The small company said that their electric car is the fastest accelerating electric vehicle on the planet as it can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds.
Unfortunately, Faraday Future’s FF91 is already beaten by the Tesla Model S P100D with its new Ludicrous Plus mode.
The Tesla Model S P100D even with its new Ludicrous Plus mode, however, recently got totally dusted by the Ford Mustang that it went drag racing against, and it definitely looks a little silly on a track where one typically expects to find loud engines and plenty of gasoline.
As well as software updates to add back Autopilot functionality in its latest cars, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has hinted on Twitter at an update to improve performance even further.
It was also Musk who recently teased a software update that would allow the latest Model S P100D to do 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, shaving 0.1 second off the time previously quoted and a quarter-mile time of 10.6 seconds.
That update is now available, and Tesla fans have nicknamed it the “Ludicrous Plus” mode.
Accessing the new mode takes some doing, but it does deliver somewhat increased performance. Ludicrous Plus mode first requires the most recent version of Tesla’s firmware, listed as version 8.0.
