    Curious on this Brabus Tesla Roadster. I noticed they upgraded the wheels which are 5 lug and increased the wheel size. Curious how they got past the Traction Control issue here unless they matched the revolutions or some secret recipe the TC wants. The glow lights under the car and the stupid rear brabus spoiler just has to go!

    "A custom-tailored Brabus tire/wheel combination further improves handling characteristics. The two-seater is refined with weight-optimized Brabus Monoblock S light-alloy wheels in size 7Jx18 in front and in size 8.5Jx19 in back. Brabus technology partner Pirelli provides the corresponding P Zero Nero high-performance tires in size 215/35 ZR 18 in front and in size 255/30 ZR 19 on the rear axle. These tires were developed to deliver minimum rolling resistance."

    I saw this almost a year ago when I first purchased my 2.0 as I was interested in the same setup for the fog lights. I don't like the white tail light enclosures or the additional spoiler. Additional wheel options are always a plus.

    Looks great in white but don't care for the spoiler which probably doesn't provide any functional purpose at typical highway speeds.

    Looks close to it but appears to be different, the one you mentioned has the "Roadster Sport" badging which indicates its a 2.0 with the diffuser style it has. The one in this thread is a 1.5 and doesn't have the sport badging. Also the sport has the CF exposed louvers and the 1.5 does not. above. Headrest area is different, white on the 1.5 and black on the 2.0.

    OK, where did they get the 12 volt power to run this stuff without cutting into the rather fragile 12 volt system in the roadster???

    Dr Taras Roadster had an added 12V to run the added radio and noisemakers. It was located in the space below the charge port.
