Complete Your Nissan GT-R Mod With The Recaro Sportster GT Seating
We have a personal grievance with the Nissan GT-R. It simply sucks. The issue isn’t with the performance, sure the front mounted, twin-turbo V6 is good for an insane 600bhp. And sure, the GT-R can take on a Porsche 911. But the interior design sucks. Even the new revised interior… sucks. It’s partly down to the seating, the GT-R seats look more at home in a Range Rover and do not belong in a sports car. If you own a Nissan GT-R or are considering buying one to modify then maybe you should call… an aftermarket specialist. Or better still consider proper sports seats.
The Nissan GT-R’s standard ‘grandad-comfort-seats’ is a 20th-century mindset approach. A sports car should have a driver-focused interior. For Example, McLaren Automotive design interior environments that are driver-focused. Minimal. Yet comfortable.
The GT-R is trying to be part sports car part Grand Tourer and as a result the interior sucks.
Brothers and sisters, the good Lord has seen it and he disapproves (of the GT-R seating). Redemption, REDEMPTION! the Nissan GT-R can redeem itself. And I say redemption comes in many forms, redemption is Recaro. Specifically the Recaro Sportster GT.
If you are looking to modify your GT-R or go down the aftermarket route then a must-have upgrade is to get rid of the standard seating and go for Recaro seats. You get the same levels of comfort and bucket seats are designed to hold you in place when you max it.
