This is a power-operated office chair made by combining brand new office chair parts with a seat removed from the passenger side of an authentic Jaguar XJ8 L. The side airbag has been removed. It has been thoroughly cleaned and is in very nice overall condition as you can see in the pictures above. The seat is upholstered in its original Cashmere leather. There is typical Jaguar leather wear in some places as seen in the pictures, but the chair shows very well. It will be shipped partially disassembled and will require about 10 minutes to put together. Only simple hand tools are required.
This chair retains the Jaguar's power reclining mechanism, power headrest, power lumbar support and power front and rear tilt functions. The power features are adjusted by pushing a button on the side of the seat just exactly as you would if you were sitting inside a Jaguar XJ8. An appropriate battery and charger is included with the chair to power it. The battery is expected to last several weeks between charges and to have an overall life of at least eight years. The battery is easily removed for charging and the chair can be used while the battery is out. The chair also has manually adjustable headrest tilt, swivel, standard office chair tilt/recline/infinite tilt lock, tension adjust, height adjustment, arms that are adjustable vertically and laterally etc. This is a very unique item that is near impossible to find anywhere and would be the ultimate office chair for an enthusiast. There is a signed and dated "Rebirth Certificate" attached to the underside of the chair that details by year, make, model and VIN exactly which car the seat is from and ensures its uniqueness. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thank you.
I put together the first of these chairs after having a couple of store-bought office chairs with foam cushions that quickly became flattened and useless and made it feel like I was sitting on a park bench at work all day. Automobile seats are designed for long-distance comfort and I thought they might make a great office chair. It turns out they do. They provide all-day comfort in the office just like they do in the cars. They typically use a combination of padding and steel springs rather than a single piece of foam over plywood or plastic like most office chairs and they simply don't degrade like regular office chairs. I've been using a Mercedes chair in my office since August 2014 and couldn't be happier. One day a coworker saw my new chair, said it was the coolest thing she's ever seen and thought I should try making them for other people too, so here we are. I've learned a few things by using one of these chairs daily and by having built many others. So, I've upgraded the design of this chair as a result.
The weight capacity of this chair is 300 pounds and the front edge of the seat cushion can be adjusted from 19.5" - 22.5"
