Blue Matte Tesla Model S Used To Advertise Wheels (VIDEO)

June 19th, 2013 by  

This beautiful blue matte Tesla Model S is the most attractive Model S I’ve seen to date (of course, imho). Interestingly, it was used to advertise wheels. Read the Gas2 repost for details:

The automotive aftermarket offers pretty much any and everything you could want for your ride. While electric cars are the new kids on the block, many aftermarket features translate easily onto rides like the Tesla Model S. A new coat of matte paint and some 22-inch Vossen Wheels liven up the already-sexy Model S. Can you dig it?

Tesla offers nine colors from its California factory, which is a fair number of options, though there are plenty of other aftermarket options, like the pink-wrapped Tesla of a Google exec. This matte-blue Tesla, meanwhile, serves as a showcase for Vossen’s 22-inch CV1 Concave rims. The largest wheels the Tesla factory offers are 21-inch tires wrapped in high-performance rubber.

This is just the beginning of the aftermarket modifications the Tesla Model S is sure to see. I can’t wait until people start digging into and modding the drivetrain, making the Model S faster and better than even Elon Musk imagined.

    To me cars always look best when left alone and driven safely.

    Those are smokin’ hot wheels. Even cooler than the ones I saw on a Lotus at Wholefoods this morning!

      I finally looked at the video. It’s a hoot and a finger in the eye to the oil industry.

      Tesla’s leaving the gas cans behind….

      (Notice how deserted the gas station is?)
