    Uh, beauty is apparently in the eye of the beholder.

    Seems to have blocked the air intakes... overheat much?

    Looks like show cars. The extent of their driving is probably on/off the transport trailer.

    Well that's a relief. Mind you, the owner in the photo looks pretty proud of his creation.

    I can't even tell it's a Model S! LOL

    It could be an improvement on the nose cone. :)

    Click through to the other pictures. Crazy! But "Monster" Tajima is a driving god.

    The guy in the photo is not the owner, but rather 'Monster' Tajima. He won Pikes Peak 6 times – 7, if you include winning the electric class this year – and was the first to beak the 10-minute mark in 2011. He also owns Tajima Motor Corporation.

    Don't know if he has a Model S in his garage but it wouldn't surprise me.

    If you read the article (or at least skim it like I did), I can see why he's smiling. It's not like he's promoting it as a daily driver customization.
