Tuning company Brabus has teamed up with German electricity company RWE to create a ‘Green’ package for the Tesla Roadster.

The package includes a quick charging station for the owner’s garage and more than 18,500 miles worth of electric power, courtesy of RWE: this means that the Tesla Roadster can be fully charged in around six hours for an operating range of up to 220 miles.

Exterior features include carbonfibre splitter, spoiler, LED daytime running lights and 18-inch front and 19-inch rear Monoblock S alloy wheels. On the inside, the interior can be specified in a combination of perforated leather and Alcantara and even with a leather covered floor.

As with Brabus’s previous Tesla examples, the Roadster features sound synthesiser, which can replicate the grunt of a V8 engine, a race car or two futuristic soundscapes, according to the company.

Giving an electric car the sound of a V8 is the same as food pretending to be meat made out of Quorn.

Just wrong.

Free energy with your road car, sounds like some lateral thinking, this is just the thing needed for such a new technology.

Mind you, there is something faintly amusing about all that effort going into making a car fly into the horizon ghostly silently only to add a box of hi-fi tricks that causes it to sound like any other car.

Oh don't worry. I am sure some Eurocrat will put a stop to that. Afterall it could almost be enjoyable and "allowed" noises will consist of beeps or birds tweeting.......
