Watch The Tesla Model S P85D Scare Passengers With “Insane Mode” Launch

This thing is fast. Like McLaren F1 fast.

Ever since Elon Musk unveiled his 691-hp Tesla Model S P85D, we’ve seen the performance electric sedan take down supercars, Hellcats, and brake quarter-mile world records. Definitive proof this is a fast car exists. In abundance. But to slam the point home, DragTimes filmed the reactions of passengers when using the EV's “Insane Mode” launch-control function, unleashing the D’s maximum, neck-snapping potential from a standing start.

In terms of its acceleration, Musk said the P85D was benchmarked against the McLaren F1. So don’t be surprised to read that both cars are capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. The reactions here are priceless. And they are occasionally somewhat explicit. Certainly NSFW without wearing headphones.
