Brabus reveals ultra-exclusive Tesla Roadster Sport Green Package

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 8, 2010

Brabus is now offering the ultra-exclusive Tesla Roadster Sport Green Package. The German tuner and manufacturer has turned its attention to the electric sportscar instead of petrol-burning performance cars. In fact, Brabus was the first to offer customization of the Tesla Roadster.

The package features a quick charging station for the customer’s garage, 30,000 kilometers (18,641 miles) worth of eco-electricity with which to run it and a one-year unlimited-use pass at all public RWE charging stations.

For now, the vehicle is only being offered in Germany and there are currently no plans to expand to other countries.

Brabus chose an approach that’s different from their standard one as it has noticed that what customers require is faster charging and not only an improved performance from their EV.

The RWE-Brabus quick charging station charges the open-top roadster in less than six hours, providing an operating range of 350 km (220 miles).

The appearance of the electric sportscar was also changed by refining the front fascia with a particularly light carbon-fiber front lip and LED daytime running lights incorporated into the front grille.

At the sides of the car, there are underfloor ‘Space Lights,’ which are activated with the keyless fob or by opening a door. At the rear, the BRABUS rear wing and the Brabus rear diffuser can be seen.

These are both made from lightweight high-strength carbon fiber and its round taillights are made more obvious with color-coordinated applications.

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

Truly clean driving fun: The TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package from the BRABUS Zero Emission business division and its cooperation partner RWE, one of the world's largest producers of electricity, redefines the sports car. The exclusive BRABUS customization program for the first electric production sports car includes the RWE-BRABUS high-tech quick charging station for the customer's garage and environmentally friendly RWE Eco Electricity for 30,000 kilometers (18,641 miles). Also included is a one-year RWE car electricity pass for free use of all public RWE charging stations.

Innovative ideas have fueled the success of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) for more than three decades. BRABUS Zero Emission works on eco-friendly vehicle concepts. In customizing the TESLA Roadster the team of engineers, designers and marketing specialists goes beyond just refining the vehicle. The decision to buy this premium electric sports car is even easier to make if customers have their own powerful charging stations at home.

That's why the RWE-BRABUS high-tech quick charging station is included in the TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package. The purchase price includes the professional installation of the stylish high-tech charger in the customer's garage. The quick charger is three times faster than charging the two-seater at a normal household power outlet and environmentally friendly RWE Eco Electricity for the first 30,000 kilometer (18,641 miles) is free. In less than six hours the open-top eco sports car is fully charged for an operating range of some 350 km (220 miles).

Eco-friendly power is available away from home as well. The Green Package also includes a one-year pass for free use of all public RWE charging stations.

The TESLA Roadster Sport BRABUS Green Package also comes with exclusive equipment. It includes an even more spectacular appearance. To give the mid-engine sports car an even more striking face the BRABUS designers refine the front fascia with an especially light carbon-fiber front lip and LED daytime running lights integrated into the front grille.

The sides of the TESLA are refined with futuristic BRABUS underfloor 'Space Lights.' They are activated with the keyless fob or by opening a door.

In the rear the BRABUS rear wing and the BRABUS rear diffuser draw the eye's attention. Both are made from lightweight yet high-strength carbon fibers. The round taillights are emphasized with color-coordinated applications.

BRABUS fulfills any color request on the electric sports car. The palette ranges from conventional metallic and non-metallic paints in any color imaginable to matte paints and effect paints with genuine crystals.

A custom-tailored BRABUS tire/wheel combination provides better 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 the rear. The matching high-performance tires in sizes 215/35 ZR 18 in front and 255/30 ZR 19 on the rear axle were selected specifically for their low rolling resistance.

Innovative ideas have fueled the success of BRABUS for more than three decades. With its tuning program for the TESLA Roadster the company from Bottrop also addresses an issue often criticized in electric cars: The engine sound. To lend the two-seater are more exciting sound the BRABUS electronics specialists developed a space sound generator. The crew onboard the TESLA Roadster can select from various engine sound simulations such as the sound of a typical V8, a racecar or two futuristic soundscapes called Beam and Warp. The sound intensity is dependent on the respective power output of the electric motor.

The BRABUS customization program for the TESLA Roadster also includes exclusive options for the interior. It begins with scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo that are integrated into the top of the rocker panels.

The company upholstery shop meticulously creates exclusive interiors for the two-seater by hand. The interiors are crafted from especially soft and durable BRABUS perforated lightweight leather and Alcantara. An additional highlight is the backstitched lightweight leather that covers the vehicle floor.
