Tesla's Ludicrous Mode And The Autobahn Go Together Like Peanut Butter And Jelly

Electric Car

The perfect place to pull top speed runs for days.

The electric motors in the Tesla Model S P90D seem like a source of endless amounts of fun. Combined they can cause 762 horsepower worth of chaos and have all 713 lb-ft of torque on tap from the get go. So what happens when you combine this quiet drag strip hustler with Germany’s famously speed limit-free Autobahn? A timed top speed run, which for the Tesla means a race to 155 mph with less noise then you would find in a crowded elevator.

As fast as this looks, the driver may have lifted off the accelerator slightly because the P90D has been clocked accelerating to its top speed a full eight seconds quicker than this Autobahn racer.
