After making numerous claims that the launch date for the Model S is June 22nd, it has become apparent that some of Tesla’s customers have benefited from an early deliver, receiving the car at least two weeks before the official date.

The car is now owned by Steve Jurvetson, who is Managing Director of a venture capital firm based in Menlo Park, California. It also seems to be a higher spec car, as it features the ‘Tesla Multi-Coat’ exterior finish in Signature Red and a bootlid spoiler, which tell us that it’s either the ‘Signature’ or ‘Signature Performance’ model, so the car cost at least €71,700 ($89,400), factoring in the extra €1,200 ($1,500) for the special paint. It seems that it also has a panoramic or blacked out roof, and the 21-inch ‘Silver’ rims thus ruling out the possibility of a low spec car – this is a top-of-the-range version of the Model S.

We genuinely look forward to the official release of the car and the first driving impressions, as we’ve waited a long time to see it in action, and properly so!
