Most Expensive Tesla Model S in the World Costs $175,000 on eBay

So you thought that the P85D was obsolete now that Tesla Motors upgraded the Model S to P90D spec? In terms of performance, it is obsolete if you opt for Ludicrous Mode on your P90D, but in terms of opulence, this custom $175,000 Model S P85D by T Sportline is much better.

In fact, the Buy It Now price on eBay makes T Sportline's all-electric sedan the most expensive Tesla Model S we've ever heard about. According to the seller, more than $60,000 were spent on aesthetic and comfort-oriented upgrades, starting with the $999 NCGv2 nose cone grille. That's fine and all, but that's the least expensive upgrade here.

The 21-inch forged wheels and the 245/35/21 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 rubber cost $7,500. As for the exterior chrome trim, all of it is wrapped in high-quality 3M stain black vinyl for a stealthier appearance. The price for a few feet of vinyl? $1,900. What about the sporty-looking Carbon Fiber Sports Package (lip spoiler, deck lid trunk spoiler, and rear diffuser)? That's $5,250.

From a subjective point of view, the exterior looks like a million bucks on wheels, but the interior is miles more impressive. Take the upholstery as a prime example of what all that money was spent on: "The complete interior from the dash down has been reupholstered using authentic Bentley linen color leather with black leather trim and black stitching." This includes even the third-row seats. Now that's first-class comfort.

Other interior mods include embroidered Tesla Motors logos in the headrests, thicker floor mats, two-tone steering wheel wrapped in carbon fiber and Bentley linen leather, and LED mood lights installed in each door underneath the armrest. For the audiophiles, Rockford Fosgate and Alpine bits and bobs turn this P85D into a 1,300-watt music hall. An escort radar detector-laser diffuser duo round off the list of mods.
