Remember, all of the above is what you get in a stock Plaid. Those numbers are the same for the Plaid we’re here to talk about today, only this one is valued at $263,749, which is more than double the carmaker’s price. How’s that possible? Well, you’re looking at a fully loaded Plaid boasting tons of modifications made by Unplugged Performance.
The Plaid received the so-called S-APEX conversion, consisting of a carbon fiber body kit, 21-inch wheels, an air suspension, and carbon ceramic braking hardware. Inside, Unplugged went for a leather approach, and added a 17-inch infotainment screen. The yoke steering thingy is of course on deck.
You may be wondering why we’re bringing this S-APEX into the spotlight now, given how the conversion has been available over at Unplugged for a while now. Well, we do that because despite its retail value, this one can be had, if the stars align, for as little as $10, or nothing at all if someone is really, really lucky.
That’s because the Tesla Model S-APEX Plaid is part of an Omaze campaign run for the Petersen Automotive Museum. And you know how those go: you can enter for free, or donate between $10 and $150 to increase your chances.
The campaign runs until January 27, 2023, with the winner to be announced on February 22. An alternative $197,811.75 cash award is offered in case the winner doesn’t want the car.
