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.
