Tesla Model S Alpha Prototypes at the Track – Click above to watch video after the jump

What's better than pictures of a great looking car? Video of a great looking car in motion.

Tesla has turned a trio of pre-production Alpha editions of the Model S loose on the track to perform a few quick laps. One big difference between this track footage and any you're likely to see from another manufacturer is the sound. Other than a little tire scuff and some wind noise, the Model S and Model S and Model S (see how we avoided having to use the plural there?) go about their track business in near silence. Nifty as the quiet operation of electric vehicles is in day to day life, watching them move around a raceway without one bit of V-8 roar or snotty turbocharger whine is just... eerie.

Check out the video after the jump.
