Tesla Model S P100D Owner Tests Out Multiple Acceleration Times

Ever since Tesla first announced their new flagship Model S P100D model, we’ve been waiting for somebody to test out its 0-60 mph (96km/), 100 mph (160km/h) and 1/4 mile acceleration under real world conditions.

It’s one thing to hear Tesla say that this or that model will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in a certain amount of seconds, and a completely different thing to see it happen outside of a test lab.

Thanks to Brooks from Dragtimes, we now have some seriously delightful sprint times to go with when it comes to the Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode.

Tesla claimed that the new flagship Model S will be able to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in no more than 2.5 seconds, making this the quickest-accelerating car currently in production. Well, as it turns out, the P100D tested by Dragtimes managed to sprint to 60 mph in precisely that amount of seconds, which is remarkable.

It also hit 100 mph (160 km/h) in 6.5 seconds and ran a 1/4 mile in 10.8 seconds at 124.5 mph (200.3 km/h). To be fair, its 0-100 mph time isn’t quite as impressive as the 0-60 mph time – though only because something like an Aventador will get to 100 mph a little quicker.

How do you feel about the Model S becoming even faster and do you think this should be the pinnacle for electrified saloons in terms of performance, or is there room for even better sprint times?
