The Tesla Model S Plaid on the Autobahn

What is it like to take a Tesla Model S Plaid on the German Autobahn with no speed limit? It's like rapidly accelerating to 210 km per hour and feeling pressure behind your ears with a very intense G-Force. The car is beyond ludicrous, according to Autogefuhl.

The suspension is comfortable, at the same time, there is a sporty feel, and the car effortlessly accelerates to over 200 km per hour. This is about 125 miles per hour and more and the Model S Plaid does this with no problem at all.

The car has a yoke steering wheel and accelerates extremely quickly. There is an active noise cancellation and it is nice and quiet inside the vehicle. As the car accelerates, cars that are seen behind it quickly disappear. There isn't any acoustic feedback for the acceleration like a gas motor. It's simply a quiet, electrical sound, as if someone directs you forward. It's hard to cope with it.

Even when the car is going 80 miles per hour, it can still greatly accelerate quickly to 130 miles per hour in a matter of a second. Anyone who likes acceleration will like driving the Model S Plaid on the Autobahn.

It messes with your brain how fast the car can go without making any noise. Because it is an electrical motor, you won't hear the sound of a gas engine that revs up in order to go fast.
