The market for luxury electric vehicles is becoming increasingly crowded, and California-based company Tesla is pushing the envelope with an augmented version of its Model S which is being billed as the most expensive electric vehicle in the world.

Priced at a cool $205,820, the custom version of the Model S, which was released in Europe last year, features an entire range of design and performance add-ons, including a “performance plus” package comprising a fibre spoiler, red brake calipers, "smart air" suspension, high-fidelity sound system, and a panoramic sunroof.

Other notable enhancements include "GhostGold" forged wheels, a carbon-fibre body kit, a $25,000 bespoke interior featuring leather upholstery, an upgraded audio system, painted seat backs, Alcantara steering wheel and rear seat iPad entertainment hub.
