This guy strapped three jet engines to the back of his Tesla because why not

The Tesla Model S P85D is a fast car, it does 0 to 60 in about 4 seconds.

But for one crazy engineer, it’s just not fast enough.

The engineer behind the YouYube channel Warped Perception decided to make it even faster by attaching three jet turbines to the back of his very own P85D.

And in the video, he takes his audience through the process step by step.

It’s all very technical so we’ll leave that to him.

But once the jet engines are strapped on to the Tesla, he puts them to the test, doing one run without the jet power and one with before comparing the times.

As standard, the car accelerates from standstill to 60 mph in 4.38 seconds in Launch Mode, whereas with all three jet engines running, it takes just 3.32 seconds, shaving almost a full second off the original time.

Now there are just two questions left to ask.

First of all, if this is the result you get with a P85D, what would happen if this guy decided to do the same thing with the Plaid?

The Model S Plaid was launched in 2021 and it is Tesla’s fastest vehicle so far, with a 0-60 time of just 1.9 seconds.

And the second question is: is this actually road legal?
