What do a late '80s spoof comedy and the amazing Tesla Model S P100D have in common? The answer, Ludicrous Speed!
Mel Brooks' Spaceballs was a classic of its time and today, the new Tesla Model S P100D is equally groundbreaking for all lovers of high speed, thrills and excitement.
The mad hatters at Tesla have taken a page out of the Spaceballs playbook and now Ludicrous Mode is a feature that all future owners will want to experience and enjoy.
Indeed, the schwartz is strong with this one, with the latest Tesla launching from zero to 62 mph in less than 2.4 seconds – that's faster than some of the most expensive hypercars on the planet, including the acclaimed LaFerrari.
It's an amazing testament to the progress made in the electric car segment in recent years, while also providing a nod to one of our favourite spoof comedies of all time.
So, for all lovers of the film and future Tesla owners, there's just one thing you need to remember when pushing to Ludicrous Speed – don't forget to wear your Dark Helmet!
Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, adds: "The new Tesla Model S P100D is a real gamechanger in electric cars, and it's great to see the designers have a real sense of humour to boot!"
