Now Tesla has set an insane speed record

In the US, a brand new generation of Tesla Model S has been launched a while ago. The top model, Model S Plaid, is one of the world’s fastest accelerating cars. Regardless of driveline. It does the sprint from 0-100 km / h in around 2 seconds. Then we begin to approach a limit for what is practically possible for a full-fledged family car, of which this is, after all, talk.

Tesla has also gone out and said that it should be capable of a top speed of over 320 km / h (200 mph).

But so far, Tesla has not opened up to this possibility in its cars. However, a Canadian tuning company has done …

Want speed!

Tesla has chosen to withhold the possibility of such a top speed, allegedly because they want to get specially adapted tires and brakes in place first.

But the tuning specialist Ingenext has now “hacked” the car, and opened up for this possibility. It’s basically a software update.

They took the car – which was also equipped with new Michelin Pilot Sport tires and brakes from Mountainpass Performance – to Trois-Rivières airport in Quebec – and gave full throttle.

Those who bought this car a few years ago did something smart

The video from the drive shows that the car seemed to have more to go on, when the driver let go of the gas at almost 350 km / h.

Almost 350 km / h

According to the American website Eltrec, Ingenext managed to reach an insane 346 km / h. And there was nothing to suggest that the car had no more to go on, when the driver lifted his foot off the accelerator pedal.

Tesla, for its part, recently released a software update that increased the top speed from 260 to 280 km / h, writes Carscoops.

They have also made it possible to have the car delivered with ceramic brakes.

Set records

There is no doubt that a lot has happened in a short time with Tesla. It is not more than four years since Musk himself took a sleeping bag and slept by the assembly line, while his employees fought against the clock to solve the problems.

If we move forward to the first quarter of this year, the situation is completely different. Production of the Model 3 has long been on track. Model Y has arrived and is a great success. And the numbers Tesla is now presenting are impressive.

In the first quarter of this year, they set a record for revenues, profits – and the number of cars produced.

Extra impressive

Tesla ended up with a profit of a solid 31.6 billion kroner. This is the best quarterly result in the company’s history. They produced and delivered 310,048 cars during this period. This is an increase of a whopping 68 percent, compared with the same quarter last year.

Here in Norway, Tesla is comfortably ahead of everyone else after the first half of the year – on track to become Norway’s best-selling car brand. Just like they were last year.

It is the newcomer Model Y who pulls the load in Norway.

Now that we have access to the new Model S and Model X, Tesla is very reluctant to inform about.
