Tesla Model S Plaid has set another world record. A few days ago, the car completed the quarter mile at World Wide Technology Raceway in an impressive 9.08 seconds, breaking its previous record.

Tesla Model S Plaid continues to amaze with its performance and confirm its resounding reputation as the fastest production car in the world. The car dominates drag strips around the world, leaving competitors like Nissan GT-R, Porsche Taycan Turbo S, and other big names in the dust. After a short time, Model S Plaid reminded us again of its dominance, breaking its own record. This time it blazed through the quarter-mile in an impressive 9.081 seconds! Although it seems that even this record will soon again be broken by itself.

The Tesla Model S Plaid set a new world record on July 24 at the World Wide Technology Raceway in St. Louis. The Midnight Silver Metallic Plaid hit the quarter-mile finish line in just 9.081 seconds at a trap speed of 154.10 mph. That means the car broke the record set by Jay Leno in June of 9.247 seconds at a trap speed of 152.16 mph. Thus, Model S Plaid’s record was improved by 0.166 seconds, which is a significant difference. At the moment, other details of this race remain unknown.
