The love of classic vehicles runs in our veins
The Cobra Seats story began in the 1960s when the grandfather of current MD, Mark Dunsford, built a reputation for unsurpassed craftsmanship while building seats for the legendary AC Cobra sports car. He worked on cars that were driven by legends such as Stirling Moss and was photographed with icons such as Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. His son inherited both a love of motorsport and a keen eye for detail and began to develop a range of seats for some of the classic sports cars of the time.
In the last 40 years some of those traditional skills have remained unchanged – the ability to craft leather and the attention to fine detail to ensure that stitching is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. However, automotive technology has evolved enormously in those 40 years and Cobra has embraced the latest space and aeronautical technology to develop seats which leads the market in terms of materials, safety and ergonomics.
