Since the launch of the Tesla Model S, it seems that Elon Musk wanted to make it an increasingly rapid beast. For it is now proposing an update for the Model S P90D called ” Ludicrous, “which could be translated as ridiculous or absurd. Do you remember the absurd speed Spaceballs? For something like that, I’m afraid.
This improvement to the P90D, which achieves an output of 772 hp, is an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in just 3.0 seconds, it said soon, and it is equivalent to a force of 1.1g acceleration. For its part, the American test par excellence, the quarter mile, achieved a time of 10.9 seconds, joining the “club of the 10 seconds.”
Of that total power of 772 hp, a 510 hp engine comes mounted in the rear, while the remaining 262 hp engine develops unique the front axle. Tesla says the car reaches a top speed of 155 mph ( 250 km / h ) faster 20%.
All buyers P85D may extend their model by 2,700 euros (plus VAT) to the new battery pack 90 kWh, which increases the autonomy by 6% to around 520 kilometers (according to European approval). Meanwhile, the “Ludicrous” mode is an option of 8,900 euros (plus VAT) for the P90D (that is to equip the 90 kWh battery), but later comes to other models like the future Model X , which Musk promises ” You will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in just over three seconds.”
While still have to wait for the Tesla Model X, the latest Tesla Motors is the Tesla Model S P85D, theTesla Model S all-wheel drive, thanks to mount two electric motors, one at the rear and one on the front axle, and also be more performance for all versions, with nothing more and nothing less than 700 hp (224 hp and 476 hp front back) and acceleration from 0-100 km / h in just 3.4 seconds.
If you also think of such figures we are talking about an electric car that has no gearbox, transmission is direct, and the engine responds without delay and without delay, to give a stamp on the throttle response is immediate. And it shows, of course. So the happy owners of a Tesla Model S P85D proud to show friends and family how good it speeds up your new car.
And these are. We put the car in demented way, the insane mode of speaking in the video, the more aggressive the way sport where the car gives everything, without thinking for a moment in consumption or autonomy. We start car stopped, and give a stamp to throttle the car. And this is the face that are left passengers who feel the sprint.
