Italy-based luxury design studio ARES recently built a one-off Tesla Model S convertible for a customer. To make this a reality, they had mechanics remove the roof, rear doors and the B-pillars to facilitate longer front doors. Next, Centro Stile had to design a new rear bonnet with plenty of space for the roof when it’s stowed away in open-top mode. Finishing things off, the team added a carbon fiber body kit.
Maintaining structural integrity wasn’t the easiest of tasks, but their engineers reinforced the chassis by strengthening the side members, beneath the cockpit as well as the rear seat area. The luxury doesn’t stop there, as when you step inside, you’ll notice that the seats and other interior parts have been reupholstered in hand-stitched ice white leather, complete with orange detailing.
