Hey Pinger!

Good info.

 

Tesla came out with their P85D two engine Model S and installed a driving mode officially named Insane Mode. The video at the beginning of this article is composed of the camera focusing on unsuspecting people taking a test ride who are startled by it, to put it mildly. Remember this is a luxury 5 seater sedan.

 

The insane two engine P-85D went from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. The new setup in Ludicrous mode goes 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. How much difference can .4 seconds make? Watch the video in the link to see the folks riding in a Mosel S P85D in insane mode, then read the article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2015/07/17/teslas-new-ludicrous-mode-will-get-you-from-0-60-in-under-3-seconds/?wpisrc=nl_tech&wpmm=1

 

Holy smokes Batman!

 

The same company will be making a Ludicrous mode video soon.

 

For those who are not offended here is the same but more explicit video with more conversation and many epithetical expletives flying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpaLgF1uLB8&feature=iv&src_vid=1qFV5i8tBhs&annotation_id=annotation_4210525959
