    It's going to be at the Autosport Show at our National Exhibition Centre.

    That is the best looking white Tesla Roadster I have ever seen.

    I have always disliked them when they are plain. But dressed up like that looks really good.

    Does anyone know anything more? Has anything been done to increase performance over a typical Roadster, or is it just a lot of stickers and racing seats?

    They would like to take it racing, although there is no timetable for that at the moment. No word on exactly what mods have been done for performance...

    Four point harnesses? Scary stuff. In a collision, you can slide out from the harness through the bottom, it's called "submarining", and proceed to break your knees and femurs on the aluminum dash extrusion. It's fine for an HPDE track day, especially if that's the Scroth ASM harness, but too dangerous for racing.
