Today we have for you a premiere! Brabus, the well-known tuner specialized in Mercedes-Benz vehicles released the first tuning package for an electric car, the Tesla Roadster.
The new vehicle that will make its official debut at the 2008 Essen Motor Show comes with a interesting space sound generator, a system that gives the driver and the co-passenger a chance to choose from several simulated engine sounds including that of a typical V8 combustion engine, a racecar engine and two futuristic soundscapes named "Beam" and "Warp".
The volume of the sound is strictly related to the power output of the electric motor.
The new vehicle comes with a new set of Brabus Monoblock S light-alloy wheels in size 7Jx18 in front and in size 8.5Jx19 in back, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Nero high-performance tires which deliver a minimum rolling resistance.
Brabus also improved the looks of this electric vehicle by adding a carbon-fiber front lip spoiler, a set of daytime running lights (activated with the keyless fob or by pulling a door handle), a new set of matte-white surrounds for the headlamps, carbon-fiber air inlets, a new rear wing and a rear diffuser (both made out of casrbon-fiber).
