Custom automotive shop Zero to 60 Designs created an interesting Tesla Model S they like to call “Zero TS.”

At this year’s SEMA show, custom shop Zero to 60 Designs brought the heat with yet another one of their eye-catching designs. This time, it was a Tesla Model S that took crowds by storm; they call it the Zero TS.

The car has been completely reworked both inside and out with a stunning flat-grey paint job from PPG with Solar Gard that costs a whopping $40,000.

The front and rear bumpers have been replaced with more aggressive designs that incorporate carbon fiber accents. This car looks super slick with every last bit of chrome stripped away and replaced with either black or body-color accents.

The dolphin grey paint job is coated with special Solar Gard top coat that is known to protect against dints and dents. This film also helps to reduce harmful UV rays from the sun and keep the paint looking fresh at all times.

According to ABR Buzz, Solar Gard general manager Kendall Combs said:

The Zero TS truly embodies the Solar Gard brand and the vision of the company.“We believe in developing high-quality products, and the Zero TS represents the pinnacle of unmatched performance. Protecting your automotive investment is our top priority at Solar Gard, so when we started the conversation about SEMA with Kenny, there was no question the vehicle we would showcase had to be an unbelievable product.”"

To wrap up the performance look of the Zero TS, black HRE wheels were added with some Nexen tires. The brakes were also upgraded by Brembo – one of the biggest named in brake systems.

The interior of this Tesla Model S feature bright-red diamond-stitched leather that covers nearly ever surface of the carbon. The seats seem to be the ones that came from the factory, but the headrests have been embroidered with the Zero to 60 Design company logo.

Kenny Pfitzer, formerly of West Coast Customs, founded Zero to 60 Designs last year. Upon his departure from WCC, Pfitzer went on to work on hot rods with Chip Foose, as a designer and the company’s Chief Operating Officer. Many of the shop’s current employees were actually former friends and colleagues of Pfitzer.
