Remember when we posted that both the 60-kWh and 85-kWh versions of the Model S we're considerably quicker from 0 to 60 mph than Tesla claims?

Well, maybe that was Tesla being modest.

Or perhaps its just some fluke launch.  You know, them guys at DragTimes aren't ordinary drivers, so maybe they found a way to eke out a bit more acceleration than your Average Joe.

So, here we present the "Average Joe" driving a 60-kWh version of the Model S and this time around there's 500 pounds of people packed within.

Did the Model S match it's claimed 0 to 60 mph time?  How did it cope with 3 people in tow?

Watch the video.  We think you'll be surprised.
