Tesla Model S Plaid Model Excellence 24K

• So, which one could be the most expensive of the lot then, you might want to ask. It is the Tesla Model S Plaid Model Excellence 24K. And by 24K here, we mean 24 carat gold. It is a car practically bedecked with 24 carat gold.

Design

• Named the “Model Excellence 24K,” this custom Tesla was made using the Model S Plaid+ as the foundation where it was then double electroplated with 99.9% gold. The gold can be found on the grille, skirts, rare-view mirror, front and rear bumper, wheels, and small areas which normally see chrome.

Performance

• Earlier this year, Tesla released a new 'Track Mode' for the Model S Plaid that pushed the top speed to 175 mph (282 km/h). As far as we know, this has been the fastest top speed a Tesla Model S Plaid or any Tesla vehicle has achieved to date.

Production

• The most expensive Tesla model currently available in the market is the Model S Plaid trim variant. The car costs you around $131,440. In comparison, the Plaid trim variant of Model X costs you approximately $127,940. When it comes to base models, Model X tops the list. Buying a Model X will cost you nearly $106,440. At the same time, the Model S has a price range of around $96,440.

• When launched, expect the 2023 Tesla Roadster to be the most powerful and expensive Tesla on the market. Though the prices aren't confirmed, the starting price of the Tesla Roadster will be around $200,000. Expect to shell out some more dollars if the company plans to launch a high-performance trim of this car.
