From Streamlined Speedster to Inconspicuous Family Hauler

The extensively-modified Tesla Model S Plaid that shattered the quarter-mile electric car speed record has undergone a radical transformation - from a stripped-down speed machine into an unexpected and innocuous-looking family vehicle.

The team at BoostedBoiz, who set the 8.71 second record run earlier this year, have grafted the high- performance guts of the Model S onto the body of a 2001 Honda Odyssey. Dubbed the "Plaidessey," this unusual creation retains the Plaid's record-setting acceleration while hiding it under the guise of a common minivan.

Perfect Fit? Odyssey Body Mated to Model S Platform

Remarkably, the Odyssey body is an almost perfect fit for the Model S chassis, with less than two inches difference in wheelbase between the vehicles. Only minor modifications were needed to accommodate the fenders and other components.

The one tricky part was mating the Odyssey's B-pillar to the location of the Plaid's pillar after cutting off the Tesla's windshield. But this improved accessibility to the driver's seat area.

"The 'Plaidessey' halfway through the changes," said BoostedBoiz, showing the curious mashup of vehicles.

From World Record to Dead in the Water

Prior to the minivan makeover, the extensively customized Plaid had captured the imagination of speed fans globally. But immediately after their record-shattering quarter mile run, issues emerged.

The car's suspension became stuck in low mode, rendering the world's fastest Tesla unable to move under its own power. Multiple Tesla dealerships were unable to resolve the problem.

Fortunately, specialists at Electrified Garage identified a faulty part and got the Plaid back on the road - just in time for its radical Odyssey transformation!
