially, completely new computer-calculated seat structures made of "super high strength" steel in RECARO seats were not visible to the customer, but essential for increasing passive safety – a good example of the "safety" deposited in the DNA.
