Following a number of teasers and previews, Russian tuner Larte finally unveiled their take on the Tesla Model S at the 2015 Top Marques Monaco. Larte Design Tesla Model S, affectionally named Elizabeta, was approved by the Prince of Monaco who is a big fan of electric cars and is used to the sight of wealthy Russians in his small but magnificent dominion.
Described by its makers as the perfect combination of “ultimate performance and environment-friendly technology,” Larte Design Tesla Model S comes with a handsome body kit designed in true Larte style with aggressive bumpers and grilles and skirts. The new body components are all made from a lightweight material called basalt fiber – produced from natural lava rock – which reduces the weight of the Elizabeta compared to a normal Model S.
Technical details of Larte Design Tesla Model S are yet to be revealed, but according to the tuner the car boasts an innovative new driving sound, a redesigned interior and big forged wheels. So chances are the performance has not been enhanced in anyway. After all, boosting the output of an electric motor is a whole different ball game compared to an internal combustion engine.
Stay tuned for more on Larte Design Tesla Model S Elizabeta over the coming weeks.
