Faster than a mclaren f1 on track.
this is what a tesla looks and performs like when turned up to 11.
Performance. it's in the name.
We started with a question:
What if Tesla offered a factory-built track tuned Model 3 comparable to cars like the porsche 911 gt3?
This is our answer. We quite literally took the Porsche GT3 RS 's (997) Original Equipment Michelin Cup 2 tires and beat that same GT3 RS's fastest ever recorded lap by more than 1.2 seconds, while using its own tires at Tsukuba Circuit in Japan. The Ascesnion-R tuning program has been used on multiple track record-setting Tesla Model 3's while, maintaining daily driving sensibilities. The Ascension-R utilizes our two decades of racing experience and thousands of hours of R&D to create the ultimate no-compromises completely personalized Model 3. We call it the Ascension-R.
Drive to the race track on Autopilot, destroy the competition, and drive home in comfort with the ultimate Model 3.

HOW DO WE DO IT?
Unplugged Performance thoroughly reworks the suspension with a custom race valved adjustable coilover suspension kit (street comfort valving is also possible), along with adjustable front upper control arms, adjustable rear camber arms, adjustable toe arms and 3 way adjustable front/rear sway bar set with uprated bushings.
More comfortable than stock when set to soft, yet, on track performance is so dialed in that it managed to impress our development driver Randy Pobst when turned up to firm, the Unplugged Performance Coilovers offer a wide spectrum of adjustment for both height and damping is engineered to satisfy street and track uses. Created by a dream team of top suspension engineers from motorsports to Unplugged Performance specs.
The highly adjustable suspension and handling capabilities pairs with (optional) massive 6 piston 15.5” uprated carbon ceramic brakes and competition brake pads, fitted with stainless lines and high performance fluid.
BESPOKE, ULTRA-LIGHT WHEELS & STICKY TIRES
Unplugged Performance 18, 19, or 20” wheels shod with Michelin Cup 2 tires up to 305 wide are then fitted. These ultra-lightweight yet ultra-strong wheels are custom machined out of 6061-T6 billet APP forgings- the same forgings used by Koenigsegg and Lamborghini- and every set is FEA optimized and specifically engineered to the owner's desired specifications. Wheel weights are a world leading 19.6lbs; in 20 inch sizes; and are even lighter in smaller diameters. As the wheels are truly one-off custom made, the car's name can be incorporated into the wheel and any color can be selected for an extra level of customization.
To enhance the Model 3's performance on and off the track, we started with our CFD-tested Ascension components, and refined that even further with the addition of an all new Ascension-R wing.
Developed in CFD and designed from scratch exclusively for the Model 3, we tapped aerodynamics legendary producer Voltex Racing Suzuka in Japan to produce each wing by hand.
Further downforce oriented aerodynamics are coming and will be optional additions to new and existing Ascension-R builds.
BESPOKE RACING BUCKET SEATS & HARNESSES
WE'RE GOING PLAID.
The enhanced cornering capability of the Ascension-R meant that the OEM seats simply weren’t up to the task of keeping a person in the seat under hard cornering, so we’ve replaced the factory seat with proper racing buckets that’ll keep you planted in place even in Laguna Seca’s infamous corkscrew turn. The racing seats accommodate the Unplugged Performance x Willans FIA certified racing harnesses to ensure the proper racing setup. The harnesses can then be put away for street use and a regular 3 point seat belt is always retained as well.
Inspired by Elon Musk’s love of the movie Space Balls, we've highlighted the only thing faster than Ludicrous Speed - Plaid - as part of our bespoke interior program for the Ascension R, with tasteful Tesla red-gray-and-white-over-black plaid inserts. For those looking for a more understated design, we can offer traditional colors as well.
Racing bucket seats are optional and can be deleted or changed based on each owner's desired spec.
