The electric sedan reaches its electronically limited top speed in just 14 seconds.
The Tesla Model S is fast in any configuration, but we all know about the Plaid. For those who either forgot or aren’t up-to-speed on 1980s pop culture, plaid is a reference to the comedy flic Spaceballs, referencing a speed faster than ludicrous, which was the range-topping mode for earlier Teslas (also borrowed from Spaceballs).
But you aren’t interested in that. You want to see a car go from a dead stop to 166 mph in 14 seconds. For that, just click play on the above video but don’t bother with the sound. It’s an eerily silent surge of acceleration punctuated by wind noise and perhaps a touch of whine from the electric powertrain.
