Get Intimate with Our WASP Carbon Seats

Since the beginning STÄTUS has been known for their crazy customization options. Being independently owned and made in the USA, we have a lot of freedom to test the creative limits with our seats. We love our customers who get ostrich seats (yes, that’s an actual option) for their C63, or decide to put red cloth seats in their deep purple car for a pop of color.  Whatever the combination is, we can make it happen. We’ve had a lot of change recently. We released the new honeycomb carbon or WASP carbon seats. We followed those up with our red colored carbon seats, then made dreams come true with the announcement of the Ring GT-X being FIA approved for all of our medium husky STÄTUS fans out there. Our most recent leak is about our next custom blue colored carbon. We should be getting those in any day now, so stay tuned! For now we are going to show you our WASP carbon seats in a new light. Here’s a video that gives you a more intimate look at the seat and the backing. We should have a similar preview of the red colored carbon by July, so watch for that.

We recently up graded our configurator with the latest seat options. You can now play with the full line of customization options. Let us know what you think of the video and all the recent events we’ve released. We want to know what  you like and don’t like about the new seats. Tell us on Facebook, Twitter and maybe tag us in a video message on Instagram #RIPVINE!

Red Carbon Pictures Released

The moment most of you have been waiting for. The final pictures of the red carbon seats. When the hexagonal carbon came out, we thought that would be our favorite new carbon backing. It looked so aggressive, unique and could add a personal touch to the interior of any car. Even when we saw the preliminary pictures of the red carbon, we weren’t as excited as when we got the initial hexagonal pictures. It wasn’t until we saw them in person and completely finished that these things blew our mind. The variation in colors that this backing offers is crazy. We tried to communicate the color differences in the pictures below. To say the least, they are by far, the sickest carbon we have available now. If you’re on the fence about buying them, just know, the pictures don’t do this backing justice.

Obviously not everyone has our opinion, the second that we sent pictures to our dealers the first pair was gone. The buyer didn’t need the pictures from the final photo shoot to make their decision. We can’t wait to see the blue carbon in person. Sky’s the limit! We have been asking on Facebook and Instagram what color of carbon people would like to see. From all the suggestions we like the idea of a white carbon the best. What color carbon would you want if we could offer it? Let us know in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Below is a culmination of the pictures we have received from the beginning of the red carbon to present. Enjoy!

Preview of the New Blue Steel Backing

If you got the Zoolander reference, congratulations, we can be friends. If you didn’t, we suggest you rent the movie ASAP, now back to the seats. Over the past couple weeks we’ve been slowly releasing new STÄTUS exclusive seat backs. We are the only ones who offer anything like this in the industry. We’ve released the hexagonal carbon, that people fell in love with. Then we blew their minds with our first colored carbon, they sold the day we got them. Now we are really outdoing ourselves by teasing you with a sexy, fresh, blue carbon, that is sure to turn heads. With the color options of fabric and stitching we have too, the possibilities are endless.

Speaking of fabric and stitching, if you saw the photo shoot we did of the hexagonal (honeycomb) carbon. You may have noticed and upgrade that hasn’t been available until now. You can get the STÄTUS logo stitched one color and then have the outlining be a different color. The other icon upgrade you can get is having the STÄTUS logo be stitched on the back of the seat (Scroll to see pictures of both options). Both of those upgrade are through our icon program.

For more information on the blue, red, or hexagonal carbon seats or the icon options, email sales@statusracing.com. Tell us what you think of the new blue colored carbon in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

More Weekend Racers can be FIA Approved

All medium-husky weekend racers can now celebrate! We are excited to announce that our STÄTUS Ring GT-X with the carbon fiber backing has been FIA approved. Until now, we could only offer one type of STATUS seat to those looking for an FIA approved racing seat. The first seat to get approved was our STATUS Ring seat with FRP backing. One of the best parts about STÄTUS seats is the customization opportunities. Each seat is made to order, so it can be tailored to fit any unique or outlandish interiors. STATUS is perpetually inspired by those who push the creative limits with their interior. Now we have something else to offer those who want to be creative and have an FIA approved seat.

The Ring GT-X normally fits a 36 inch waists; however, we have seen people with 32 inch say they barely fit and people with 38 say it fits perfectly. It is all about how you like your fitment.  We do intend to move forward and get other STATUS seats approved, but the approval process takes time and money. In addition to two FIA Approved seats, we also offer 5 and 6pt harnesses that are FIA approved. Get the perfect setup for your ride by using our online seat configurator. We pioneered the configurator to help people to see, share and order, the exact seats they want. We also have a new program that will get a free pair of Status Ring seats in your car without paying a dime.

Here are some videos and picture of the seats being tested. If you have questions about the GT-X or any of our other seats email us at sales@statusracing.com or find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

(NOTE: The FIA approval is only for GT-X with the regular carbon fiber backing and does not include the color or WASP (hexagonal) carbon.)
