    More like 55 pounds each. Those Shelby seats appear to be rebadged Cobra Misanos, and Mr. Shelby has only added $1,000 to the price for the privilege of having his name stitched on your seats.

    Hell, I paid less than this for my Recaro Cobra Rs. Quite a bit less.

    Edited to add: These won't save as much weight as you think. The carbon backing is just for decoration; it's tough to make a reclining seat light. My Recaros only shave 13 pounds per seat, and if you want true lightweight seats (under 25 pounds/each) you'll really need a fixed-back race seat.
