Tesla's Model S Plaid has broken yet another record, this time around Laguna Seca
First the quarter-mile, now Laguna Seca. It is clear Tesla is chases some serious goals.
Earlier on, it was reported that Tesla's Model S Plaid had broken the world record for the fastest quarter-mile time, setting a mind-boggling time of 9.23 seconds. However, now the car has been spotted at Laguna Seca Raceway chasing yet another record.
A video shared on Twitter by The Kilowatts shows a Model S Plaid prototype racing around Laguna Seca and has set an unconfirmed time of 1:30:000. This is a staggering time and if Tesa continues to do it faster, it could be a production car lap record.
As you can see from the video, this Model S appears to be wearing a few aero modifictions including a rear wing for added downforce. We don't know how much quicker it will be able to go, but achieving 1:30:XXX at this track is seriously impressive in a car which weighs over two tonnes.
