Elon Musk Reveals Tesla Model S Plaid Has Become The Fastest Electric Car To Lap Nurburgring

Tesla Model S Plaid has set a new lap record for a production electric car at the Nurburgring Nordschleife racing circuit in Germany.

With the Ludicrous mode, the Tesla Model S is an extremely fast electric car. However, this wasn’t good enough for the EV. As a result, it launched the Model S Plaid model in June 2021. The Model S Plaid can tear down race tracks and deliver exciting performance.

Aside from being Tesla’s fastest car, this practical and loaded car has added a new feather to the EV maker’s cap. The car lapped the track in just seven minutes and 30.909 seconds. It had an average speed of 166.32km/h. It broke the previous record was set by Porsche Taycan in 2019 by 12 seconds.

Elon Musk Shares The News On Twitter

Taking to his Twitter account on Sept. 10, Tesla founder Elon Musk shared the details with his followers. “Tesla Model S Plaid just set official world speed record for a production electric car at Nurburgring. Completely unmodified, directly from factory,” he tweeted.

He added, “Next will be modified Plaid with added aero surfaces, carbon brakes & track tires (all things that can be done without Tesla being in the loop).”

Twitter user @AaranS5 asked Musk “When can this be available for current plaid reservation holders and owners?”

“Tesla doesn’t have the bandwidth to do it, but there are some good third party mod shops,” Musk responded.
