Brabus tunes the Tesla Roadster

Brabus tunes the Tesla Roadster

Tesla Roadster Brabus fq

As the motoring world shifts toward the electrification of cars, tuning companies are left wondering about the future, and what changes they will have to make for financial survival. Brabus is doing something about it. Known as the third-party alternative to AMG when it comes to enhancing Mercedes vehicles, Brabus recently announced its first foray into electricity. The German tuner is now offering a package of changes for the Tesla Roadster. For the moment at least, there are no changes to the electric powertrain. That means Brabus has focused purely on cosmetic enhancements, which includes a very interesting “space sound generator” that emulates the roar of a V8, race car engine or two futuristic sounds called “Beam” and “Warp” to the car’s occupants.

A set of LED running lamps are added to the front air intake and look like they may have been ripped off an Audi.  Underbody neon lighting offers some 1989 Miami-bling and the rear wing is another addition. The Tesla gets a new paint job in the form of a matte white finish. The only other change is the new 18-inch front/ 19-inch rear wheel/tyre set-up with Pirelli P Zero Nero tires. The Brabus package will debut later this month at the Essen Motor Show in Germany.
