New Tesla Model S update now outperforms McLaren P1 to 60 MPH

By Peter Chubb - Aug 24, 2016

Well, who would have thought, the Tesla Model S that can outperform the McLaren P1 to 60 MPH. Tesla Motors can now claim to have the worlds fastest production car, as they do not take into consideration the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder because their production run is very limited, and so very hard to get hold of.

The current 0-60 miles per hour times for these vehicles are 2.2 seconds for the 918, 2.4 for the LaFerrari, 2.5 for the Models S, 2.7 seconds for the P1 and 2.9 for the Model X

McLaren P1 limits top speed, unleashes other potential

It’s not like this news was a secret about Tesla Motors offering a 100-kwh battery pack for two of their models. The new P100D option will now offer a range of up to 315 miles and that 2.5 seconds from standstill to 60 miles per hour with Ludicrous mode of course.

While the new Tesla Model S and X P100D and 100D battery options are expensive, with a starting price of $134,500 for the former and $135,500 for the latterit’s still a fraction of the price that you would pay for those super/hyper cars above.

Do not worry if you currently have a Model S P100D or Model X P90D, as you can upgrade to this new battery for just $20,000. Even if you do not need that extra performance, the increased range will certainly be one of the biggest selling points.

    Nice.. the only difference is thoes performance figures aren’t always correct.. it’s been well documented the P1 is fast off the line than the La Ferrari. So I will wait and see how fast the new tesla is in the real world
