The Tesla Model 3 is far and away the best-selling electric car in the country, making up nearly half of all US EV sales in 2019. That popularity has given rise to a massive market for Model 3 body kits and accessories targeted at owners looking to set their car apart from the pack. 

Now Startech, a sub-brand of famed Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus, is getting into the Tesla-makeover game as well, announcing a whole suite of customizations for the Model 3 that give the EV a sportier look and, according to the firm, enhance its performance.

The German firm unveiled add-ons including new wheels, faux-carbon accents, aggressive front and rear bumpers, lowering springs, and aerodynamic upgrades. It’ll also reupholster your Model 3’s interior and paint over any chrome pieces you deem too shiny. 

The entire package will be available starting in early 2021 through Startech’s worldwide dealer network and online, a spokesperson told Business Insider. Take a closer look below.
