Unplugged Performance is unveiling its latest Tesla modification masterpiece: the 'Dark Knight.' As part of its “Complete Vehicle” program, this tricked-out Tesla Model S Plaid is a fine example of how the auto-tuning company is constantly pushing the envelope in the high-performance electric vehicle sector. From custom exterior colors to tailor-made interiors, Unplugged Performance leaves no stone unturned in transforming Teslas into high-luxury, high-performance beasts.
The heart of 'Dark Knight' is its the groundbreaking powertrain of the Tesla Model S Plaid. The car undergoes a plethora of enhancements to amplify the performance results of its 1,020 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. Ben Schaffer, CEO of Unplugged Performance, couldn't be more thrilled. He said, "With Dark Knight, we’ve set out to create the ultimate daily-driven supercar." The vehicle is not only a spectacle in raw speed but also an ode to sustainable driving, thereby appealing to enthusiasts who are eco-conscious.
What makes 'Dark Knight' truly stand out is its exterior, dominated by its lavish carbon fiber accents. The car gets a 19-piece prepreg carbon fiber widebody kit, increasing the width by 60mm and accommodating 21” lightweight UP-03 forged monoblock wheels. To push aerodynamic boundaries, the carbon fiber rocker panels come with an integrated aerodynamic bargeboard. On the collaboration front, Unplugged Performance has teamed up with Koenigsegg Advanced Manufacturing for the car's carbon fiber rear longtail spoiler. The build is completed with a sleek satin black finish and exposed carbon fiber elements.
When it comes to driving dynamics, 'Dark Knight' is no slouch. The car features an improved suspension system, including Unplugged Performance’s Sports Dynamic Lowering kit, adjustable rear sway bar, and a slew of billet aluminum adjustable control arms for precise alignment adjustments. To make the stopping as exhilarating as the going, the car is equipped with carbon ceramic brakes and, for the first time in an S-APEX, a carbon fiber brake cooling duct system.
The interior is an opulent affair that highlights the brand’s commitment to sustainable luxury. In collaboration with von Holzhausen, the cabin is adorned with striking Serrano red Banbū vegan leather across the seats, door panels, console, and dashboard. Unplugged Performance is clearly setting new industry standards with its 'Dark Knight' Model S Plaid. It exemplifies the ultimate union of power, sustainability, and individual customization. If you're looking to redefine your Tesla experience, this is where your search ends.
