Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous Mode videos are slowly appearing as seen in uploads by the first batch of owners.

Here is an acceleration and braking video – just several seconds long, but entertaining.

0 – >60 – 0 mph (0 – ≈100 – 0 km/h)

We are not sure if 0-60 was in less than 3 seconds, but we’re sure this detail will be examined in countless reviews to come.

I am so jealous

And all done in complete silence!!

Seems to take about 3.6 seconds to hit an indicated 60 mph, though the dash appears to take about a third of a second to update once the vehicle starts moving.

You count way too fast. I make it closer to 2.9 – 3.0 seconds, which is more reasonable considering he has a passenger.

Plus I don’t see this 1/3 delay you speak of. I watched the video closely and the vehicle and display start moving at the same time.

Nice, but isn’t the benchmark 0-100mph-0?

Seems like Tesla just made up a benchmark which favors it.

0-100-0 is definitely the benchmark.

But this video isn’t by Tesla (just a random owner), and looks like it might have been on a public road. So it might have been designed to stay within the speed limit.

The benchmark is 0 to 60 mph which is roughly equivalent to 0 to 100 km/h (metric).

0 – 60 is the ordinary car acceleration standard.

The 0 – 100 – 0 is the lesser know Supercar standard. It is the stopping part that makes the test so hard. It really all about power-to-weight.

Taser is right on that, http://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/car-comparison-tests/reviews/a18862/power-trip-0-100-0-history/

If you step through the video, the display reaches 62 MPH, which is 100!

not bad for a 5000 pound car.

It is bad for the one driving behind you. He will not be able to stop that fast.

Why would this be bad for anyone behind you?
It stops just the same as any car.

Drivers are supposed to keep a safe distance.

Not to worry … They would likely not be able to keep up with the P90D and remain close enough to it to have any issues in that distance.

That’s the most illogical rubbish I’ve ever heard. The shorter the stopping distance for ANY vehicle, the better.

If someone rear ends you because you had to emergency stop; well let’s put it this way: You stopped for a reason. Better to be rear ended than run over some kid that just ran in the road.

Plus you can always choose how hard to brake. Better to have the power and not need it, you know what I’m saying? If the douche behind is too close then you have to adapt your driving to account for it.

I would have thought it would do better than 8 seconds…

0-60mph would take about 3 second and 60-0 should take about 2-3 seconds also.

I would think 6 seconds is reasonable time for this kind of high performance car…

It’s a heavy car. Heavy vehicles don’t stop on a dime. Plus it’s one of the few vehicles out there that accelerates to 60 faster than it brakes.

So it can get to 60 and back to zero before my car even gets to 60. :-/

Impressive. I can see why people love it once they get behind the wheel of one.

I have done this in my P85. About the 4-5 time I was getting nauseous.
