Our latest video is a treat for all Tesla-lovers and anyone who has a need for speed - Rory Reid takes the Dark Helmet, a heavily modified Tesla Model S Plaid, out for a spin and puts it to test by going head-to-head against one of the best sports cars out there – the Corvette Z06.
The Dark Helmet moves at a lightning-fast speed, it’s super smooth on the corners and has brakes like no other. Using the same batteries and motors as a Tesla Model S, the company Unplugged Performance has managed to create this aerodynamic monster without making any dramatic changes to the original Tesla. Watch our video to find out more about the modifications and the Dark Helmet’s performance. Inspired to enhance your car’s performance?
