The Tesla Model S Plaid is capable of aiming for a top speed of 322 km/h. Even a little more with a few software tweaks.

The Tesla Model S Plaid is the new queen of the clock. With its three engines for a total power of 1,034 hp, it accelerates (very) hard and can go (very) fast. If she has already had the opportunity to polygraph on drag strips, she is now aiming for her top speed.

According to the brochure, the electric sedan is capable of reaching 322 km/h. In real life, Tesla throttled the speed to a maximum of 282 km/h (175 mph) with Track Mode. If the tires no longer fuse, it would seem that the flange remains. But Ingenext wanted to go further to see if the technical sheet was just window dressing.

A Tesla Model S Plaid as fast as a McLaren P1

Known for its electronic boxes, the Canadian company decided to explore the depths of the tachometer after having blown up the electronic crutches by computer. The hardware part (if you can call it that) has also been revised with a Mountainpass Performance brake kit and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

On the runway at Trois-Rivières airport in Quebec, the electric sedan was able to reach 216 mph, or 347 km/h! In detail, the Model S achieved the 0-60 mph in 3.34 s and the 400 m in 10.20 during this exercise. Not surprisingly, since the Model S has an easier time reaching top speed outside of Drag Mode.

Ingenext says it is interested in marketing a box allowing the flanges to be jumped off. Still, those concerned should be cautious: even with aftermarket brakes, the nearly 1,000 meters of remaining bitumen were not too much to slow down the Model S according to Electrek.
