Brooks Weisblat decided to visit Lamborghini Broward in Florida to show a friend who works there how fast the Model S Plaid is. Ironically aside (the man sells Lamborghinis and Bugattis for a living), he happily agreed to take a ride in the Plaid for the first time.
Two more of Brooks’ friends have come, one of whom appears to be UFC welterweight fighter Diego Sanchez. The other owns an 8-second McLaren 720S, Ferrari 488 Pista, and Lambo Aventador SVJ, so he certainly knows a thing or two about ridiculously fast cars.
Before hopping in the car, everyone commented on the forked steering wheel and how futuristic it looks, with the supercar owner also commenting on Tesla’s interior fit and finish.
Once the wheels started to spin, he also had to redefine his notions of what a fast car is after being repeatedly punched in the back by the back seat of the Model S Plaid. Brooks first showed his passengers a few rolling departures, and they were absolutely stunned by the violent acceleration felt in Drag Strip mode and later in Launch mode.
The owner of the supercar was screaming and laughing all the time, repeating several times that he must have one. Besides the entertaining part (this guy’s laugh is intoxicating), this video is really interesting because it shows the effect of Model S Plaid on people used to driving supercars and hypercars, including on the drag strip. .
If these guys are so impressed, it can be said that the average customer will be simply blown away by the performance of Tesla’s fastest car to date.
