Jay Leno set a new land-speed record during a test drive of Tesla’s newly upgraded Model S Plaid

The former “Tonight Show” host was recording a segment for an upcoming edition of his CNBC show “Jay Leno’s Garage” by taking a Tesla Model S Plaid out for a spin on a racetrack in an attempt to break the quarter-mile land-speed record for a production model.

“I’ll tell you what I did. I went up to Famoso Dragway in Bakersfield,” Leno said when he called into the “Spike’s Car Radio” podcast. “And the Tesla Plaid… I drove by, and the NHRA guy was there to make it official. It turned a 9.247, at 152 MPH,”
