Teslas are not only known as being eco-friendly luxury vehicles, but they are also known as being FAST.
In fact, last year the Tesla Model S P100D broke records in ludicrous mode, accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 2.3 seconds. Elon Musk has claimed that the upcoming Tesla Roadster will surpass that at a jaw-dropping 1.9 seconds.
A 46-year-old Canadian man has just enjoyed Tesla's infamous speed capabilities when he was driving his Tesla (model unknown) and literally took flight.
Luckily for all the skeptics and Tesla fans alike, a security camera caught the entire thing from multiple angles.
The driver proceeded to crash into a tree in a nearby elementary school parking lot.
Neither the driver nor their passenger was seriously injured, but the driver has since been charged with dangerous driving.
Elon Musk seems to be pretty excited about it.

Some are wondering if this car was equipped with the promised SpaceX package.

@elonmusk @ElectrekCo @FredericLambert Was the guy testing a preview of the Roadster SpaceX thrusters package?— Il Giustiziere (@Il Giustiziere) 1535610881.0
But others feel like the feat was irresponsible.
@elonmusk @ElectrekCo @FredericLambert That was in Barrie Ontario. The driver was speeding. (100km/h in a 50) TOTAL… https://t.co/AIyKeN9Zvg— Amanda Leckie (@Amanda Leckie) 1535628336.0
So what do you think? Incredible or irresponsible?
