New Ludicrous+ Mode Gives Tesla Model S Stupidly Fast 0-60 MPH Time

Faraday Future better watch out because Tesla is coming for its 0-60 mph record.

Elon Musk has a serious need for speed. How else do you explain the fact that Teslas keep getting faster and faster? Thanks to YouTube’s DragTimes we now know that Ludicrous+ mode exists, and that it allows the Model S to do 0-60 mph in just 2.46 seconds. In addition to the boosted acceleration Ludicrous+ provides an extra 35 horsepower. A 0-60 mph time of 2.46 puts the Model S hot on the heels of the recently unveiled Faraday Future FF91, which makes the same sprint in an eye-popping 2.39 seconds.

If you own a Tesla but don’t know how to engage Ludicrous+ you’re in luck as the process is detailed in this video. It’s quite easy and the prompt to engage it is pretty cheeky. Can you spot "The Matrix" reference?

Of course not all Teslas will do 0-60 mph in just 2.46 seconds. The model shown in this video is the top-of-the-line P100D with all the needed software upgrades and updates. But technology flows down in the auto industry. One day Ludicrous mode may be standard on all Teslas regardless of trim. And one day after that day a $35,000 Model 3 might be able to embarrass every car at the drag strip once Ludicrous+ mode is engaged. Future drag strip domination aside, the Tesla Model S P100D is a seriously fast car right now, as this video proves.
