Tesla Model 3 Performance spiced up by Startech

Tesla Model 3 – the fastest accelerating sedan in the world. But it may not look like one. The elegant and understated sedan can sprint from standstill to 100km/h in just 3 seconds in the top-spec Model 3 Performance guise, thanks to dual electric motors and high performance batteries. Unlike other sports sedan though, the electric sedan has no fins, scoops or spoilers.

But that can all change with the help of tuner Startech. First up, the Startech bodykit includes a completely redesigned front bumper with aggressive detailing that also retains all sensors and systems for semi-autonomous driving and park distance control. The vanilla stock rear bumper has also been been replaced with a new pumped up bumper complete with rear diffuser.

Elsewhere, a three-part rear spoiler spices things up further in the rear, while new side skirt attachments add to its attitude.

Wrapping up the look is a set of 20-inch Monostar M rims in black and polished spokes. They measure 9×20 at the front and 10.5×20 in the rear, wrapped in 245/35 ZR 20 rubber at the front and 285/30 ZR 20 in the rear.

Giving it the hunkered down look is a set of lowering sport springs which lower the electric sedan by some 40mm all around.

Adding to its sporty looks are finer details such as the blacked out window frame, body colour-coded door handles, and carbon-fibre side mirror housings.

On the inside, exclusive personalisation is available, with the tuner able to offer the finest leather and Alcantara upholstery and headliner in any desired colour and pattern. Carbon fibre trim inserts can also be featured on the steering wheel, door cards and dashboard.

The Tesla Model 3 Performance features dual electric motors – one at each axle – affording all-wheel drive, plus the high capacity battery pack. It develops a combined output of 335kW and a staggering 638Nm of torque.
