For the last few years, Tesla has been playing a game of performance oneupmanship with itself, slowly releasing ever more powerful versions of its Model S, leaving little room for aftermarket tuners to have any fun with the now-infamous EV.

Finally, however, Brabus has taken a stab at modifying the Model S. It's made the Tesla a bit more 'Ludicrous' ... but not in the way you're likely thinking.
Brabus made a name for itself by taking Mercedes AMGs and making them even more mental. Seeing room for expansion into the burgeoning all-electric car world, Brabus created an EV-tuning arm, Brabus Zero Emission (BZE), which has turned its attention to the Tesla P85D.

Smartly realizing it couldn't push much beyond the factory-created 772-horsepower, which will rocket the car to 60 mph from a standstill in 2.8 seconds, Zero Emission instead turned its attention to the aesthetics. First off, you'll notice it now sports some matte laser blue paint, which accents Brabus Zero Emission's big changes. Engineers have gone around the interior and exterior and added the Brabus touch. In the front they've bolted carbon side air intake extenders, which add a bit of menace as well as a healthy helping of extra air to the radiators. Running beneath the front fascia, BZE slapped a front spoiler lip — also carved from carbon — that reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds.
At the tail end, BZE added a rear diffuser, giving the round-y rear a touch of racing flare while also reducing air deflection. Finishing off the look,

Fixing a glaring Tesla oversight, BZE installed a center console over the transmission tunnel, complete with heated and cooled cupholders as well as a wireless smartphone charging pad.

Ensuring the rest of the interior feels sufficiently Brabus-y, seating surfaces are covered in leather and Alcantara and the trim bits can be fitted with real wood and carbon fiber. If you're keen to get this Brabus Zero Emission P85D that now looks as ludicrous as it accelerates, the tuner will take your money now.
