Unplugged Performance’s Tesla Model S Widebody Kit Costs A Ludicrous $50,000

Tesla tuner Unplugged Performance has devised a complete tuning package for the range-topping Model S P100D.

On display at SEMA, the S-Apex Complete Vehicle Program is highlighted by a widebody conversion kit that increases the car’s overall width by 40 mm (1.57 in) on each fender. The package is made of 19 carbon fiber parts that can be had either in a natural state or painted to match the vehicle’s body color.

Unplugged Performance says the kit can be tailored to the customer’s exact preferences. For example, those interested in a seamless appearance can opt for the integration of exterior panels via hand-sculpting. Thanks to the wider body, the Model S P100D can now wear wider tires (up to 335 mm/13.2 in at the rear).

Besides the 19-piece carbon fiber body kit, the S-Apex Complete Vehicle Program includes a sports suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, and ultra-light wheels. Available rims are available in diameters of 19, 20, and 21 inches. For example, the 20-inch rims on the show car utilize carbon fiber barrels for a 50-percent reduction in rotational mass. As a result, they weigh just 16.8 lbs (7.6 kg) apiece.

The Super-light Carbon Ceramic 6-piston braking system brings a further weight reduction of 20 lbs (9 kg), in addition to the increased stopping power and better fade resistance.

As for the suspension, it features Plug-N-Play High-Performance Shocks. Unplugged Performance says they are “custom tuned for the car, yet maintain full compatibility with the factory height-adjustable air suspension system.” Finally, the tuner also reworked the Model S P100D’s interior for the 2018 SEMA Show by fitting Alcantara, premium leather and carbon fiber trim on almost all the components.

Prices for the S-Apex package start at $50,000, excluding the donor Tesla Model S P100D. That means a new car can exceed $200,000. However, Unplugged Performance can also fit the kit to used P85D, P90D, and P100D cars.

    WHAT?!

    You have got to be joking. You have to be out of your mind, or some middle eastern oil baron, to spend that much money on this.
