This is a power-operated office chair
made by combining a brand new donor office chair
with a seat removed from the passenger side of an authentic Jaguar XJ8. 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 Dove Gray leather. There is typical Jaguar leather wear some places as seen in the pictures, including a scratch on the cushion that pictures did not fully capture, but the chair
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 at least one month 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
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 275 pounds and the front edge of the seat
cushion can be adjusted from 20" - 24"
