    Cost?

    On one hand that's kinda cool. On the other, I feel it takes away from the minimalist interior feel.

    I think on the video I heard, although it's hard to make out, 4800 euro. I'll stick with my CCI from EVannex.

    Peace,

    Gulp, thanks. $5,500 is way above what I'd be willing to spend.

    For $5500 I'll drive around behind you and pull your cup out of a mini fridge.

    Does it come with its own strobe lights and disco ball? It's really tacky in my opinion...

    How are you going to keep it warm? Nevermind... don't answer that.

    "centre console for the transmission tunnel" - seems that transmission tunnel may hang around as a phrase after it stops having anything to do with the transmission, like "taping" something or "dialing" a number or "rolling down" a window...

    That interior is hideous. I'd pay to have it ripped out of my car.

    I like the features of the center console, but too like the minimal interior. Even if it was less expensive I don't know if I would buy it. The rest of the interior is bad IMO.

    Interior is cool, but definitely not me. Price for center is completely absurd. More power to those who has $100's to light their cigars, I guess.

    Brabus should stick to making Mercedes vehicles completely undriveable.

    Haha...nailed it.

    I hate seeing buttons; I think the Model S interior should be MORE minimalist. I'd love if if they could find a way of removing the AC vents from the Dash like they did on that Bosch self driving Tesla:

    Where would cooling/heating come from? I would think the roof would be too in your face.

    Electric heating and cooling of course. Probably Peltier.

    OMG I didn't notice that! I had my checkbook ready too, but that ruins it for me...

    If you look carefully there are vents lining the top of the dashboard fascia...it is just like those cool Dyson cooling fans...
