$205K Tesla Model S by T Sportline

There is no doubt that the Tesla Model S is a premium product that carries a premium price tag. While Tesla itself often quotes the “starting at” price for its Model S, however, at least one Tesla owner wanted to see just how high he could get the car’s price by ticking all the options that were made available to him. The result? The $205,820 Tesla Model S shown here.

Now, to be fair, I should point out that nearly half of the cost of the $200K Tesla you see here comes from aftermarket upgrades made by a company called TSportline. Presenting themselves as a sort of “AMG for Tesla,” TSportline claims to be “the world’s first electric car accessory tuner specifically focusing on the Tesla Motors brand.” And these people know a thing or two about jacking up a car. “We are a group of automotive enthusiasts with over 30 years of combined automotive accessory experience. Our passion is electric cars and the Tesla brand. We believe Tesla has provided us a pallet (sic) where we can enable each owner to individualize his or her Tesla.”

Faulty grammar notwithstanding, it looks like the TSportline guys know what’s what. You can see what the included TSportline upgrade options cost here …

Most Expensive Tesla Model S

… and note that their prices are actually fairly reasonable when compared to, say, RENNtech or Brabus, who offer similar visual and interior upgrades for Mercedes and Tesla-branded cars. If you can afford it, then, it might not be a bad price to pay for an utterly unique ride.

You can see more of the modifications TSportline made to this “most expensive Tesla Model S” in Gas2′s 15 image photo gallery, and let us know what you think of the car in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

    There are far more expensive EVs out there. http://www.engadget.com/2013/06/07/mercedes-benz-sls-amg-electric-drive-breaks-nurburgring-record/

    Setting a record for “most expensive” anything is pretty easy. In this case, just take a fully loaded Model S and add $100k of useless crap to it.

    I’ll admit it looks ok. Though not much better than a stock Model S, and those gold wheels are ghastly.

    Egad.

  • Wayne Williamson

    This is just kind of silly. I’m sure someone would tack on some gold or platinum in large quantities(say 10 or 20 pounds(20x16x1k)~320k) with a nice mark up;-)

    Well the $1500 window tint might be slightly high…
