Watch The Best Reaction Ever To Tesla's "Insane Mode"


OOOH F*&K! Jesus!

Most gearheads who are acquainted with the Tesla Model S P85D know that the impressive electric performance sedan has carved out a reputation for being an acceleration beast. The Model S boasts Tesla’s most powerful powertrain to date with a dual electric motor capable of producing an incredible 691 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque that propels the car to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. The Model S is so fast, in fact, that it has two acceleration modes, “Sport” and “Insane.”

What you are about to see in this video is the owner of a Tesla Model S P85D, actor Robert Llewellyn of Red Dwarf, testing out “Insane” mode acceleration from a dead stop for the first time. The action begins at the 1:50 mark and this guy has one of the most hilarious reactions to an acceleration test that we’ve ever seen.
