The Definitive Guide to Cobra Monaco Seats: Every Variation and Trim Explained

Cobra Monaco seats are highly regarded in the automotive racing industry for their quality, comfort, and performance. These seats come in various trims and editions to cater to different needs and preferences. Here’s an exhaustive look at the different variations available for the Cobra Monaco seats.

Cobra Monaco Seat Sizing

All Cobra Monaco seats are based on one of two sizes: the standard size or the narrow version, which closely matches the dimensions of the Sparco Sprint. The GT variant retains the standard size but features hips flared out by just a few centimeters for enhanced comfort and fit. This ensures that regardless of the specific model, each seat is designed to provide optimal support and fit for a range of drivers, whether for professional racing, track days, or everyday driving.

As we explore the various trims of the Cobra Monaco seats, it is important to note that all these trims are based on the standard size unless otherwise specified. This means that each trim option provides the same high level of support and comfort tailored to the standard dimensions, ensuring consistency across the range. Any deviations from this standard size, such as the narrow version or the GT with its slightly flared hips, will be explicitly stated to help you make the best choice for your needs.

Cobra Monaco Pro

The Cobra Monaco Pro is a professional-grade racing seat designed with a lightweight steel frame and high-quality fabric for durability and comfort. This is the original Cobra Monaco and the benchmark for all further Monaco models available. It is FIA-approved, making it suitable for motorsport use.

Key Point: The Monaco Pro is the only size Monaco that comes with FIA approval. The Sport, Sport narrow, and GT are all non-FIA. So if it’s for professional racing, this is the seat for you.

Cobra Monaco Sport

The Monaco Sport is designed for weekend racers and performance enthusiasts. It maintains the high standards of the Monaco series but at a more accessible price point. The Monaco Sport doesn’t come with FIA approval which is the key difference with the original Monaco Pro. 

Key Point: The easiest way to think about this, is that the Pro is for professional Motorsport, and the sport is for road and track day use. Even though tubular seat and trim is the same, you will not receive the homologation sticker found on the side of the seat.

Cobra Monaco Sport Narrow

It maintains the high standards of the Monaco series but at a more accessible price point. The Monaco Sport doesn’t come with FIA approval which is the key difference with the original Monaco Pro. 

Key Point: This seat is even more compact and perfect for those with smaller cockpits and limited room. This seat has been designed to be similar is size to the Sparco Sprint which is there best selling seat.

Cobra Monaco GT

The Monaco GT variant is optimized for larger sized drivers by taking the non-FIA Monaco Sport and widening the steel frame at the hips creating more internal space within the same frame seat. This is the right choices for any driver that requires a slightly larger seat giving an extra inch width.

Key point: The Monaco GT is based on the Monaco Sport and is not FIA-approved. For FIA approval only the Monaco Pro is suitable and/or any trim variation of the Monaco Pro.

Our Recommended Fitting Brackets

Cobra Monaco Bolt Pattern

The Cobra Monaco seat (All variations) have a narrow fit bolt pattern which is 290mm from side to side and 330mm front to back. 

Cobra Bolt Pattern Miss Match

This bolt pattern is much narrower than Sparco, OMP, and other bucket seats on the market. This means you can not use seat sliders from any other manufacturer as they simply will not fit. 

The Sparco, OMP, and Recaro sliders as just 3 examples are far to wide for the base of the seat and can not be used. So we must stress the importance of using the correct Cobra sliders we list below.  

Side Mount Installation

All Monaco variations come with side mount bolt location points as well as base mount points. This means you can ditch the sliders if you do not require them, and simply bolt the seat down using a suitable set of side mounts. We list below the correct side mounts from Cobra and our favourite side mount from Endurance Motorsport.
