The Unplugged Performance Tesla Model S S-APEX is the pinnacle of what a four-door all-electric sedan can do in performance & looks wise, delivering a gorgeous widebody Model S that will turn heads and break lap time records
For owners that don’t mind parting with more than $249,000 (the starting point for an Unplugged Performance S-APEX build), this is the best you can get in terms of visual and performance upgrades for your Tesla Model S right now. Sure, we might be a little biased, but getting a widebody this clean and looking this gorgeous isn’t an easy feat to achieve. Particularly with an all-electric super sedan that can duke it out with the best of them on the track. In turn, this is one of the most highly coveted items in the electric car world right now, and Unplugged Performance has a long waiting list of clients waiting on their very own S-APEX right now.
Every Tesla Model S S-APEX build is uniquely commissioned to the specific individual tastes of each owner. However, the one characteristic shared by all builds is performance. S-APEX builds include the 19-piece pre-preg carbon fiber body, racing suspension, lightweight carbon ceramic brakes, and ultra-light forged wheels. All that makes the S-APEX a true track weapon, all the while keeping all its usual comfort & daily driving amenities.
The signature design of an S-APEX Model S comes from its low-drag, 19-piece carbon fiber body conversion, which increases overall width by forty millimeters per corner. The S-APEX body conversion can be configured to showcase visible carbon fiber, or painted to match the vehicle’s body color. (For those interested in a seamless appearance, integration of exterior panels via hand-sculpting is also available.) The widened body enables increased tire width (up to 335mm in the rear) for maximum performance while being engineered to maintain full compatibility with Tesla’s Autopilot systems.
For the interior, the owners can select the gorgeous Banbū Leather interior, a gorgeous man-made leather that looks & feels close to the real thing, all the while being gentler for nature. It’s a high-tech sustainable material that was developed by the von Holzhausen team to usher in a new era of luxury without compromise.
Von Holzhausen’s proprietary material science has led to the creation of Banbū Leather, a vegan leather that is buttery-soft like lambskin, scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, water-resistant, lightweight, and made from the most renewable raw material on earth (yes, you guessed it – bamboo). Perfect for a vehicle like the Model S, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create a more nature-friendly environment for our kids. And yes, combat climate change.
Overall, this vehicle is the pinnacle of Model S performance & visual design. It’s what Alpina is to BMW, AMG is to Mercedes-Benz and it clearly sets a distinction between the normal Teslas and track-oriented beasts you can daily driver in the same comfortable, fashionable way. No wonder there’s a long waitlist for the S-APEX right now, that’s for sure.
