The Tesla Model S P85 D will be sold with a new Ludicrous Mode, which offers enhanced performance that will allow the car to pull 1.1G of acceleration and cover 0-60mph in 2.8secs, company boss Elon Musk has revealed.
The P85 D, which is the highest performance Tesla Model S available, was previously sold with an Insane Mode. However, the 0-60mph time in Ludicrous Mode is enhanced by 10% and the 0-155mph time by 20%. The quarter-mile time for the P85 D in Ludicrous Mode is 10.8sec.
The performance enhancement has been achieved by raising the electric car's maximum amperage from 1300amps to 1500amps.
