Saleen has given us the first glimpse at its electric car development.
Making its official debut at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the Saleen Foursixteen, a heavily modified Tesla Model S P85 that will be outfitted with a full body kit and five-spoke wheels while the interior has received dark gray leather and Alcantara upholstery with red contrast stitching. The body kit will consist of a new front bumper sporting dual air dams, a carbon fiber lip spoiler, side skirts, a trunk-mounted spoiler and a rear diffuser.

Technical details on the Saleen Foursixteen weren’t revealed yet but the company is aiming to make it different than any other EV available in today’s market. Drivetrain modifications will likely make it considerably more powerful and faster than a standard Model S while carbon ceramic brakes will enhance the sedan’s stopping capabilities.
