Tesla Model S by Saleen renderings released

Saleen Automotive announced their electric car project last year, confirming in late January that the mystery model is based on the Tesla Model S.

We love the Model S and if someone can make it even more attractive and unique, then we are listening.

Saleen Automotive has now released first design sketches of their version of the Tesla Model S with an orange exterior paint and a more aggressive body kit.

The carbon fibre body kit includes a new rear diffuser and decklid trim, as well as new front air vents, carbon ceramic brakes and new Saleen alloy wheels.

The interior is nicely updated with two-tone leather and Alcantara, along with Saleen’s red logo embroidered on the headrests.

The range topping P85 Model S packs 416bhp, taking it from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 130mph.

Saleen will also tweak the mechanics of the Model S, but what exactly is not known yet. Obviously you can’t slam a big supercharger on an electric motor.

The first Saleen Model S will hit the streets this summer.
