Not long after previewing its upgraded Tesla Model S, American manufacturer Saleen is continuing to test the car with it recently been spotted on track inevitably testing some of the new components.
Contrary to recent design sketches released, the Tesla Model S here remains visually stock. However, when the Saleen modified Model S is fully revealed it will feature a completely new bodykit for the all-electric sedan giving it a much more aggressive look. The new bodykit will consist of a redesigned front bumper, hood, front splitter, side skirts, rear wing, rear bumper and a prominent rear diffuser inevitably made of carbon fiber.
Thankfully, this Tesla Model S won’t simply be wearing a new bodykit. It will also incorporate a newly trimmed cabin with sports seats finished in black leather and with Alcantara accents. Contrasting red stitching will then be featured throughout the interior.
Despite all the impressive visual changes, Saleen is promising that the most significant changes are mechanical. Saleen CEO and founder Steve Saleen recently said, “As pleased as I am by the aesthetics seen in these renderings, perhaps the true Saleen mark will be best exhibited by the mechanical enhancements that will only be seen as the live vehicle hits the streets this summer.”
Two exciting bits of information to emerge alongside these images is the fact that the Saleen Model S will feature brand new Bilstein suspension while also incorporating some form of laser scanning!
