Jack White's Tesla Model S Is Up for Auction

The musician likes electric cars as much as electric guitars.

Rock memorabilia often ends up on a wall or shelf. But there's currently an opportunity to park a piece of rock history in your garage, because musician Jack White — best known for his success with The White Stripes — is currently auctioning off his personal 2013 Tesla Model S Performance.

This Particular Model S is a Piece of Musical History. Kinda

According to the listing on the auction website Everything But The House, White purchased the Model S new and used it as a daily driver, racking up about 47,000 miles during his ownership. Notably, the Model S wasn't just a mode of transportation for the rock star, as he also used its sound system to help mix The Raconteurs' 2019 album "Help Us Stranger."

The Model S is finished in dark green over tan leather and is also equipped with the unusual jump-seat option, which increases total seating capacity to seven. White further kitted out the electric sedan with valve-stem caps shaped like tiny grenades.

White's Model S is a P85 with rear-wheel drive and an 85-kWh battery pack that allowed for 265 miles of range when new. The electric motor was rated at 416 horsepower, good enough for a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.4 seconds, according to Tesla.

It's Pretty Good Looking (For a Ten-Year-Old Car)

The former White Stripes singer's Model S comes with an accident-free Carfax report, although the body does show the kind of wear and tear you'd expect from 10 years of use. A battery fuse warning light is lit, but the car is drivable, according to the listing. A charging cable is included in the sale.

White's Model S is located in Blue Ash, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, but is available to ship nationwide. The auction ends July 30.

If you happen to be a fan of both Jack White and EVs but can't quite swing the price tag of the Model S, you're in luck. White is also auctioning a mini electric vehicle from the 1970s that was intended to be used as a delivery vehicle for Third Man Records and later served as a decoration in the company's warehouse.
