Almost everyone should recognize the Shelby Cobra as being one of the faster of the sports type cars out there. It was not built to drag race but, at the same time it is so light it could not help beating the other cars.

Even though it is not a straight line car it will get the job done in a hurry. Now on to the Tesla Model S P85D that Grandma is driving. It is entirely Electric powered. Not a Hybrid like the Prius or many of the other cars like it out on the roads.

Not only is it Electric giving it the advantage of having torque from 0 RPM but, it is also AWD! Yes All Wheel Drive has sort of been proven not to be the fastest in straight line racing. However having electric motors making full torque from 0 on up and the AWD advantage sure seems to help.

Lastly we have what must be some engineers with some form of a sense of humor 😕 They have named the 2 High Speed Driving modes Insane and the faster one Ludicrous. Now when you think back was it from a cartoon or the ever epic “Space Balls” Movie that coined the term Ludicrous Speed?
Either was you want to look at it this car scored a 103 on a 100 scale making it the highest scoring car ever? So how is it that an automobile that uses no fossil fuels at all scores the highest ever?

Well to me it is very interesting indeed while at the same time being very scary!
