Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus sets a new 1/4 mile record

Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus sets new quarter mile record

Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus sets a new quarter mile record in early 2017.


Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus is now quicker than ever, so about a week ago, at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida, the quickest Tesla Model S in history set a new quarter mile record in a drag race against a modified Camaro ZL1.

The video contains two different drag races.

In the first 1/4 mile drag race we can see a white Tesla Model S Ludicrous Plus with glass roof and 7 seat configuration against a BMW 550i, and Tesla manages to win with the time of 10.875 seconds, reaching a speed of 121.45 mph.

The second 1/4 mile drag race shows a different Tesla Model S Ludicrous Plus that has no pano or glass roof and no 7 seat configuration.

Tesla races against a modified Chevrolet Camaro ZL 1, and wins the race with the time of 10.723 seconds (a new 1/4 mile record), reaching a speed of 121.49 mph.

This video shows that weight reduction always improves the performance of the vehicle in a drag race.

We already know what a Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus can do in a drag race against a petrol-based supercar, but from my knowledge, I know that a pretty new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 develops 580 HP and 556 lb-ft. of torque.

A stock Camaro does the 1/4 mile in 12.4 seconds, reaching a top speed of 117 mph, so even if this Camaro is modified, it finishes the race in 11.23 seconds, which is way behind the Tesla.
