Tesla Model S Foursixteen by Saleen

I love any car wearing a Saleen badge, but I never hoped to see it on a Tesla. This is the Saleen-tuned Tesla Model S, dubbed as the Foursixteen and starting at $152,000 – including the donor Tesla Model S P85. This means that Saleen will work their magic for about $57,430, but what about the results?

There’s a pretty cool paint job, aerodynamic aggressiveness which includes a new front fascia, perforated leather, carbon fiber and so on. The Tesla still develops 416 horsepower and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque, but Saleen believes it matter how that power is delivered. The suspension is the track-calibrated Saleen designed S4 setup, featuring monotube coilovers; adding to that are massive alloy wheels and 14-inch rotors.

Also worth mentioning is that the all-electric drivetrain now includes an 11.39:1 final gear ratio, which translates into faster sprints, and a locking differential Saleen calls “MAXGRIP.” Feel free to order your own, with deliveries expected to take 6 to 8 weeks and 4 years or 50,000 miles of warranty.
