People Reacting To Tesla's 'Insane Mode' Button That Launches Car From 0 - 60MPH In 3.2 Seconds

Note: First video has tons of cussing on account of being launched like a rocket. Second video has all the cuss words edited out. Don't watch that one.

This is a video of Brooks from DragTimes demonstrating the Tesla P85D's 'Insane Mode' on unsuspecting passengers. After coming to a complete stop and engaging the insane mode button, the car launches from 0 - 60MPH in 3.2 seconds. That's like, supercar fast. The Tesla P85D starts at around $120,000, and will be used exclusively as my getaway car of choice for all future bank robberies. I mean, after the one I have to pull off to buy the car in the first place. Hopefully a 2004 Prius with bad brakes will work for that one.

Keep going for the videos.

    Best one is when the girl gets her phone thrown out of her hands.

    Is that a residential area? I can't help but feel that might be a wee bit unsafe.

    It costs ~$120,000. For that money you can get other super cars with comparable acceleration.

    What other non-polluting, all-electric, supercar featuring a giant iPad dashboard and an "insane mode" button can you get for $120K?

    (Tesla prices actually start around $100K, and they're coming out with a "poor man's" model soon for around $80K.)

    Tesla prices start around $70k. But that's for a shorter ranged model Model S.

    For any one who is interested, Tesla is creating a Model 3 which should retail for around $35k. I would highly encourage anyone to check them out just to admire the tech in person. They are fantastic cars.

    What does any of that have to do with comparable acceleration?

    Bubbubsky commented about that acceleration being unsafe in residential neighborhoods, which it would be. But there are numerous cars already on the market that are faster than this one. Those cars, and this one, are priced high enough that you're not going to get many idiots speeding in a residential area. Meaning that it's not really a safety concern, and if it is, it isn't alone.

    Yeah, i don't see this feature being in every vehicle.
