Unplugged Performance continues to share footage of its modified Tesla Model S Plaid at Laguna Seca Raceway in Salinas, California.

The latest clip shows the Model S Plaid passing some supercars, such as a McLaren Senna, McLaren P1 and Porsche 991 GT3 RS.

“@Tesla [Plaid] alien technology was unleashed upon McLaren Senna, McLaren P1 and Porsche 991 GT3 RS. Hardcore smackdown ensues,” said Unplugged Performance on Tuesday afternoon.

Check out the clip below:

“GranTurismo Escudo unlocked,” added Unplugged Performance, noting it’s “a reference for all the OG video gamers that remember getting that Escudo and crushing everything effortlessly,” referring to the Suzuki Escudo hillclimb rally car that was available in the PlayStation racing game Gran Turismo 2 from 1999.

Here we have a family sedan at $129,990 USD passing and dominating some million dollar supercars, in the McLaren Senna and P1. The Model S Plaid’s incredible acceleration shows on the straightaway.

A previous clip from Unplugged Performance showed driver Randy Post taking the electric sedan to over 150mph (241 km/h), preparing for the Pikes Peak Hillclimb later this month.
