Guy straps three jet engines to the back of his Tesla for the fun of it

  • A stock Tesla Model S P85D is capable of 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in around 4 seconds
  • That wasn’t fast enough for one engineer, though, who strapped three jet turbines to the back of his own P85D
  • With all three jet engines running, his rocket-powered Tesla reaches 60 in just 3.32 seconds

Guy straps three jet engines to the back of his Tesla for the fun of it

Capable of 0 to 60 in around 4 seconds, the Tesla Model S P85D is a fast car.

But it wasn’t quite fast enough for one crazy engineer.

The engineer, who runs the Warped Perception YouTube channel, 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 (97 km/h) 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?
