“Stripped Down” Tesla Model S P100D With Ludicrous + Could Blow Away Faraday Future FF 91, Says Elon Musk
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter yesterday to make a few statements in regards to the newly released Ludicrous + mode for P100D Teslas.
Although initial testing by DragTimes (limited to just one run down the track) returned a 0 to 60 MPH time of 2.465 seconds with Ludicrous + mode enabled, Musk noted that under the MotorTrend launch standard, the car could probably lay down a 2.34-second 0 to 60 MPH run.
MotorTrend uses a first foot rollout procedure that is becoming the norm, but it’s not the same as a true off-the-line 0 to 60 MPH run. It results in a slightly quicker time than the old industry standards.
However, it was Musk’s comment in regards to the Faraday Future FF 91’s 0 to 60 MPH time of 2.39 seconds that’s most intriguing.
The FF 91 that performed the 2.39-second run was a stripped down version with no interior. We’re not sure how much weight was removed from that FF 91, but we’re certain that poundage removed (or not included) is substantial and Musk seems to think so too.
According to Musk, a “stripped down” Tesla Model S with Ludicrous + mode enabled could likely do the 0 to 60 MPH dash in just 2.1 seconds or so:
So, if you’re looking for nothing more than all-out acceleration, start by ripping out all the interior items in the S.
Or, if you just want to be assured that your S is still quicker than the FF 91, look no further than this tweet from Musk. Apples to apples, the Model S is still the 0 to 60 MPH king/queen!
