Smoke coming from vents

This may seem strange but my 2012 When I really get on it I mean when I down shift and haul a** down the highway and it hits the limiter at 115 for some reason smoke starts coming out of the A/C vents. This is the second time it's done it any ideas

Is your a/c on? If so, I'd guess it's frost coming from the evaporator core. When you accelerate rapidly the a/c charges quickly and outside warm air is forced through the outside vent causing the mix of ice cold air and warm air creating frost. Kinda like exhaling in the winter time. Come to think of it, I think mine has done it even though the a/c was off.

That is what I was going to guess
