Anime tiger Tesla Model S shows up in Japan
Modified EV Includes Eyes, Ears, Tail and Smile
The Tesla, first seen a few years ago, was spotted outside of an office complex in Kobe, Japan, and was committed to posterity in a 46-second video now posted on YouTube. The black-and-yellow Model S was part of a local educational program that included the Shimajiro series, which debuted in 1993 and ran for almost 15 years.
And ferocious performance be damned, this Tiger-themed Tesla looks downright cuddly. The sedan includes a smiley face and two saucer eyes on the grille of the Model S's "frunk," a pair of "ears" near the windshield and, yes, a tail sticking out of the trunk. Check out the video above and prepare to be charmed.
