Tillett B9 Audi R8 Seat Kit

Tillett B9 seat kit for 2nd generation Audi R8

The B9 Model updates the popular B1. Ultra light car seat made for performance saloon cars.

The lightest car seat option for road and track use in performance saloon cars. The B9 is identical in shape to the B8. The difference between the two models is weight and finish. The B9 weighs an astonishing 3.2kg and has a beautiful gloss carbon finish both front and rear, making it the premium option.

The B9’s fantastic qualities are a result of its twin skin moulding construction, structural use of carbon fibre and epoxy resin. These attributes result in a seat both rigid and strong yet remains far lighter than any other comparable seats on the market.

The B9 has excellent support along with comfort and convenience for daily driving. The carefully contoured shape locates the body firmly in position, whilst leaving the shoulders free to steer the car unhindered. Its shape is so perfectly moulded to the body that it requires no covering, reducing the overall seat weight even further and lowering the driving position. The ability of the B9 to run without padding makes it ideal for an open topped car used in a harsh environment. We do however recommend using our thin Dinamica suede covered panel sets for more regular road use.

This kit comes with a pair of Tillett B9 seats with a T1 branded headrest, Sparco seat sliders, Planted Technology seat bases and Tillett Side Brackets. Available with no seat inserts, black suede inserts, or silver hex stitched inserts.
