103 out of 100 ain’t bad.

Tesla’s TSLA new car is so good that it’s literally off the charts.

The company’s Model S P85D scored a 103 out of 100 from Consumer Reports, the highest score ever given to a vehicle by the publication.

“This is a car that set new benchmarks, and we had to make changes to our scoring to account for it,” Consumer Reports said in a video. The final, official score for the car was 100 out of 100.

The magazine touted the new Model S’s safety features, over-the-air updates and fuel efficiency in its extremely positive review. The standout feature of the P85D version, though, is the new “Insane Mode,” which lets the car accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, making it the fastest vehicle Consumer Reports has ever tested.

Creating a car that’s the best of the best comes at a high cost, though. At a retail price of nearly $128,000, the Model S P85D is also the most expensive car Consumer Reports has ever reviewed.
