Electric car Tesla Model S P85D has a mode called “Insane” (eng. Mad) in which the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in an impressive 3.2 seconds. It's fast enough, isn't it? However, it seems the engineers esla decided to raise the bar even higher, adding a new mode, which they called “Ludicrous” (eng. Ridiculous).
Instead of having to accelerate to a hundred in 3.2 seconds, the mode is Ludicrous to be able to disperse the Model S from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. Now many may say that the difference in 0.4 seconds is negligible, but even fractions of a second play a role when it comes to such cars where the owner wants to boast of every little thing.
However, in contrast to the Insane mode, which is available with just a software update of the car, the Ludicrous mode is available only by updating the equipment of the car, which also means that he is not free. All because to further accelerate Model S P85D, Tesla needs to install new hardware, such as other fuses, which will not melt and some other details.
As for the price question, if you buy a new Model S P85D, and you want this mode, then you will have to pay an extra $10.000. For existing owners, this option will cost $5.000, although this is only the cost of parts, their installation will also have to pay a certain amount. published
