What you are seeing is a Tesla Model S station wagon and it’s the only one that exists in the entire world. With Dutch-inspiration, Niels van Roij Design studio, working with RemetzCar Amsterdam, designed what they are calling a Model S “Shooting Brake” conversion that transforms an ordinary Model S into one that Tesla doesn’t even offer from factory. And as I stated, it’s the only one that is made and is available for purchase.
For those who do like the idea of owning a pre-facelift Tesla Model S Shooting Brake, they can own one for the mere price of €185,555 — which is about $202,000 after exchange rates. This very own is listed on jbclassiccars.com. The pricing that I’d mention are for customers outside of the European Union. And for those that are within that zone will unfortunately have to add on a 21-percent VAT (tax). This will bring the price to €224,521.55, or about a quarter million dollars.
What does a Tesla Model S Shooting Brake include anyways? Well, it’s more of the novelty of owning the only Model S wagon RemetzCar ever built, as the car itself is outdated by now. It’s based on a rear-wheel-drive 2013 Model S P85, as well as a power and battery combination (and naming convention) that Tesla no longer uses in the Model S. As of today, Tesla's lineup include Long Rang Plus and Performance trims that are all-wheel-drive. Back in the day, all-wheel-drive was symboled as “D” in the Model S.
From the front, it appears as another Tesla on the road until you see it from the rear. The wagon itself was built originally for Floris de Raadt: the owner that provided the low-mile, used Model S P85 donor car. Niels van Roil Design assisted in the design process while RemetzCar was responsible for the bodywork, including the formation of the aluminum long-roof structure. As a bonus, the build team even added a wagon feature that the factory Tesla lacked: a rear wiper. It’s out of sight as it hides beneath the Shooting Brake’s rear spoiler.
Beyond the exterior, RemetzCar even reupholstered the entire interior: added splashes of body-color green paint to the interior of the glovebox and the outside of the rearview mirror. The seats include green piping, too.
The original idea was to build 20 Shooting Brakes, but the cost and effort is simply too much. Therefore, this is the only green Model S Shooting Brake available with a price tag of $200,000.
