As always, the finishing is exquisite.
When it comes to modifying cars, there are plenty of options out there to make your car faster and more exciting to drive. But while there are numerous avenues to explore when you want to eke more power out of your internal combustion engine, tuning of electric cars is a long way off from being a mainstream pastime. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean you have to drive around in a stock car that looks like any other EV you can find on a dealership floor. The aesthetics of the car can still be fiddled with, and Vilner is one of the best tuners out there when it comes to making an interior stunning. Just have a look at the company's latest project: a sinister Tesla Model X.
If you've been keeping an eye on the Bulgarian tuner's work, you'll know that it doesn't matter whether you've got a Ferrari or a Dodge - all the cars the firm works on end up with a sumptuous cabin. This Tesla is unlike the tuner's regular commissions, however. Generally, the designers at Vilner will consult with the owner of the car to create a bespoke cabin that reflects the requirements of said owner. But in this case, Vilner had to work in the dark, as this was a project commissioned by the owner's wife, who wanted to present the completed car as a Christmas present to her husband. We think Vilner did pretty well, especially since the owner returned to the tuner to thank the team for its work.
So what went into it? Well, there's clearly an abundance of leather, with quilted cow hide liberally applied to the door cards and seats. A sportier feel is achieved with the addition of Alcantara, which was used on the steering wheel, dashboard, and roof lining. Red contrasts give the otherwise demure cockpit a more vibrant feel, with crimson double stitching, trim accents, and seatbelt stripes. Tying everything together from the outside is a matte black finish and a red Tesla badge. While some tuners tend to go too far (Vilner is guilty of this too), this particular car has come out brilliantly. Just don't expect to pay pocket change for this level of workmanship.
