Tesla Model S Plaid – GIMMICK or GAME-CHANGER?

Jack and Ricky take a look at the Tesla Model S Plaid, is this the supercar killer or the just the world’s fastest family car?

With three motors, over 1,000bhp and a 2 second 0-60 time, the Model S Plaid is easily Tesla’s maddest creation to date: a four door family car can put even the rarest and most expensive hypercars to shame in a straight line.

But do you really need all that? Does the Plaid do enough to differentiate itself from the already very fast Model S Long Range? Jack and Ricky investigate.
