Elon Musk has just announced a new “Ludicrous Speed” upgrade for the Tesla Model S P85D that will enable it to go from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds, making it as fast as a Lamborghini LP750-4 Superveloce. Its quarter-mile sprint coming in at just 10.9 seconds is a doozy as well. Tesla is also planning to make “Ludicrous Speed” an option on the company’s upcoming Model X SUV, though it will be a bit slower due to the vehicle’s weight. Continue reading to see the reactions of people who are experiencing the P85D’s “Insane Mode” for the first time.
“Ludicrous Speed doesn’t come cheap, though: it’s a $10,000 option for the car, so you really need to want to be pressed into the back of your seat. Musk describes the acceleration as ‘faster than falling,’ which is true – with the accelerator mashed to the floor, you’re getting 1.1 G of force. The package also requires the 90kWh battery upgrade, which adds on another $3,000,” according to The Verge.
