However for Tesla Mannequin S Plaid house owners who stay (or incessantly drive) in Germany, there’s an added bonus: the Monitor Pack unlocks a high pace of 200 miles per hour (322 kilometers per hour). This makes the Plaid a deadly weapon on the Autobahn’s derestricted sections, because the above video coming from an proprietor exhibits. 

Belgium-based Steven Peeters, who claims to be the primary European buyer to have the Monitor Bundle put in on his Tesla Mannequin S Plaid, was driving by means of Germany on his option to the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the place he later met Misha Charoudin and let him drive his automobile on the monitor.

He nonetheless did it, albeit solely as soon as.
