Musk previously tweeted that it was the "quickest production car ever made of any kind."

It can reach speeds of up to 200 miles-per hour and comes with a $130,000 price tag, per Tesla. With the company's "Full Self-Driving" feature, the vehicle costs more than $140,000, Insider's Bryan Logan reported.

The initial delivery date for the Model S Plaid was pushed back by one week in June after Musk said it needed "one more week of tweak."
