‘They’ve gone to Plaid!’
After the show, the electric automaker let a few lucky customers test ride the car in “Plaid” mode—a faster version of the “Ludicrous” mode on the Model S and a very Muskian reference to Spaceballs.
Now, thanks to one daring driver who filmed his test ride, we have an idea of what it’s like to accelerate at breakneck speeds never before achieved by a road-ready car.
Check out this video of the Roadster going 0 to 60 in under 2 seconds. Pay close attention, because it all happens in the blink of an eye.
The folks at Electrek, an online publication that covers electric vehicles, also posted a high-speed test ride in the new Roadster, but shot with a 360-degree camera.
