Tesla Drag Race — Ludicrous P90D Vs. Insane P85D

Does this matter, you might be asking yourself? Well, that depends on how obsessed with Tesla (and its cars) you are — those obsessed are no doubt of the opinion that such things are of utmost importance — or how obsessed you are with fast cars, in general. Anyhow, without further ado, I present you with the “findings” of recent research undertaken by the folks at DragTimes (condensed into a concise video format). Enjoy.
As shown in the video, the lead taken by the Ludicrous Mode P90D ends up being fairly substantial very quickly — the acceleration advantage is really quite visible almost right from the start. I guess that’s the advance conferred by being willing to plop down a further $10,000 over the standard price (worth the bragging rights for some, I guess).
The new Ludicrous Mode is on offer for those with or purchasing the new Model S P90D.
As a side note here, those who already have a Model S P85D have access to the Ludicrous Mode upgrade for $5000 + installation costs. I wonder how many will end up taking up the offer? With the Model X pretty much here, I’m guessing that much of the Tesla-focused attention is now elsewhere, but there are still Model S owners who don’t care about SUVs (from Tesla or not) but who want the quickest sedan in history.
