All-New Ford Mustang gets RECARO Treatment; Performance Seats Available in New Coupe

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hand-crafted Recaro seats will be offered on the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang. The driving experience of the powerful, high-revving Mustang will be enhanced with the bold bolstering and high-performance driving capabilities the Recaro seat offers.

The new sixth generation model has media buzzing about a more "grown up", "evolutionary" and "adventuresome" interior styling in addition to enhanced ride comfort, all of which align with the signature experience that all Recaros offer. The Recaro standalone option will be available on the EcoBoost and GT models.

The seats, which are handcrafted at Recaro's North American headquarters in Auburn Hills, feature Recaro's signature distinctive shoulder and thigh bolsters offering the grip and hold a driver needs when taking a corner while maintaining a comfortable feel for everyday driving.

The design of the new Recaro seat is in line with Mustang's legendary handling and high-performance nature in every way. In addition to the sport performance shoulder bolstering, the new seats are ergonomically designed to optimize long-term comfort and safety.

"Having worked with Ford on the Mustang program in the past as well as the Fiesta ST and Focus ST programs, providing tailor-made Recaro seats for the all-new 2015 Mustang was a must," said Markus Kussmaul, vice president of Recaro North and South America. "We are more than excited to be a part of the brand new sixth generation Mustang and know that our seats will only enhance the one-of-a-kind driving experience that Mustang drivers demand. The fact that Ford is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the vehicle makes it even more exciting for us."

Recaro will be travelling to Las Vegas later this week (April 16-20) to partake in and support the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration hosted by The Mustang Club of America at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The seat performance is enhanced aesthetically with the Recaro logo embroidered prominently on the headrest. The seat offers both cloth and leather options depending on which interior trim is selected.

This exciting program is an extension of Recaro's relationship with Ford which touches both general consumer vehicles as well as Ford Racing. Recaro Automotive Seating currently provides optional performance seats specifically designed for the current Mustang line up, Ford Fiesta ST and Ford Focus ST.
