The Roadster’s impressive acceleration time of 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, the theoretical limit
for a road car equipped with road tires, can only be achieved by putting the car in Maximum Plaid mode, Musk’s latest shoutout to the Space Balls movie that he’s referenced with the name of every other launch mode his cars have come with. The reactions from our Drag Times host are pure gold, and that's coming from a guy who takes his Model S P100D and McLaren 720S
to the drag strip on a consistent basis. But the coolest thing we learn about the roadster in this little soirée is the fact that it can pull off those insane runs all night long without performance dropping off.
