Video: How fast Plaid S will accelerate

Came across this old vid in my YouTube favs. While we continue to wait for Plaid, thought this was interesting...

- The Rimac Concept One does the quarter mile in ~9.1 seconds

- Plaid S will do ~*9.23 seconds

So, in the video, vs. an OG P90D and LaFerrari, as fast as the Rimac accelerates, is basically how fast the base Plaid S will accelerate o_O

And then, Plaid+ will be slightly quicker, and then base Roadster will be slightly quicker than that, and then Roadster with SpaceX package will be quicker than that o_O
