I've got one of the Dealer's specialist books. AR9 is leather trimmed seats. Applies to all Vettes made. Color codes for the Z06 are black=194, torch red and black=704. AQ9 means you've got the leather trimmed adjustable sport bucket, N/A for the Z06. Hope that helps. If you have any more RPO questions, let me know. I should be able to find the answer in this book.
Dave....Yes, I have option AR9 in my Red/Blk.This cars' options are BSM (removed),floor mats,License frame!
I'll check and see if the Blk/Mod Red has it tomorrow and let you know,that car is loaded minus BSM!
According to my book, every Z06 has this seat as standard equipment with no other option available. Mine certainly does. Other Vettes have the option of a sport seat with adjustable lumbar and side supports (RPO AQ9). No European style seats are mentioned. See you at Divisionals.
Thanks Vader! Over on CorvetteForum, they had said that AR9 was 'European' Bucket seats, and that only 200 and something Z-06 got them?? I thought it sounded strange, and that is why I posted this question... hopefully we can get more feedback... if what you report is the truth, then that should mean that NO Z-06's came without that option!
