…BRABUS tuned the Tesla?

BRABUS Tesla

Being all-electric didn’t stopped BRABUS from getting their tuner hands on the new Tesla, but is did stopped them from making changes to the drivetrain, suspension, or even a majority of the body panels.

Instead what they focused on was gadgets and gizmos to add to the already gadget and gizmo filled ride.

Changes include a “space sound generator” that gives you the sound of a simulated V8, simulated race car, or two “futuristic soundscapes” named ‘Beam’ and ‘Warp’ when you mash the go pedal, “space lights” (better known as an underbody kit), a new rear spoiler and rear diffuser, front lip and integrated daytime running lights (stolen from Audi), and a custom-tailored BRABUS interior and tire/wheel combo.

Apparently BRABUS felt that the Tesla was some sort of sacred ground, because this is definitely the lightest hand they’ve touched any car with, but hey, at least it’s a start.

Now bring on the widebody kits!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Divers Street Rods?

Ferrambo

What do you get when you combine a 1960 Rambler Wagon Estate, a wrecked 2002 Ferrari F360 drivetrain, suspension and interior, some amazing fabrication skills, and a dream? You get the Ferrambo, a project that is underway over at Divers Street Rods.

Ferrambo Composite

Though it’s currently in a pretty rough state, the end result should be amazing, with the prancing horse lending quite a few cues to the final design.

Ford GT Street Rod

If that’s not enough, Divers is also working on a ’39 street rod that they’re installing a Ford GT engine into. Amazing.
