Is This The Most Sinister Tesla Model S Ever?

It could be the most sinister Tesla Model S we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Originally published on EVANNEX.

When Oliver “Oli” Sykes reached out to me on social media, I quickly learned he had … um, a few million followers. Between Twitter and Instagram, he’s got plenty of adoring fans. I guess it helps to be the lead singer of Bring me the Horizon. The band has changed quite a bit, as Sykes explains to the UK’s Independent: “We were just a metal band at one point. We were doing alright and playing some shows and now… now we’re one of the biggest heavy rock bands in the world.” It turns out that Sykes is turning his fans on to another passion of his … Tesla.

Like everything Sykes does, he’s doing it his own way. His Tesla is no ordinary Tesla. Sykes connected with me after he’d ordered a mesh grille and some red caliper covers for his new Tesla Model S. He was getting a few more things including a blade spoiler and lighted T — he wanted to make some mods to his Tesla in order to: “really pimp it out… [and] I’m getting it wrapped matte black.” After getting all the work done, he sent me some stunning photos along with a note: “so just got the car back today…looks insane! Here’s some photos… looks unreal right?” Indeed. It could be the most sinister Tesla Model S we’ve ever laid eyes on.

In any event, I wanted to include a brilliant photo gallery shot by Sykes’ brother, Tom. You can check out more of Tom Sykes’ photography on his site, Seven Points, and on Instagram. Looks like he’s also shot some amazing photos for Sykes’ clothing line Drop Dead. So… check out the murdered out Tesla below — just be sure to listen to Sykes’ band, Bring me the Horizon, as you peep the photos…

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
