The kit makes Tesla's crossover more aerodynamic, while adding a dash of sportiness.
German tuner Novitec has developed a body kit for the Tesla Model X. It's not the first company to tune the X, but its kit is arguably the best-looking one on the market.
Novitec began designing the aerodynamic components by putting the crossover in its wind tunnel. After examining the data it gathered, it developed a front splitter, side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a spoiler for the hatch. All of the components are made out of carbon fiber to avoid adding too much weight.
The sportier look is accented by 22-inch wheels wrapped by low-profile tires. Behind the wheels -- which are wider out back than up front -- are upgraded carbon ceramic brakes that reduce the X's stopping distance.
Pictures of the interior haven't been published. The tuner explains on its website that it can create a one-of-a-kind, custom-designed interior using leather and/or Alcantara upon request.
Novitec hasn't made any modifications to the X's all-electric drivetrain. Similarly, the company hasn't revealed what effect -- if any -- the add-ons have on range.
The brakes, the wheels, and the body kit can all be purchased separately. The brake package alone costs $28,660, while the full body kit is priced at $7,280. Finally, the wheels are priced at about $4,000 before options (such as brushed or powder-coating effects) are factored in.
