If you're a math whiz, engineering scholar or master of physics, then this Engineering Explained video might be up your alley. If you don't fall into one of those three categories, then perhaps it's best to just revel in the fact that the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous + mode can do 0 to 60 MPH in 2.28 seconds and leave it at that.

"How The Tesla Model S P100D Hit 60 MPH In 2.28 Seconds"
As hinted at above, this video is formula heavy and above the heads of most, but the gist is that there are all sorts of variables in play when the Model S P100D with Ludicrous + sets off the line. Variables such as power, grip, weight distribution, weight and so much more come into play. And when you're pushing the limits, each of these variables can have a profound impact on the end result.
Oh and if you've ever wonder just how quickly a street car can mathematically accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH, the answer (as explained in the video) is approximately 2.05 seconds, so the Model S P100D with Ludicrous + is close to that theoretical limit.
