Tesla Model S P100D Storms From 0 to 60 MPH in 2.28 Seconds, That's a New Record
MotorTrend orchestrated the attempt
Under 2.3 seconds from a standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) should come with the hypercar tag and a seven-figure sticker.
However, in Tesla Land, such performance is possible courtesy of the Model S P100D, for just a fraction of a hypercar's price - $134,500, to be more exact.
The thing is, when you've got mountains of torque available instantly and all-wheel drive by your side, you're bound to dominate such sprints and make it in a league populated by the likes of Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918.
The Model S in question was part of a test elaborated by MotorTrend on a closed course (you know, safety first) and it managed to shatter the 0-60 mph interval in 2.28 seconds, becoming the quickest production model to 30, 40, 50 and 60 mph they've ever tested.
