As you probably figured out by now, we're talking about a Tesla Model S P85 whose owner was craving for some highway speeding action. Of course, he couldn't get such thrills in Norway where fines are unforgiving, so he chose the German autobahn as a playground.
There are lots of things you can do with a Tesla Model S. For example, you can run a Samsung Galaxy S6 over multiple times, or you can get struck by lighting while using a Supercharger station. But the 'bravest' drivers take their Tesla on the highway, where they test the limit of the car.

One such example is Bjørn Nyland, a Tesla Model S P 85 owner who took his all-electric sedan on the German autobahn and kept the accelerator down for 12 minutes. Given the type of traffic that's usually found on Germany's highways, we consider him lucky for having so much space to keep a constant speed of 125 mph (201 km/h).

According to his own words, "the autobahn stretch was 40 km (24 miles) which I covered in 12 minutes averaging 200 km/h or 125 mph. Consumption was 520 Wh/km (840 Wh/mi)".

As you watch the video, please note the car's lightning-fast acceleration and how fast the battery is deprived of energy. Also, try doing that in the first part of the video, as the second half si all about blurred and shaky images to the high speed. Furthermore, we're not sure the car is comfortable with this type of over-the-limit behavior since it wasn't built for such highway raids.
