Next up from Ares Design, a Tesla Model S Roadster
Can’t wait for Elon’s new Roadster? Dany Bahar will chop the roof off your saloon
More renderings of future products from Ares Design have landed on the internet. The Modena-based coachbuilder fronted by Dany Bahar and already mooting a retro Ferrari 412-inspired GTC4 Lusso and reborn DeTomaso Pantera is now mulling a more modern-looking product. It’s a drop-top Tesla Model S.
Interestingly, Ares has chosen to brand it the Tesla Model S ‘Roadster’, not ‘Cabriolet’ or ‘Convertible’. But don’t be confused – this has nothing to do with Tesla’s own plans for a 250mph, 0-60mph in 1.9sec Roadster.
Ares’s drawings point to a rebodied rear half of the Model S saloon, minus two doors, a roof (of course), and featuring a double-bubble buttress arrangement. It also looks like it’s grown some altered bumpers with sportier addenda.
A price, you say? An arrival date? Unknown, we’re afraid. But this does beg a question: how will the quietness of EVs affect our enjoyment of the open-top cars of tomorrow?
