This office chair, converted from a real Ferrari F430 Scuderia 16M is one of the rarest seats we have ever offered. This is a black and red leather model with contrast stitching (red on the black leather, black on the red leather), and has a new radical shape and design. Although it looks strange to have the cut out area around your kidneys and the opening between your knees, this ergonomic change from Ferrari has proven to be one of their most comfortable seats yet! The entire rear shell and side trim is clear coated real carbon fiber. The headrest has an embossed prancing horse logo on it and just below it an opening for shoulder racing belts.
This is an authentic and original seat removed from a very rare and special edition new F430 Scuderia 16M at dealer delivery (seems the car's owner didn't care for the color combo once the car came in and new replacement seats were ordered before the car was delivered to him). Only 499 of these cars were made worldwide!
The seat base is an average width with a deep and comfortable back, and this sculpted design fits any modern office. The seatback tilt can be adjusted with a few turns of the carbon fiber knob on the side of the seat. Your order also includes a custom base color of your choice and integrated arm rests. We can also do an authentic Scuderia factory paint option or an Italian theme.
How Each Chair Is Built
Each chair built is unique, the metal base and frame are actually painted separately for each order with a professional automotive quality paint job in a deep, high gloss metallic paint. Your price includes a custom color of your choice. Match it to your existing car's paint, a trim color in your office or anything else you desire. We only need a paint sample or paint code to finish your chair. We always have a few metallic silver and metallic black bases in stock for rush orders, for the custom paint there is about a 3 week processing time.
The mechanics of the bases are a Synchro knee-tilter from Global's Ride collection. They are a full metal base and frame with sculpted sport wheels. The smooth synchronous tilting action maintains constant contact and support for your body in all postures. There are sculpted shift levers at the side of the seat to control the synchro-tilt mechanism and seat height. The rotating pivot arms are height adjustable.
How Seats Are Acquired
Our line of custom made of seats come from actual exotic sports cars and racecars. We find late model race conversions and parts cars and acquire the seats from around the world. Once we receive a new seat, it is disassembled, the leather is cleaned and conditioned, the unnecessary hardware is removed and a custom bracket is created to place the seat in the optimal position.
SEAT CONDITION = NEW
Because Leather has natural markings, and these seats do come from a pre-owned vehicle, some wear on the seat is to be expected. We have implemented a rating system to more accurately describe each chairs condition.
NEW: removed from car at dealer/shop before any use (common for race conversions)
10/10: may have been used for a brief period of time, no wear marks or defects, still looks "new"
9.5/10: may have a small scratch in leather surface at a non central location. Common from bumping the back or side during removal from the vehicle. many times the seats are such a tight factory fit that the base slides along the carpet and can scratch the leather surface
9/10: may have a small scratch in the leather in a more central location (seat base, back or headrest)
8.5/10: some breaking in of the leather surface, may have some discoloration in threads (common for brightly colored threads), or more prominent scratches
8/10: more pronounced breaking in of leather surface including some minor stretching of leather in high traffic areas
<8/10: see individual notes. Most of these are from the motorsports memoribilia collection and considered collectors items or very limited edition pieces based on production history and ownership history
