Swissvax'ed Red TESLA Roadster

This was a fun car to detail...

The TESLA Roadster:

(Taken from TESLA MOTORS)


Chassis:
The hand-built, carbon fiber Roadster sets the mark for premium electric cars to come. The monocoque chassis, constructed of resin-bonded and riveted extruded aluminum adds rigidity and strength to the lightweight package.

Emissions:
The Roadster offers supercar performance without supercar emissions. Engineered for efficiency, the zero-emissions Roadster can drive 245 miles per charge. It plugs into nearly any outlet, anywhere in the world.


Power:
The AC induction motor and single speed gear box create instant torque from 0 rpm. Up to 295 lbs-ft of torque and 288 horsepower are produced as the car smoothly accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Handling:
The electric powertrain enables unprecedented responsiveness. The Roadster becomes an extension of the driver and reacts in an instant. The optional custom-tuned suspension allows the driver to adjust the handling to their preference.


I started the morning off early, as we had to drive and hour from Miami to the Ocean Reef Club in order to detail this car. The detail job took about 15 hours completed in a single day.



It was quite cool when i first drove the car out of the garage when the Tesla Roadster asked me for a PIN number to start the car...


Anyways, this car had about 1,200 miles on it and had yet to be cleaned. The owner wanted me to make it as perfect as possible, so I decided that Swissvax products would be the way to go for this car.
