Tesla’s new option, Ludicrous mode, helps deliver a quarter-mile drag time that beats some of the top supercars around. 

A 20 year-old Tesla Model S P90D owner took to the Rockingham Dragstrip to prove the electric car’s mettle and registered a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds in a production version of the car. That drag time beats such models as the Corvette Z06 or the Pagani Huyara. The maximum acceleration on the Model S P90D also produces a G-force of 1.1G.

Tesla offers Ludicrous mode on the current Model S P90D, which tops out at 762 hp to the P85D’s 691 hp, for $10,000. The car featured in the video here was fitted with that option, although, no other alterations were made to the vehicle according to the driver.
