It looks remarkably like a limited edition Selle Italia Fausto Coppi, but, as per normal, I could be wrong.

I think there’s a used one on ebay at the moment for about £75.

Here’s a pic of my NOS one which still has its original packaging and box.

Steve.

I think the top one is a San Marco Regal, also nicknamed the 'Belgian sofa.' Tom Boonen usually used one.

I have them on two of my bikes, gorgeously comfortable for century rides! :D
