Default GT3 Cup Recaro Seats

I have two Recaro seats from my 2005 & 2003 GT3 Cup cars. They are the ones delivered in the car from the factory with the Porsche crest embroidered in the seat and the rabbit ears for your head (hans optimized). I am considering selling as I changed out the seats when I got the car(s).

Anyone know what they might be worth. Both are brand new, taken out of the car before it was ever driven and have their side mounts included.

Thanks for your input.

JCM,

If they are these seats in black they can by purchased new for $1,200. per seat from several Porsche dealers around the country including stock guides.
If color they're worth more. Are both seats driver side seats?

Not a GT3 street car but a Cup car.

Recaro website has this seat listed at $1500.

The seat posted by Greg is the correct seat, except it has the Porsche Crest embroidered in it where the photo says Hans.

Thanks for posting that picture Greg.

IIRC, they are ~ $1500 each new from an authorized Recaro dealer, as shown in the picture posted by Greg.

No idea what Porsche Motorsports would charge.

This seat is the 'standard' Recaro width and does not come in an XL (+35mm wider) version for those of us who are 'big boned'. I purchased the same seat w/o the HANS cutouts (ProRacer SPG XL) last year for $1410....needed that extra 35mm! Very nice seat.

Is the Cup car seat the Carbon/Kevlar version? If so you can almost double that price.
