Check Out This Modded “Racing Extinction” Tesla Model S (images + video)

JAN 19 2015 BY MIKE ANTHONY 8

So, this is what that Tesla Model S with the electroluminescent paint was for.

As you’ll see in these pictures and video, this Model S is fitted with all kinds of James Bond 007-like gadgets/upgrades for a documentary film called “Racing Extinction“.

The modded Model S will be driven by Leilani Munter, race car driver and an environmental activist who owns a Tesla Model S P85+.

Munter claims that the paint upgrade alone costs $40,000 dollars a gallon and says that it takes close to 10 gallons to paint the Model S in this high-tech hue.  So, you’re looking at a $400,000 paint job, making this the most expensive Model S ever.

In a nutshell, Racing Extinction is a film that exposes the environmental and endangered species concerns that we’re facing.  The film will debut at the Sundance Film Festival, which runs from January 22 through February 15.

To understand more about the film, check out the Racing Extinction trailer below:

There is a saying in China…

I’m afraid the Chinese (and Indians) as they industrialize are going to kill this planet.

They’re talking about your mother when she’s at work.

Folowing the example given by the US and Europe…

I think you meant to say “Click here to see that rear projector pop out!

I know what you meant though.

Just how ecologically friendly, is the electroluminescent paint? My guess is, not very.
