The new Tesla Model S Plaid electric car set a world record in a quarter mile or 402 m race, covering this distance in 9.2 seconds.

Tesla officially states that the Tesla Model S Plaid has a top speed of 320 km / h, accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 1.99 seconds and has a range of up to 624 km.

Automotive columnist Jay Leno has confirmed that the quarter mile record of 9.2 seconds is the official and endorsed representative of the accredited body. Tesla Model S Plaid car accelerated to 244.6 km / h during this time.

It is worth noting that there are only a few supercars in the world that will cover this distance in less than 10 seconds, but among them there is definitely not a single four-door family sedan. The Bugatti Chiron Sport completed this distance in 9.4 seconds, the Porsche 918 Spyder took 9.7 seconds, the McLaren P1 took 9.8 seconds, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and McLaren 720S finished in 9.9 seconds.

As Electrek notes, the new record makes the Tesla Model S Plaid the fastest quarter-mile production car ever.
