The right pedal abuse is pure speculation, as the truth is we had no idea what happened to this Model S Plaid in the moments prior to it being destroyed. The only thing that we know about it is that it reportedly had only 136 miles (219 km) on the odometer before the crash. We also know that it is currently being disassembled and sold for parts; well, at least the very few things that can still be saved are hitting the World Wide Web.
Since it was only shown from a few angles in the video released on Instagram earlier this week, it is impossible to enumerate all the components that will bring in a nice profit. The dual motors will, assuming that they can be saved, as they are the icing on the cake when it comes to the Tesla Model S Plaid, which runs out of breath at 200 miles per hour (322 kph).
The electric super sedan enjoys a double-digit output (1,020 hp), takes just roughly two seconds to sprint to sixty miles per hour, and does the quarter-mile in a little over nine seconds. Mounted under the floor for a low center of gravity that translates to improved handling during high-speed cornering, the 99.3 kWh battery pack enables an EPA-estimated range of 396 miles (637 km) under optimal driving conditions.
A brand-new Tesla Model S Plaid will set you back north of the $100,000 mark in the United States, though if you don't care about the mileage and the year it came to life, you could land one for far less than that. Some of the most affordable examples currently listed for grabs can be bought from just over $70,000 stateside. At the other end, you will have to fork out in the region of $120,000-$125,000 for the best copies.
Now, it's always sad to see a fast ride giving its last breath, even one that features battery-electric power. However, the social media post embedded below has sparked some hilarious comments, so after watching the clip, you should head over to the comments area for a good laugh.
