Saleen Shows Off First Sketches of Custom Tesla, Promises Summer Arrival
Saleen is known for its work on cars like the Mustang, or the Camaro, or the Challenger — and a few in-between. But now the American tuner shop is headed in a new direction with a project that’s a little more electrifying (excuse the obvious pun). It’s a custom Tesla Model S, and apparently it’s coming out this summer. Saleen originally announced its plans to build an electric custom a few months back, and we were skeptical, but it’s not until now do we see exactly what said EV will encompass with a few teaser sketches. Off the bat, it’s easy to see that the Model S will wear a custom new Saleen body kit loaded with a healthy heaping of carbon fiber. A new front diffuser, new wheels, and new aerodynamics all make the sports sedan even better looking. PHOTOS: See More of the 2014 Saleen Tesla Model S
Inside, we can also see that the Tesla will feature gray leather and Alcantara, with red stitching throughout, and that signature iPad-like center console.
What exactly will be under the hood has yet to be determined. Naturally, we expect the Saleen Model S to put to use an electric motor and possibly some aftermarket goodies. We’re waiting in anticipation for this arrival, as it’s set to make its debut later this summer.
