For Electric GT championship have created a racing version of the Tesla Model S with acceleration to 100 km/h in 2.1 with
Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous — the most dynamic production car on the market. After flashing the acceleration time to 100 km/h was reduced to 2.4 s.: sure, Tesla cars are not sports cars in the conventional sense, and so rapid acceleration is primarily a good marketing advantage.
But this does not mean that Tesla cars cannot be used in races. For example, during a car show Autosport International in 2017 were shown a special version of the Tesla Model S, which will participate in the championship races Electric GT — the first event of its kind, which will be presented exclusively electric vehicles. This race will involve 10 teams and everyone will use upgraded versions of the Tesla Model S.
In particular, specialists of the championship managed from the serial Model S sedan P100D to create a more fit for racing car. This was upgraded suspension, brakes, welded roll cage, and learned all that completely unnecessary racing car. In the result, the car lost in weight about 500 kg, which in conjunction with the increase in the capacity of the power plant to 778 HP allowed us to achieve a 2.1 with the acceleration to 100 km/h. Suffice it to say that the cars of the championship «Formula 1″ accelerated to the same value at 1.7 and 1.9 s.
