The World’s Only Tesla Wagon For Sale
How to jump behind the wheel of this truly bespoke offering.
You’ve got a Tesla Model S P85 but you’re not entirely happy with the luggage space – what to do?
Well, if you’re Dutch automotive collector Floris de Raadt you ask designer Niels van Rooij to sketch a new shooting brake, have it produced and call it the Model SB.
Or, you could just buy the above, seeing as it’s now up for sale.
Currently up for grabs at Dutch car broker JB Classic Cars, the unique four-wheel offering with a slew of bespoke upgrades (inside and out) will set you back $313,700 (plus ONC). It lands with 60,000km on the clock and delivers 314kW and 600Nm of torque on a range of 407 – 438 kilometres.
It’s a hefty amount for a shape that says ‘middle age’, especially given a 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C63 AMG S estate’s in the vicinity of $185,000, Audi’s 2019 RS4 wagon $170,000 and Porsche’s 2020 Panamera lands at $286,000.
The price point becomes even more questionable on recalling that the car was built on the Model S P85 – a model that originally hit local roads at $133,257 in the latter part of 2014.
The appeal, of course, falls to driving something completely unique. And we’re all for that.
