    P85D+? First I've heard of that? I'm assuming there's something more to it than a different badge and chrome wrap? Not sure I'm a big fan of the chrome myself.

    The chrome, maybe. The yellow-ish striping? No.

    The hell is a P85D+?!

    Did Justin Bieber finally trade in his Fisker Karma?

    The striping is reflective tape. It looks black with bare eyes but when bright and direct light hits it, it goes gold!

    Has a Tesla Founder Badge at the back as well!

    That is freakin' trippy.

    I doubt it is official. I'd bet someone had the whole thing done up including the + badge.

    Is the "yellow" striping actually reflective gold color? Doesn't seem to be captured from the one angle.

    I think the chrome look is kinda neat and interesting for a show-car, but not for a daily driver.

    Looks like something you'd see some Saudi prince hopping out of in Dubai

    I can recognize the Montreal Ferrier Service Center in those pics and the guy exiting the car is the Service Manager...

    I can just see a designer looking at this and saying, "We went through such pains to make those lines graceful, elegant, subtle, and you put reflective tape on them." To each is own.

    I think the "Tron look" is going to take off soon. I've actually seen quite a few guys do it to different cars recently. The 3M / reflective tape is an clever detail for the OP's car.
