Unplugged Performance is the leading brand in bespoke, premium upgrades for Tesla vehicles.
The folks at Unplugged Performance have modified a Model S Plaid, named it ‘Dark Helmet’ after the character of the same name from the movie Spaceballs that inspired the Tesla sedan’s ‘Plaid’ branding, and are flaunting it at race tracks across the U.S..
With veteran racer Randy Pobst at its yoke steering wheel, ‘Dark Helmet’ is slated to take part in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday, June 27.
After a day of testing at the raceway, the Model S Plaid was left with some worn out Yokohoma tires that, admittedly, beautifully complement the whole ‘Plaid’ aesthetic of the quickest 0-60 mph car ever.
The team decided to give the tires a proper send off in a drift session, with the Model S Plaid’s 1,020 horsepower effectively annihilating the tires in no time.
