Funny you should ask that.. today I spent a few moments at an upholstery shop, with some pictures of the zanardi seats, and was inquiring as to whether or not the red stitching on the outside of the seats, could be duplicated. Much to my surprise, the upholsterer said that it was highly unlikely that it was possible, without damaging the leather material. I have already gotten the zanardi floor mats in and they look fantastic. My question would be Has anyone had any luck, or even attempted to duplicate the red stitching found in a Zanardi car, on their NSX? If so, could you please send me a few tips. Secondly, has anyone ever priced a set of Zanardi seat covers? Im not sure i'd wanna hear the results of that. Thanks
I actually priced the Zanardi seats and I believe I was quoted a price of about $2000 for the pair. I don't actually remember....once they told me I put the information in the wastbasket of my mind since I knew I would never ever pay that much for seats.
Ken is correct. The seats are almost the single most expensive part of an NSX. They are, indeed, nearly 4,500 per seat new. Other than engine or transmission, I can't think of any more expensive individual part.
We can actually reupholster the seats with a new leather and Zanardi style stitching. Different colors are also available for the leather and or stitching to match body colors, etc. Currently we are doing this on a core exchange basis so that there will be no down time. I will post pictures as soon as they are available.
