Unplugged Performance pulled cover off Tesla Model S demo car, featuring host of aftermarket parts
HAWTHORNE, Calif.—In March we told you about Unplugged Performance, the self-proclaimed world’s first tuning house dedicated to the Tesla Model S.
Well just four months later, Unplugged decided to tell the rest of the world, unveiling its Model S development car at a Tesla owners event in California.
Created to cater to the virtually non-existent Model S aftermarket, Unplugged is currently developing a host of parts for the all-electric sedan to help owners stand out from the growing pack of Teslas on the road.
Based on the top-of-the-line 85-kilowatt hour Model S P85 with the “performance plus” package out of the factory, the Unplugged demo car features aftermarket carbon fibre front and rear diffusers, side skirts and a trunk spoiler, which the company said were produced by former Boeing Co. and Ferrari S.p.A. staff at Unplugged’s Hawthorne, Calif., headquarters.
More performance-oriented improvements are also featured on the car, including upgraded handling, braking, acceleration and battery range, as well as new styling cues for the inside and out, but Unplugged is keeping details under wraps for now.
Check out the gallery below for some teaser images of the new-look Unplugged Model S.
