That's one question you may come up with when you see this video from T Sportline that shows a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tesla/model+s/">Model S</a> with enough extras to jack its price up to $205,820. Al &amp; Ed's Autosound of West Hollywood, CA, which <a href="http://green.autoblog.com/2009/12/03/la-2009-the-worlds-most-expensive-tesla-roadster/">has a history of such things</a>, did the honors.<br /><br />So here's the recipe. You start witt the $85,900 base price for the 85 kilowatt-hour Model S. That pricetag jumps to $123,770 with goodies such as the "performance plus" set-up (including fiber spoiler and red brake calipers) for a tidy $6,500, "smart air" suspension ($2,250), "tech package" ($3,750), ultra high-fidelity sound system ($2,500), panoramic sunroof ($2,500) and 21-inch grey turbine wheels ($4,500).<br /><br />And then the fun really starts. For instance, those wheels get upgraded to "GhostGold" forged wheels for $7,500, "exterior 3M change wrap" runs $6,000, carbon-fiber body kit goes for $5,250 and the "audiophile upgrade" costs $9,500. Finally, get a load of the "bespoke" made-to-order interior upholstery. That'll run $25,000. And before you know it, you have a mean green machine that's almost twice as expensive as Justin Bieber's chrome <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/fisker/karma/">Fisker Karma</a>. And from a solvent company, no less.<br /><br />Al &amp; Ed's is no stranger to pushing Tesla EVs way out into the proverbial high-rent district. The team <a href="http://green.autoblog.com/2009/12/03/la-2009-the-worlds-most-expensive-tesla-roadster/">used the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show</a> to show off a <a href="http://autoblog.com/tesla/roadster/">Tesla Roadster</a> with about $50,000 worth of goodies were added. <a href="http://green.autoblog.com/2009/08/20/pics-aplenty-al-and-eds-autosound-upgrades-tesla-roadster-interi/">Earlier that year</a>, they customized another Roadster to include, among other things, <a href="http://autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/">Mercedes-Benz</a> leather. We've got archive coverage of those cars but we expect you'll be more interested in the new <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mDKFrSe9mc">video</a> from T Sportline of the swanky Model S <a href="/2014/03/22/worlds-most-expensive-tesla-modes-s-video/#continued">below</a>.<p><a href="http://green.autoblog.com/2014/03/22/worlds-most-expensive-tesla-modes-s-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>This is what it takes to make the world's most expensive Tesla Model S</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://green.autoblog.com/2014/03/22/worlds-most-expensive-tesla-modes-s-video/">This is what it takes to make the world's most expensive Tesla Model S</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://green.autoblog.com">Autoblog Green</a> on Sat, 22 Mar 2014 19:02:00 EST.
