For Tesla owners that want to make more than just a green statement.
After a shot in the dark with , German tuner Novitec, best known for its , received such an “overwhelmingly positive response” that it has decided to work its magic on the Model S. The tuner claims that many Model S owners want nothing more than to have a sportier looking ride, so have developed naked-carbon body components that add a visual flair to the four-door sedan as well as optimizing the aerodynamics.
The add-ons include a front spoiler lip, which reduces front axle lift at high speeds and improves handling, rocker panels that endow the Tesla with a more planted stance while calming the airflow around the sides of the vehicle, and a rear lip spoiler and diffuser at the back. Again, the result is a more athletic look while enhancing handling. A set of 21-inch NV2 alloys, designed specifically for the Tesla Model S, were developed in collaboration with Vossen. With a stunning five slanted double-spoke design, each individual wheel was manufactured for the specific corner of the car, ensuring the spokes remain in an aerodynamically optimized position.
Novitec also offers a coilover suspension for Model S cars that don’t have the pneumatic suspension, allowing owners to drop their rides by up to 40 mm. It also provides three damper settings, moving from Comfort – Normal – Sport, via a touch of a button. Tesla Model S models with air suspension can request a modified control system that lowers the ride height by 25 mm. Stopping power has also been enhanced with a carbon-ceramic high-performance braking system. 380 x 34 mm and six-piston fixed calipers for the front axle are available as part of Variant 1 package, while Variant 2 adds 360 x 28 mm carbon-ceramic discs and four-piston brake calipers at the rear.
As with all Novitec upgrades, customers can tailor the cockpit with an array of high-end leathers and Alcantara coupled with decorative stitching. Prices available upon request.
