Tesla P100D With Ludicrous Plus Burns Rubber With Faster 0-60 Time Than Faraday Future's FF 91 SUV
Tesla is breaking acceleration records with the help of its Ludicrous Plus mode and leaving Faraday Future's FF91 in the dust - by a thousandth of a second.
Despite the really REALLY small margin, a fraction of a second is a big thing when it comes to racing. And while the FF 91 and P100D were not in a literal race, the two impressive electrical cars are engaged in a bitter rivalry as to which is better and faster. At least in theory.
The auto industry has been riddled with news of the latest but yet-to-be available Faraday Future electric cars that are trying to put pedal into metal to become the best and fastest in their field. The current leader of the pack will not have any of that.
Faraday Future claimed that its FF 91 will have the fastest acceleration with a supposed record of 60mph in just 2.39 seconds. Tesla's Model S P100D, however, broke the record when it went from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.389 seconds.
According to Engadget, the P100D got a big boost from its Ludicrous Plus mode courtesy of an over-the-air update. Tesla is not content with the speed record, however. The company's founder and CEO, Elon Musk, believes that a faster time of 2.34 second is attainable which he expressed in a tweet. Musk also mentioned that a Tesla car made for racing was able to reach 62mph in only 2.1 seconds.
Faraday Future's FF 91 exhibited a concept version at the CES 2017 and will start production in 2018. Only 300 "Alliance Edition" units of the FF 91 will be made. Initial pre-orders of Tesla's highly anticipated Model 3, meanwhile, will also be delivered late this year and in mid-2018 for reservations made in October last year.
