Tesla’s Model S Plaid Hits More Than 200Mph With Carbon Ceramic Brakes Installed

Owners of Model S Plaid electric vehicles can now unlock the car’s full 200Mph top speed by taking up the company’s $20,000 Carbon Ceramic Brake Kit option.

The Plaid was said to be capable of the 200Mph speed but the car was limited. Now, a video shows that the speed is unlocked by Tesla once the Carbon Ceramic Brakes are installed.

In fact, it’s reported that the Model S Plaid actually managed 217Mph.

The video comes via YouTuber Sebastian Vittel, with the driver said to have been given access to “the absolute first” Model S Plaid with the new Ceramic Brake Kit installed. The video shows the car being driven around a track in Belgium.

The driver claims that there are more videos coming, too.

First the top speed is unrestricted with that kit and i reached couples of time….350KM/H yes 350 (speedo) which is somewhere in between 320/330km/h GPS on autobahn test (video will be shared soon)

So there we have it. If you’re driving around in a Tesla Model S Plaid and want to unlock its full potential, Tesla can do that for you. Once you hand over another $20,000, that is. It’s of course unlikely that most drivers will ever get the chance to fully use all of that speed, but that probably won’t stop people from wanting it.
