Saleen FourSixteen based on Tesla Model S P85 revealed

Saleen announced their electric car project in late 2013 and soon after confirmed it is based on the Tesla Model S.

The model is now officially unveiled and is called Saleen FourSixteen, featuring a more aggressive aerodynamic body kit that includes a new front fascia, V-shaped bonnet, restyled side skirts, new rear bumper with a carbon fibre diffuser and a trunk-mounted spoiler.

All this rides on 21-inch forged aluminium wheels hiding 2-piece aluminium hat vented rotors and multi-piston front calipers with performance brake pads and optional carbon ceramic brakes.

The interior boasts a new centre console, giving driver and the front passenger additional centre storage space. You can also see plenty of fine leather and Alcantara.

There is not much you can do to an electric motor, meaning the standard 416bhp induction motor stays unchanged, but there are still plenty of under the skin updates improving performance like an all-new 11.39:1 final gear ratio for quicker acceleration, a Saleen specific MAXGRIPTM locking differential and a Saleen specific S4 track-calibrated suspension including a monotube coilover, which works in conjunction with an S4 sway bar setup to increase cornering agility without sacrificing ride quality.

The FourSixteen is priced in U.S. from $152,000 (£90,900) for the complete vehicle, which includes the base P85 Model S.
