Brabus Presents In Geneva Another Refined Tesla Model S
Tuning company Brabus, a wholly owned by Mercedes-Benz, from time-to-time tries to put its own vision on the Tesla Model S.
About a half-year ago, the company presented a blue Tesla Model S in Frankfurt, and now, on Geneva stage, Brabus shows a black P90D with pretty unique wheels and pther sytylish modifications – we really appreciate the black handles.
Conversely, we are not sure whether everyone appreciate the special green-seats, but if that is the case, there are various other colors available.
If you like the Brabus’ Zero Emission business division arrangement, all you need to do is accept the price, which stands firmly in the “Don’t ask!” range.

About the Brabus Tesla:
New from BRABUS ZERO EMISSION: exclusive high-end refinement for the Tesla Model S
The Tesla S, which in the top-of-the-range model produces an output of 568 kW / 772 HP (761 bhp) in “Ludicrous Mode,” is the textbook example of a state-of-the-art high-performance electric car. BRABUS and its Zero Emission business division have been concentrating on alternative powertrains for about a decade. What would have been more logical than to invest the BRABUS expertise from nearly 40 years in automotive construction and tuning of the highest order into a high-end refinement program for the American luxury sedan?
BRABUS ZERO EMISSION (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) offers an equally exclusive and detailed customization program for the Tesla S.
The BRABUS ZERO EMISSION product range comprises exclusive refinement options for the sedan’s bodywork and interior. The product lineup ranges from sporty aerodynamic-enhancement components made from naked carbon and 21-inch high-tech forged wheels to a BRABUS fine leather interior created from the finest leather and Alcantara.
One of the world-renowned specialties of the BRABUS design team is adding more sporty emphasis to elegant vehicle designs. This formula was also realized successfully in the case of the Tesla Model S. Tailor-made aerodynamic-enhancement components that received their finishing touches in the wind tunnel were developed using state-of-the-art 3D scanning and CAD technology. Just as in motor racing, the material of choice is carbon, permanently sealed with a high-gloss or a matte protective coating.
The BRABUS bodywork components lend the front end of the Tesla Model S a sporty facelift. The carbon attachments for the side air intakes give the car an even more distinctive appearance and optimize the flow of cooling air to the radiators. The BRABUS carbon spoiler lip adds even more dynamics to the front view while also reducing lift on the front axle at high speeds thanks to its sophisticated shape.
The insert in the production rear bumper of the Tesla Model S is replaced with the BRABUS carbon diffuser. This aerodynamic-enhancement component impresses with its optimized air deflection while its visible carbon structure lends the sedan’s rear end a touch of racing flair as well.
Of course, the BRABUS Monoblock Y “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels tailor-made for the Tesla Model S also play a crucial role in the exclusive BRABUS ZERO EMISSION appearance. The one-piece high-tech wheels with delicate Y-shaped spokes are manufactured using a state-of-the-art production process and offer an outstanding combination of lightweight construction and strength. For the Geneva Motor Show 2016, the wheels were painted a glossy black color and fitted with additional light blue undercut elements that mirror the shade of the BRABUS fine leather interior on the outside.
The BRABUS wheels of size 9Jx21 front and back make full use of the available space in the wheel wells. BRABUS chose tires of sizes 245/35 ZR 21 at the front and 265/35 ZR 21 on the rear axle as the perfect solution. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the optimal high-performance tires.
The BRABUS customization program for the Tesla Model S also includes exclusive options for the interior. The product range starts with stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo that changes color from white to blue. The newly developed BRABUS center console for the transmission tunnel offers welcome storage options for keys and similar items. What is more: The integrated cup holders can be set to cooling or heating. In addition, the center console is equipped with a wireless smartphone charger.
Exclusive interior refinement has been a world-renowned BRABUS domain for decades. In the company upholstery shop, absolute masters of their profession create exclusive interior appointments for the Tesla Model S as well. They use especially soft, breathable and extremely hardwearing leather and Alcantara in any desired color to create BRABUS fine leather interiors in a wide range of designs. BRABUS ZERO EMISSION also offers tailor-made genuine carbon and wood trims sets for the cockpit of the electric luxury sedan. These trim sets also come in an unmatched variety of colors and surface finishes.
The Tesla S P90D presented in Geneva strikes a contrast to the black vehicle paint finish with its light blue leather. Black edging and strategically placed contrasting topstitching add classy highlights, as does the high-gloss piano lacquer surface of the BRABUS center console. The floor mats made from black leather with light blue topstitching and edging are finished with the same meticulousness.
The BRABUS ZERO EMISSION customization program for the Tesla Model S is available now and will be expanded continuously. Exclusive refinement options for the new Tesla X electric SUV are already under development.
