The top-of-the-line Tesla Model X will cost you $132,000

If you want Tesla's new SUV with every option you can throw at it, it'll cost you.

Tesla sent out online configurators for its Model X Signature Series, a limited run first edition model with nearly option, to customers this week. Customers began posting screenshots to the Tesla Motors Club forum early Tuesday.

The screenshots posted reveal a variety of new details about the Model X, including the fact that the top level Signature Series will cost $132,000. The Signature Series comes with nearly everything Tesla offers, with Ludicrous Mode, a towing package and a Subzero Weather package optional.

With all three option packages selected, the price rises to $143,750.

Ludicrous Mode brings the 0-60 mph acceleration time to just 3.2 seconds from 3.8, a figure that's frankly ludicrous for an SUV. The production Model X will also feature Falcon Doors, which open up and slightly out with sensors to ensure they aren't dinged up against low ceilings.

Unlike the Model S, the third-row seats in the Model X will face forward and are advertised as being able to fit two adults. The third row in the Model S faces backwards and isn't suitable for full-sized adults.

The Model X Signature will also be equipped with Autopilot features like self-parking and steering within lanes, though Tesla hasn't given a definitive timeline for Autopilot's release. The feature is currently being beta tested by a handful of Model S owners.

With the 90kWh battery pack, range will be 240 miles, slightly lower than that of the Model S because of the increased weight of the SUV.

While $132,000 is an eye-watering price, it's important to note that this is the most expensive Model X

While $132,000 is an eye-watering price, it's important to note that this is the most expensive Model X, with more affordable models becoming available as production ramps up. Pricing hasn't been announced for Model Xs with smaller battery packs.

The Model X has been a very long time coming, so those who put in an early pre-order will no doubt be very excited. If you want one and haven't ordered, be prepared to wait: a tally on the Tesla Motors Club forum has nearly 20,000 U.S. pre-orders recorded.
