The Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode holds the distinction of being the quickest production car in the world, accelerating from 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds!
While it’s true that both the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder have slightly faster 0-60 times, these were limited-run, million dollar vehicles that are no longer being built. Not to mention the fact that these were small two-seaters with limited luggage space. The Model S P100D has four doors, seats up to 5 adults plus 2 children, and has exceptional cargo capacity.
The added speed is thanks to the new 100 kWh battery option (available for both the Model S and Model X), which also increases range substantially to an estimated 315 miles (up from 294 miles when equipped with the 90 kWh battery).
Naturally, you have got to pay to play, with the Model S P100D with Ludicrous Mode starting at $134,500, an increase of $9,500 over the P90D. Existing P90D Ludicrous owners can also upgrade to a 100 kWh pack for $20,000, as their used 90 kWh pack will have to be recycled.
I guess the old saying is true.. Speed costs money, how fast do you want to go?
