PRIOR-DESIGN Tesla Model S P100D shines in Monaco
Tesla, the innovative American company founded by visionary Elon Musk, has revolutionized the electric car world. By offering a dynamic looking machine with good performance and a respectable Eco-image, along with a radically different business model for retailing it, Tesla turned the electric car into a cool lifestyle object that also attracts tuners and petrol heads!
Taking up the challenge to make the sleek Tesla S P100 D look even more attractive, tuning specialist PRIOR-DESIGN recently launched their aerodynamic styling kit for this car as the highlight of their first time participation at Top Marques Monaco.
Billed as most exclusive super-car and lifestyle show in the world, Top Marques Monaco is a compact but popular event with a backdrop of super yachts and lavish properties owned by ultra high net worth individuals.
The PRIOR-DESIGN conversion gives the P100 D a sportier and more dynamic appearance to match its sensational performance. Able to catapult itself to 100 km/h in just 2.4 sec, yet eke out a range of around 620 km on a single charge, the Tesla S has turned the electric car world on its head.
A new front bumper, incorporating a spoiler lip, gives the car a more aggressive face, while at the rear, the new valence with diffuser and rear spoiler deliver a more purposeful look and help to reduce lift at speed. Deeper side sills complete the aerodynamic kit, which is offered in either Duraflex or carbon-fiber.
To fill out the cars wheel arches, PRIOR-DESIGN used their dynamic looking ten-spoke PD5 forged alloy wheels in 9.0 and 10.5×21-inch sizes front and rear respectively, and shod with 245/30 ZR21 and 295/25 ZR21 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Finished in metallic dark grey, this wheel/tire combination stands out in stark contrast with the cars white paint. Finally, an H&R electronic lowering module helps the handling and gives the car a lower more muscular stance.
To add a finishing touch to the interior PRIOR-DESIGN gave the Model S P100D sumptuous Napa leather and Alcantara upholstery, set off with carbon-fiber trim inserts.
