After getting our attention with several tuned Teslas recently, RevoZport has now launched an upgrade kit for the NIO ES8, giving it a more aggressive, and if you ask us, a suspiciously BMW i-like flair too.
The Chinese electric SUV gains several carbon fiber aerodynamic components on the outside, such as the front apron, fender flares, side skirts and rear diffuser, with contrasting electric-blue accent trims. The front and rear bumpers have been restyled and the wheels are now 22-inch in size with beefy 285 wide rubber.
RevoZport says that the exterior now looks more “masculine and aggressive”, so they tried to bring some of that look inside. As a result, the cabin gets carbon fiber trim on the doors and center console in the same electric blue color, while there are also new side sills and the seat backs have carbon fiber covers, “designed to protect against those scuffs and scratches”, according to the tuner.
Elsewhere, the car remains stock, meaning that it’s still powered by two electric motors that produce a combined output of 652 PS (643 hp / 480 kW) and 840 Nm (620 lb-ft) of torque. The ES8 can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and maxes out at 180 km/h (112 mph). Its 70 kWh battery pack allows it to travel for up to 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge.
The SUV has a starting price that equals to $69,000 in China, before incentives.
The new R-Zentric Aero Kit will launch in May and pricing will be announced closer to that date.
