In Motor Trend's acceleration test, the 2017 Tesla Model S P100D in Ludicrous+ mode set a new world record for zero to 60 acceleration at less than 2.3 seconds, a barrier crossed by no previously tested street legal vehicle. The P100D's base price is $135,700.
Just a month ago, Tesla pushed a new "Easter egg" to P100D owners that promised to lower its 0 - 60 time to 2.4 seconds.
The Tesla Model S P100D broke the instant torque record by going 0 to 60mph in under 2.5 seconds with the help of the Ludicrous Plus mode.
Elon Musk's Tesla Model S has beaten the likes of Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 to become the world's quickest vehicle.
AFCON 2017: Montreal Impact's Ambroise Oyongo lifts trophy with Cameroon
Vincent Aboubakar scored the victor as Cameroon came from behind to beat Egypt 2-1 in the Africa Cup of Nations final on Sunday. A little over two decades later they face each other at Stade de L'Amitie, and Ondoa's presence is a surprise in its own right.
The driver then uses a special "launch control" sequence of brake and accelerator pedal pushes to initiate the crushing ground-level blast-off. In fact, these are the next-closest production vehicles in terms of 0-60mph (97km/h) acceleration, with the 918 and LaFerrari recording a 2.4-second time. According to Motor Trend's data, the P100D needed 0.26 seconds to travel that first foot and was already moving at 12.7 miles per hour when the timing run officially began.
The P100D sports all-wheel drive, a 100-kWh lithium-ion battery, and weighs in at a hefty 4,891 pounds, almost 1,500 pounds more than the McLaren P1 ($1.15 million), 1,200 pounds more than the Porsche 918 ($845,000), and 1,400 pounds more than Ferrari's LaFerrari ($1.7 million). At this point, no production vehicle has breached past 2.3 seconds. The P100D was able to reach the impressive acceleration speed thanks to its Ludicrous Plus mode which is an Ester Egg included in the latest software update.
Musk noted you could shave another couple hundredths off the time by taking out the floor mats and trunk liner. However, if you want to just concentrate on 0-60 times, the Tesla wins out every time. At 80mph, the Porsche and McLaren are faster than the Ludicrous+-powered Tesla Model S.
