The much anticipated Tesla Ludicrous+ Easter egg, said to boost performance of Ludicrous equipped Model S and Model X P100D vehicles, has began to download into vehicles through Tesla’s latest over-the-air firmware update.
The new performance upgrade makes the world’s quickest accelerating production car even quicker. Model S P100D will now rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds and capable of knocking out a 1/4 mile time of 10.6 seconds. Model X will also see a notable .1 second improvement in 0 to 60 and 1/4 mile time through the new Easter egg.
Tesla’s Ludicrous+ mode can be activated through the same sequence of steps that activates the Space Ball’s Ludicrous Speed Easter egg. Once the Easter egg is unlocked, a warning will appear that prompts the driver to either exit away from Ludicrous+ through a “No, I want my Mommy” button, or activate it by confirming “Yes, bring it on!”. A message that reads “Are you sure you want to push the limits? This will cause accelerated wear of the motor, gearbox and battery” reminds owners that the increase in performance will come with wear and tear consequences, if used.
Watch below as DragTimes takes us through the steps for activating Ludicrous+ mode.
