Tesla produces truly cool and high-end cars that can surprise motorists with their performance. The Tesla Model X Plaid SUV accelerates from 0 to 60 mph faster than cars in Formula 2, Formula E, and Formula 1 and rides 1/4 mile faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
The Tesla Model X Plaid is a unique vehicle. Although a family SUV, it has the highest performance. According to the description on the company's website, the car has a top speed of 163mph, accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, and hits a 1/4 mile in 9.9s. But, the company probably indicated modest figures, because the experience of owners shows higher performance.
dragtimescom/Instagram, via @SawyerMerritt/Twitter, shared a video of Model X Plaid running the 1/4 mile. According to the video, the car delivered an impressive performance, covering the stint in just 9.83 seconds with a trap speed of 146.68 mph. So the $126,490, 5,390 lb family SUV outperformed the $2,400,000 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in the 1/4 mile, which was able to register a time of 9.9 seconds with a trap speed of 148.5 mph. It is truly amazing!
In addition, in January, Tesla Model X Plaid was tested for overclocking and again surprised with the result. Vehicle Virgins/YouTube ran some tests on Model X Plaid under ordinary driving conditions. The car was tested on a city street, with a battery charge of 65%. The SUV shocked everyone when it delivered an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph of 2.3 seconds, which is definitely an incredible result. It is also faster than the acceleration of cars from 0 to 60 mph in the most popular races such as Formula 2 (2.9 seconds), Formula E (2.8 seconds), Formula 1 (2.6 seconds).
