(Before It's News)

Following yesterday’s announcement that a new ‘Ludicrous+’ mode has made Tesla’s flagship P100D even quicker by dropping 0-60 mph times down to 2.4 seconds, a new tweet from Elon Musk today suggests that things could get even quicker if the vehicle was “stripped down”.

The first of a series of tweets by Musk today noted that the new P100D Ludicrous+ Easter egg on a Model S will allow it to accelerate to 60 mph in as little as 2.34 seconds. That tweet got a response from the folks at Motor Trend, who kindly offered to validate Tesla’s claim.

Also responding was Twitter user Trevor Clark who calls out Faraday Future’s impressive 2.39 second 0-60 mph time in the FF 91, but through a backhanded compliment. Clark, who mentions Musk in the tweet, notes that Faraday Future’s 1,050 horsepower electric car has no interior and uses lightweight race seats.

Musk would later clarify that the 2.34 second 0-60 mph time is for a production car, however a stripped down race-ready Tesla could see a mind-boggling 0-60 in 2.1 seconds. “Good point. 2.34 would be a production Tesla. Stripped down, maybe as low as 2.1.”
