When you drive a $100,000 car, you have dozens of fantastic options — supercars, limo’s, SUVs, you name it. But once you are hooked on the spooky-fast Tesla Model S, it is hard to go back to a regular 911 or AMG.
But how to update the Model S details to match the coolness of other cars that can hit 60-mph in under four seconds?
The Model S just needs a few tweaks to dramatically up its style and road stance. Larte Design’s new bodykit elements create a fairly stunning transformation via just a dozen pieces.
The front bumper is the most striking upgrade, and looks soooo much better than the stock vehicle, we’d say it is a definite must-have. A new shape for the main grille graphic has some jagged new edges, while the Larte grille/bumper piece also has some depth via carved grey elements and traditional supercar intakes. This helps correct the Tesla’s bizarre glass-front nose appearance. As cool as the Model S is, supercar buyers need new hotness to stay interested.
These pieces from Larte Design are offered individually with shipping worldwide, or you can have your Tesla upgrades at the Larte USA HQ in So-Cal.

Tesla Model S is a unique car that generates great public interest. This is the first full-fledged electric vehicle in the premium segment with extraordinary power and speed, maneuverability and safety, meeting all environmental standards. This is the car of the future – already available today!Myths and legends about the inventor and brilliant engineer Nikola Tesla gave rise to numerous puz-zles in the 20-th century, which he was directly or indirectly involved in.The studio’s team embarked on the project of creating a new image of the electric vehicle.
This was a challenge and, at the same time, a powerful positive impetus, inspiring the designers to find a perfect solution.Paying tribute to the famed inventor Nikola Tesla, who has been named the Master of Lightning, Larte Design engineers have created lightning-like clear lines of the Tesla S Larte design to highlight the sporty nature of this superb vehicle. They have also developed new interior features and installed large forged wheels. The integrated electronic sound demonstrating the unbelievable 700 horsepower, will definitely increase the safety of all road users and give this supercar a worthy soundtrack to match its great looks.
All parts of the tuning kit are made of light and strong carbon fiber reinforced plastic as well as com-posite materials based on basalt fiber, which allowed a significant reduction of the car weight.Basalt fiber has a higher strength-to-weight ratio, which makes outer parts of the car (bumpers, spoilers, etc.) stronger and lighter. Materials made of basalt fiber have higher impact resistance and toughness, as well as shock-absorbing characteristics. Due to such impressive properties, basalt fiber is used to manufacture bulletproof vests.
These materials are also widely spread in the aviation and space industry. This is extremely important for production of car components ensuring safety in case of a crash. Furthermore components made of basalt fiber are resistant to severe natural conditions: moisture, salt solutions, alkali and acids. The use of such materials is becoming even more relevant due to the introduction of new standards for the use of fire-resistant and non-toxic materials in the car industry in the USA.
Close attention to details, craftsmanship, pureness and accuracy of lines and surfaces turn the car into a real eye-catcher, expressing the individuality of its owner.
