Teslas are the ultimate luxury car, but they’re not cheap to build.
If you’ve got a lot of spare cash to spend on your car, there’s a very good chance you’ll want to build your own, and it’s easy.
Read more: The best cars to buy online Teslas have been around for decades, but it’s only recently that they’ve become the norm.
It’s a lot cheaper than building one yourself, but there’s still a lot to learn about building them, so we’ve broken it down for you to make sure you’re up to the task.
Find out what you need to know to build a Teslas from the experts.
How do you build a car?
Buying a car is about getting everything right: how much money you’re willing to spend, what kind of car you want, and how much space you want in the car.
You might want to look into the best cars for sale online first, or find a local dealership to shop around with.
How much does it cost?
You can build your car with a few hundred pounds if you’re in the UK.
That’s probably not enough for the basics like brakes and suspension, and you’ll need to invest in a lot more.
If it’s more than £100,000, you might want a larger car or SUV.
However, if you want something like a hatchback, there are more affordable options out there.
What kind of body kit should I get?
Most Teslas come with a fully integrated, customised body kit.
You can either buy the kit individually, or you can purchase one separately for £35 to £50.
If this kit is included, it’s usually going to cost more.
Some kits will require the car to be built with ABS, but ABS is optional.
Some kit manufacturers will sell a fully automatic transmission, which is more suitable for people who want to drive with only a steering wheel.
If your car is fitted with a V6 engine, you’ll probably need a petrol engine, too.
How does it look?
Most kits include a paint scheme, and some will even come with some sort of spoiler, which adds to the look of the car if you don’t want to go for an all-weather look.
However it looks, if your car doesn’t come with an interior, you can usually buy a custom-made one to use as a base.
How long does it take to build it?
Depending on your budget, it might take around a year to build and then take a few months to test drive.
If that’s the case, you may want to consider getting the car fitted with ABS.
How fast will it go?
Depending how much you invest in the kit, it may take a year or two to build, which may or may not include testing.
Buying it with ABS isn’t as simple as buying a kit and a paint job.
You’ll need a proper trailer to get your car up and running, and if you buy one that’s fitted with an automatic transmission or a V8, you should get a kit that has both a manual and an automatic gearbox, too, too!
Is it safe?
Teslas can have some serious problems, especially if they’re driven too much.
If there’s any damage to the car, or it’s damaged beyond repair, you could end up with damage to your warranty and potentially end up paying a lot for your car.
If the kit is used as a car, it should be safe for your driving, too: it should only cause you serious problems if it’s not properly cared for.
It should also be safe to drive if you drive in a safe and controlled environment.
Is it possible to build one yourself?
Yes, it is.
You’re going to need to build something like an SUV, a hatch, a wagon, or even a small car, which are all similar in size, but with different requirements.
However the kit itself is very easy to do.
Buys from car dealers will usually start at around £70, while those from specialist kit builders will run around £60.
You could also get a build by someone who knows their way around a car.
