Tesla Model S Plaid: carbon ceramic brakes also available

 A new implant with 410 mm diameter composite discs will be available from mid-2022

It is one of the most powerful sedans on the market. The Tesla Model S Plaid, however, is not only power in a straight line because it has already demonstrated remarkable skills also on the track, beating the record on the well-known Nurburgring circuit set by Porsche Taycan ( here the article). There were also many acceleration races on the quarter-mile , where it managed to beat several supercars, not to mention the more than moderate price compared to European sports cars. Now, however, the American brand seems to leverage even more on the dynamic qualities of Elon Musk's electric sedan, also making carbon ceramic brakes available.    In fact, by mid-2022, Tesla has announced that a new and sophisticated braking system with carbon-ceramic discs will be available, specifically designed for those who want to enjoy the maximum performance of the Model S Plaid without the fear of not being able to slow down the crazy speeds that is able to achieve. The kit, also available at a later stage after the purchase of the car, includes carbon-silicon carbide discs, 6-piston monobloc calipers, high-performance pads and an innovative liquid capable of losing its properties even at high temperatures.     The new discs measure 410mm in diameter , an astonishing value for a road car, at 15mm thick. In the back there are instead more contained calipers, with 4 pistons. The car is equipped with 21-inch Arachnid alloy wheels, to adequately contain the immense braking system.  The price? There is talk of a really expensive kit, an extra 20 thousand dollars to install the increased braking system. According to some rumors, it would be a sort of test to see how much customers are really interested in a high-performance Model S, predicting a possible Model S Plaid Plus, even more powerful. In fact, in recent times, another Model S has been spotted at the Nurburgring even more "decorated" than usual, with more aerodynamic appendages and spoilers.
