Tesla Ludicrous Mode to Accelerate 0-60 in 2.8 Seconds

Advancing from the previous "Insane Mode" to the "Ludicrous Mode," Tesla is pushing limits for the automotive industry. The Insane mode was designed for the high-performance P85D Model S luxury car that can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds. You thought that was fast? The introduction of the new Ludicrous mode for the Model S P85D can top that. 

    The upgrade to Ludicrous mode is equipped with a complex electrical engineering system, a front engine with 259 horsepower and a rear engine pushing 503 horsepower. It is essentially an acceleration boost from the Insane mode model. The Tesla Ludicrous mode upgrade for the Model S will cost an additional $10,000 for new owners, while current owners will be able to upgrade their existing Model S for $5,000 for the next six months. 

    Tesla also introduced a new 90kWh battery upgrade for $3,000 providing the Model S with an additional 15 miles of range. The Model S is seemingly the same car but with an upgraded version of itself. With the basic model and engineering being so advanced, this luxury car can accommodate faster acceleration and improve with new technology updates every year. By next year, this car could practically be driving itself! 

    CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, hasn't stopped there with his need for speed. According to Musk, there is an accelerator faster than Ludicrous mode, "Maximum Plaid," but he's saving that for the next generation which is reputed to be available in a couple of years. For now, the Model S will have to suffice for all of the acceleration junkies.

Model S Control Area
