AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hand-crafted Recaro seats
will be standard fitment for the return of the most iconic model in Camaro
history, the Z/28. The driving experience of the powerful, high-revving,
track-ready Z/28 will be enhanced with the bold bolstering and
high-performance driving capabilities the Recaro seat offers.

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 was unveiled at the New York Auto Showand will arrive at
dealers in the United States in early 2014.The new Z/28 will come standard
with Recaro seats, a natural selection for the high-performance, track-ready
vehicle. The new seats, also available on the coupe versions of the Camaro SS
1LE package and ZL1 models, feature Recaro's signature distinctive bolsters
for high-performance driving, as well as seat cutouts inspired by the
five-point harnesses found on racing seats.

The design of the new Recaro seat is in line with Chevrolet's track-tested and
approved high-performance vehicles in every way. In addition to the sport
performance shoulder bolstering, the new seat is ergonomically designed to
optimize long-term comfort and reduce driver fatigue. The curved backrest
supports the driver, optimizing lumbar support and compensating for the forces
that come with intense driving. Bolstering located at the waist, lower back
and thighs helps to firmly hold the driver in place for optimal handling
capabilities.

"Our American-made, hand stitched and hand assembled seats complement the new
Camaro in both look and performance," said Markus Kussmaul, vice president of
Recaro North and South America. "Recaro artisans match 'higher than industry'
standards in hand-crafting tour seats with finesse, using the highest quality
materials and standards. We are thrilled to be working with GM on such a
substantial flagship program with one of its most iconic vehicles."

The seat performance is enhanced aesthetically with fine quality leather hides
that include Miko suede inserts for a luxurious look and feel consistent with
Recaro's unique and industry-leading design. Individually handcrafted top
stitching and French seam detailing, hand sewn to the highest standards of
artistry, lead to a final look that is crisp and clean, complementing the
Camaro's sporty interior. The hand sewn seat covers are refined and tight,
giving the seat the coveted sculpted and clean Recaro look. The seats will
include model-specific embroidered detailing and an embossed Recaro logo in
the headrest.

This exciting program is an extension of Recaro's relationship with General
Motors. Recaro Automotive Seating currently provides optional performance
seats specifically designed for the Cadillac CTS-V SERIES.
