For more and more Californians, environmentalism is a new kind of religion, which perfectly fits to their traditional beliefs. However, as most Americans, they also love big and fast cars. Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk, the ,high priest’ of the EV society, knows that this doesn’t have to be a contradiction. Now, the premium tuner LARTE Design has made his sophisticated Tesla Model S even more attractive and was invited to visit the company HQ in Palo Alto.
The occasion for this visit was the official Tesla Motor Club summit from July 10-12 in nearby Santa Clara (California). LARTE had been invited to present its tuned Tesla Model S, which is called Elizabeta, to the 400 official guests of the conference. The car features ultra lightweight bumpers made of basalt fibers. Even when you add the additional design facings all round, the complete bodywork reaches only 13kg altogether: these carbon elements on front bumper, wheel arches, side skirts, trunk lid and the rear diffuser insert complete the package. Furthermore, the Elizabeta exhibits a reworked interior and 22” forged wheels. LARTE Design also offers an unusual sound module to acoustically replicate the car’s enormous acceleration.
If you want to put the pedal to the metal in a Tesla Model S, the LARTE alloy pedal set should be the first choice. This cool gadget was also one of the attractive prizes at the summit’s official lottery. Altogether, ten companies from the Tesla world were exhibiting their products at the event.
