Tesla Model S P100D Charges Toward The Dark Side On 21-Inch Strasse Wheels

We’ve seen our fair share of tuned Teslas over the years, from cool projects to more ridiculous ones. The build we cover today definitely belongs to the former category.

It’s a range-topping P100D Model S that has received an all-black treatment. Along with the black body color, the electric saloon also features blacked-out chrome accents, smoked headlights and taillights, and tinted windows.

Rounding off the exterior changes are a rear spoiler and a set of 21-inch SM7T Deep Concave alloys from Strasse Wheels. Featuring a Gloss Black center, Gloss Black lip, and Gloss Brushed Red barrel combination, they look absolutely spectacular on this Model S.

The wheels are sized 21×9 at the front and 21×10.5 at the rear, but the maker sells them in a variety of sizes ranging from 18 to 24 inches. On this particular car, they go together really well with the massive red brake calipers. The color theme continues with the Tesla emblems, which are also painted red.

While the styling tweaks clearly improve this Tesla’s appearance, the stock Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive powertrain hardly needs any upgrades. The Model S P100D accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 2.5 seconds and carries on vanishing into the distance until it reaches an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

That insane acceleration is made possible by a high-performance rear electric motor and a high-efficiency front motor that together deliver 562 kW (762 hp) and 687 lb-ft (931 Nm) of torque.
