We all talk about hypercars and how quick they are, but it’s been proven once again that the Tesla Model S P100D is an absolutely insane vehicle with a 0-60 mph time worthy of world records. And it does it all with four doors.
Motor Trend recently tested the P100D with the Ludicrous Mode engaged and have set an insane new record. According to their blog post, no car during their testing has ever gone 0-60 mph faster than 2.3 seconds. That is, until they tested this Tesla with latest firmware (v8.0 release 2.52.22).

When tested, they recorded the Model S P100D’s 0-60 time at an unbelievable 2.275 seconds! I think the correct term to call this feat would be ludicrous.
Motor Trend noted that this car’s acceleration when in Ludicrous Mode “snaps your body in a manner that is utterly impossible to replicate in any other street-legal production car on normal tires and dry asphalt at a mid-$100,000 price point.” For a four-door sedan with ample storage space, that’s downright impressive.
