YESLAK - Premium Tesla Accessories

Many people were eagerly anticipating Tesla's announcement of the new Model 3 Performance, commonly referred to as Model 3 Ludicrous due to its new badge, on Saturday, April 20th (4/20). However, the day and the weekend passed without any news from Tesla. Although no official announcement was made, a prototype with manufacturer plates was spotted in an underground garage in California on Sunday, giving us a first close-up look at this new electric sedan before its official debut.

A Tesla aficionado has provided the first thorough look at the highly anticipated Model 3 Performance, formerly known as "Ludicrous." He shared a video demonstration of the car on X. Recorded in a parking garage in Santa Monica, the video highlights the eagerly awaited enhancements and features of the car, displaying its aesthetic and functional improvements.

Detailed Exterior Upgrades

The new Model 3 Performance showcases significant advancements in its exterior design. The vehicle, boasts a newly designed front splitter that sets it apart from its predecessors. Additionally, it features a sleek Ultra Red paint finish and a reimagined rear spoiler. Unlike the flat designs of earlier models, the new spoiler adopts an angular approach with a real carbon fiber finish and novel bumps at each end, aiming to improve the car’s aerodynamics significantly.

The redesigned 20-inch forged wheels with removable aero inserts not only enhance the car's sleek look but also promise to improve its aerodynamic efficiency. The distinct "Ludicrous" badge, now set against a dark blue background, is prominently displayed, affirming the vehicle's high-performance credentials.

Online rumors have widely suggested that the new Model 3 might be named Ludicrous, primarily because of a new badge on the rear trunk lid (the source code from the configurator suggests they will retain the original name). Although this badge has appeared on a few other test vehicles, this is our first detailed view of it. The back of the vehicle reveals the Ludicrous badge set against a dark blue background, suggesting a subtle yet distinct styling choice that could be best complemented by a blue exterior paint finish.
