Tesla Model 3 gets snarlier with new RevoZport 3R kit

Carbon Kevlar composite panels and new wheels help Tesla's youngest EV stand out in a crowd.

From its grilleless face to its smooth bodysides and windswept greenhouse, love it or hate it, the Tesla Model 3 is a pretty clean piece of design. It's also a bit undramatic, and in some areas of the country where the EV has sold particularly well, it's also quickly becoming a bit too ordinary for some folks.

Enter RevoZport Racing Technology. Despite having specialized in tuning Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi models for years, amping up the latest Tesla is nothing new for the company. The Hong-Kong-based tuner previously tackled the Model S hatchback and Model X SUV, offering numerous different looks. This time, RevoZport is back with their latest offering, the R-Zentric Model 3R Model 3R aerokit.

Composed of carbon Kevlar composite pieces, the Model 3R kit includes subtle fender flares that add a modest 0.6 inches per side, with those arches filled out by 21-inch, 15-spoke RevoZport forged aluminum wheels (recommended size: 255/21 9J front/05/21 10.5J rear).

Available in both gloss or matte finishes, this new look is certainly more aggressive -- if a bit fussy -- thanks to its unique front splitter with endcap uprights, as well as new side skirts. However, it's arguably the rear end, with its M3R GT decklid spoiler and a massive rear apron with prominent vertical vanes that's most likely to draw attention. 

The Model 3R body kit's aggressively vaned rear diffuser is its most dramatic element.

No word yet on on if the R-Zentric Model 3R kit adds downforce or otherwise affects the performance or range of the box-stock Model 3.

The new RevoZport Model 3R treatment won't be for everyone, and that's just fine -- at a starting price of around $9,500 plus freight and installation, not everyone will be able to afford the 15-piece kit, either.
