Brabus TESLA Roadster Sport

If you think tuning is all about power, then you must know that Brabus has prepared a TESLA Roadster Sport model that will premiere at the 2009 Essen Motor Show.

The Brabus TESLA Roadster Sport received the Brabus Green Package that features a new RWE Quick Charger that enables faster charging. This high-tech charger fits easily in any garage and offers eco-friendly RWE Eco-Power for 30,000 kilometers.

Charging time for the Brabus TESLA Roadster Sport is three times faster when using the RWE charger compared to using a standard power outlet, offering the green roadster a range of 350 km in less than 6 hours.

Exterior upgrades on the Brabus TESLA Roadster Sport include a redesigned front apron made from light carbon fiber that also includes LED daylight running lights, side under-floor lights that activate upon door opening, a new rear diffuser and the tuner's 18 inch custom Monoblock S wheel and tire combination.

Various exclusive interior modifications are also offered for the TESLA Roadster Sport by Brabus.

The TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package
Including RWE Quick Charger and Eco-Power for 30,000 km

Electric cars are on the move: Enthusiasm for this future-oriented technology will grow further if customers have their own powerful charging stations at home. The new RWE Quick Charger delivers much shorter charging times. The special model TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package comes at just the right time to take advantage of this fact.

RWE and BRABUS Zero Emission, a business division of the world’s largest independent refiner of automobiles, together now offer an innovative all-around carefree package. The two-seater sports car features an exclusive BRABUS equipment package, but that’s not all: RWE contributes the RWE-BRABUS electric car charger to this unique car. This new high-tech charger easily fits in the customer’s garage and comes complete with eco-friendly RWE Eco-Power for 30,000 kilometers of green driving. Also included is a year’s pass for free use of all public RWE charging stations.

The combination of fascinating electric sports car and the possibility to recharge the car quickly and eco-friendly both at home and on the road is the first product to result from the new cooperation between RWE and BRABUS.

 “GREEN PACKAGE” consists of:
* TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS
* The RWE-BRABUS car charger
* One year free use of all public RWE charging stations
* RWE Eco-Power contingent for 30,000 km

RWE has developed an extremely powerful compact quick charger with high-quality design for home use that takes up little space. “Electric mobility for everyday use requires short charging times. With the RWE-BRABUS car charger our customers can recharge their cars three times faster than using a standard electrical outlet – a range of 350 km in less than six hours,” says Carolin Reichert, director of the E-Mobility business division at RWE. Customers can also use all public RWE charging stations. Drivers can quick charge their cars where they park, for example at work or when shopping at the mall. RWE has already installed more than 160 public charging stations in eight German cities. 500 of these stations will be operating soon in Berlin alone. By 2010 the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia will have 400 stations and the expansion of the system is well under way in other German cities.

The TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package comes with exclusive BRABUS appointments that include an even more stunning appearance. To give the mid-engine sports car a more striking face the BRABUS designers upgrade the front apron with an especially lightweight carbon-fiber front lip and daytime running lights integrated into the grille.  Initially the partners offer the special model TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package in Germany.

The sides of the TESLA are upgraded with BRABUS under-floor lights that look like futuristic space lights. They are activated with the key fob or by opening the doors.

Immediately noticeable in the rear are the BRABUS rear wing and the BRABUS rear diffuser, both manufactured from lightweight, high-strength carbon fiber. Color-coordinated applications add further visual emphasis to the round taillights.

Speaking of color: BRABUS fulfills any color requests from owners of the electric sports car. The list of available colors ranges from conventional non-metallic and metallic paint in any color imaginable to special matte paintjobs or special-effect paints with genuine crystals.

Custom-tailored BRABUS tire/wheel combinations further improve the car’s driving dynamics. The two-seater is refined with weight-optimized BRABUS Monoblock S alloy wheels in size 7Jx18 in front and in size 8.5Jx19 in back. The corresponding high-performance tires in size 215/35 ZR 18 in front and in size 255/30 ZR 19 on the rear axle were selected specifically for their low rolling resistance.

Innovative ideas have been the domain of BRABUS for more than three decades. Following that tradition the TESLA Roadster tuning program of the company from Bottrop addresses an issue often criticized on electric cars: The engine sound! To give the two-seater a more emotional sound the BRABUS electronics specialists have developed a space sound generator. The occupants of the TESLA Roadster can choose from various simulated engine noises such as the sound of a typical V8 or a racecar. Also available are two futuristic soundscapes called ‘Beam’ and ‘Warp.’ The intensity of the sound is dependent on the power output of the electric engine at the time.

The BRABUS customization program for the TESLA Roadster also includes exclusive interior options. The list starts with scuff plates integrated into the top of the rocker panels. The scuff plates come complete with illuminated BRABUS logo.

The BRABUS upholstery shop handcrafts exclusive interior for the two-seater with utmost precision, using a combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS perforated lightweight leather and Alcantara. The vehicle floor is covered with stitched lightweight leather and adds an especially exclusive ambiance.
