Tesla walked away with a major accomplishment last week as the electric-car maker has just set the World Record for the Quickest Production Electric Car with the Model S Performance.

According to DragTimes.com, the run took place this past weekend at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida. The final result: the Tesla Model S Performance, an all-electric luxury sports sedan that produces 416hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, completed a 12.371 second quarter mile, clocked at 110.84 MPH with 60 blowing by in just 3.9 seconds. Blimey!

To verify the run, the National Electric Drag Racing Association or NEDRA was present on site during the run while the Winter EV Nationals were taking place.

The Tesla Model S Performance used started out the beginning of the day with a completely full charge as the onboard indicator said there was a range of 314 miles remaining. Upon arrival at Palm Beach, the Tesla had concluded a 78-mile journey with just 205 miles remaining on range. After that, continuous runs were made with two consistent runs of 12.678 seconds clocked at 108 MPH.

The car was then recharged via a 240v 40AMP charging station and three hours later, the car was fully charged to complete the record-winning 12.371 second run.

Impressive by all means. And guess what? A video has even been provided with the Tesla competing against a last-generation Dodge Viper SRT10. Check it out below.
