Is Irmscher paying tribute to Nigel Mansell with this moustachioed Tesla Model Y?
German tuner tackles the Tesla Model Y, fits an interesting fake grille…
Think of Irmscher and you’ll likely be imagining modified Vauxhalls or old-school Opel Mantas. The Irmscher i240 Dakar is a particular favourite of ours. And yet, the German tuner doesn’t actually limit itself to the works of just one manufacturer, as evidenced by its latest project – a modified Tesla Model Y.
Now, these renders are a little bit budget, but we’re loving the fake grille up front. A very classy tribute to the face fuzz of Nigel Mansell, we think you’ll agree. Plus, there’s also a full bodykit for the Model Y with a new front splitter, side skirts and a rear diffuser.
You can spec some rather garish colour combinations too, and Irmscher will fit its 20-inch ‘Heli Star’ wheels. We’re yet to see inside, but apparently the interior has been ‘tidied up’ with retrimmed seats and fancy new materials.
There’s no extra power for the Model Y (probably for the best given the Performance iteration already makes 563bhp and claims a 0-60mph time of just 3.5 seconds) and no word on how much Irmscher’s upgrades will cost, but at least they’d help you find your generic electric crossover in a car park.
