Unplugged Performance thought of you if Tesla’s Model S design is too tame for your liking.
Fancying itself as the aftermarket’s answer to Mercedes’ AMG and BMW’s M division for the Tesla Model S, Unplugged Performance now offers body kits for the American EV.
Neighbors with Tesla’s Hawthorne Design Center, Unplugged said it offers hardcore Model S owners a way to stand apart from the crowd.
Unplugged Performance stated it is the world’s first tuning company dedicated to the Tesla Model S. Unplugged said its “debut consists of a tastefully aggressive redesign of the Model S’s front fascia, side skirts, rear under spoiler and trunk spoiler.”
The tuning company added all of its products retain adequate ground clearance for everyday use yet add a significant edge to the car’s design. Unplugged also said external improvements are the first step as they are developing modifications that will increase the Model S’s power, improve the car’s suspension and add further exotic luxury to the car’s interior.
Available as you read this, the Unplugged Performance body panel system consists of ready to install parts finished in professionally color matched paint or in carbon fiber construction. All parts are offered individually or as a set and include: a complete front fascia system; a front spoiler and diffuser system; a side skirt set; a rear under spoiler and diffuser system; and the expected trunk spoiler.
Unplugged explained its parts are developed by a team of professional automobile designers that originally met at Art Center College of Design and an ex-Ferrari F1 Team composites engineer.
Unplugged began development in 2013 and is a spinoff of Bulletproof Automotive, a company with 14 years of experience in sports cars and exotics modifications.
“As an owner of a Tesla Model S P85+ I can tell you that the car is already an exceptional and unique driving experience,” said Ben Schaffer, President of Unplugged’s parent company Bulletproof Automotive. “However being also an active member of the supercar community I can say from experience that every car including even the greatest supercars have the ability to become better still when upgraded with the right selection of parts. It has been proven again and again that regardless of how great a car is from the factory, it is truly only a starting point to extract the vehicle’s true potential. Brands like Mercedes’ AMG exist to bring an increased level of excitement to the ownership experience and Unplugged Performance’s goal is to push the potential of the Tesla Model S further than anyone has imagined. Unplugged is creating a future for our fellow Tesla owners that want to get the most out of their Tesla experience by upgrading their cars. Whether it is new heights of performance, styling or driving satisfaction Unplugged Performance will be developing upgrades that are worthy and well-designed improvements for such a revolutionary car.”
