Tesla has launched a new Track Package for the Model S Plaid which unlocks the all-electric saloon’s 200-mile-per-hour top speed, as well as bringing some nice extras that should make the American EV perform better on the track.

Initially teased in a short Twitter video and then added to the official online accessories shop, the Model S Plaid Track Package includes forged aluminium wheels, track-ready tyres and brake fluid, new carbon-silicon carbide rotors, and one-piece forged callipers with high-performance pads.

The whole kit, which will be available in the US from June 2023, costs between $15,000 – $20,000 (approx. £12,000 – £15,900), depending on what an owner chooses from the components list, but as per Tesla’s website, the complete pack comes with the following:

Carbon Ceramic Brake Kit:

  • 2x 410 x 40mm carbon-silicon carbide front rotors;
  • 2x 410 x 32mm carbon-silicon carbide rear rotors;
  • 2x 6-piston one-piece forged front callipers with high-performance brake pads;
  • 2x 4-piston one-piece, forged rear callipers with high-performance brake pads;
  • 2x integrated, calliper-mounted parking brakes;
  • Track-ready brake fluid;
  • Updated FW tuned for peak performance.

Wheel/Tire Components:

  • 2x 20X10J, Zero-G wheels with 285/35R20 Goodyear Supercar 3R tyres (front);
  • 2x 20X11J, Zero-G wheels with 305/30R20 Goodyear Supercar 3R tyres (rear);
  • TPMS, Zero-G centre caps, tyre nut valves, and lug nut covers.

The Carbon Ceramic Brake kit with the new brake fluid costs $15,000 and the price rises to $20,000 if the wheels and tyres are included in the bundle. The Zero-G wheels with Goodyear rubber can also be purchased separately for $6,000, so there’s a potential to save $1,000 by getting the complete kit rather than buying it in two parts.

 

Back in November 2021, Tesla announced the upgraded brake kit as a $20,000 add-on for the Model S Plaid, so with this latest update, the price has gone down by $5,000. Tesla notes that the ceramic brakes are not compatible with 19-inch Tempest wheels but are compatible with 20-inch Zero-G and 21-inch Arachnid wheels.

The American EV brand also offers a $5,500 hardware track package for Model 3 Performance which includes 20-inch Zero-G wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, high-performance brake pads, and Bluetooth low-energy tyre pressure sensors.

Unfortunately, there is no mention of the Model S Plaid Track Package on Tesla's UK accessory shop.
