    For half the price you buy a chair that's actually meant for desk work and doesn't ruin your back.

    We need to stop promoting car seats as desk chairs.

    Don't know where you're getting your 649 USD chairs, but I'd say anything above 299 USD is going to be an assault.

    For that price i would expect an actual car seat from Koenisegg, not those crappy chairs...

    Pretty sure the real chairs are carbon fiber and cost several thousand.

    $299 is entry level for a good chair. but it will still have "pleather" if it's a gaming chair.

    Some car seats are great.
    I've always wanted to make something like this..

    One of those would likely cost you $15K

    Before gaming chairs, a normal office chair was like 100 dollars and really good ones were around 300.

    @TheDeeGee
    car seat isnt the problem, and once you sit down in a porsche/audi (at least S/RS or sport package) its easy to see why.

    when ppl drive hours to a track, then race the same car, AND drive back without their back hurting, you know using a car seat (design) isnt the issue.



    @All
    and yes, if this was an actual W/K seat, its at least 4 digits.

    Of course, i was exaggerating, a lot!:p

    But my point remains, for 1.300€ i would expect something much better and actually related to the brand, they could perfectly ditch the exotic materials and make something base on the actual seat of the car, instead of selling that crap with the Koenisegg name on it...

    This reminds me of the awful Porsche branding, associated with some really crappy products, that have nothing to do with the brand itself...

    My office chair is from a reputable brand and 17 or 18 yo. Costed 250€ back then. Yes it's still good, changed the wheels only.

    I actually thought that was the chair, I loved it.
    Then saw the real chairs, no love.
