Insane mode was not enough for the Tesla Team – they craved Ludicrous! Insane mode, if you recall, gets you from 0 – 100kph in a shockingly quick 3.2 secs. Just to put that in perspective the Porsche 911 GT 3 (3.8 991) takes 3.6 seconds and it takes the Bugatti Veyron (16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse) supercar, 2.6 seconds to get to 100kph. The Holden Commodore SS 6.0 V8 has figures of 5.1 secs from 0-100kph – quick by any other standards but decidedly a slow ‘muscle’ machine by comparison.
Tesla goes Ludicrous
About the Author: EV Tech
Had a car converted to EV in 2008 - established MY ELECTRIC CAR 2009 - had the pleasure of driving the Nissan LEAF, Tesla Model S (P85D) the BMW i3 and the Renault Zoe & Kangoo - all incredible! Rightly predicted the wave of change globally to EVs in a much bigger way towards the end of 2016 and through 2017/2018. Also predicts big changes to car ownership when autonomous drive cars gain traction (2020 - 2025).
