    Yeah what I'm getting at is this new one would have a heap more top end then the old one as its significantly quicker over the 1/4

    In other news it seems the Audi rs7 will do a 10.6 1/4 @ 130mph tune only on 21" wheels

    Faaaark!

    RS7 only available with DSG?
    So two 10.6s runs & it's off to VW for a new $20k gearbag?
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    Hardly. High end DSG bags are proving excellent even in race conditions.

    As opposed to two runs in the Tesla and it goes into limp mode?

    Two runs in the Tesla and it needs an 8hr recharge to get you home ...

    Wat? That seems like an admission of something they don't want to admit.

    How can anybody be unimpressed by the performance of the Tesla? It's fucking outrageous.

    The S7 has a dsg, but does not have 700nm and over 400kw like the RS7

    This. How good is it going to be when hot rodders get hold of electric cars and start tuning them for more power, longer range, bigger electric motors etc. The future is going to be insanely fast electric cars that do silent burnouts (what will the cops do????) and leave most ic engines in their wake. I look forward to it but the sound of a tough ic engine will be sorely missed even if they pipe the sound into the cabin it just won't be the same.

    The first step would be someone cramming the guts of a crashed Tesla into an old Vette or something. Get the weight down half a ton and it'll haul serious arse

    The Ludicrous option is AUD $13,500, BUT what hasn't been mentioned anywhere is that it requires the 90kWh battery pack upgrade which is AUD$4100 which gives a claimed 6% range increase.

    Here is a size comparison. They are not small but any means.

    By the time you at LCT & NSW stamp duty on top, it adds around $24k to the price. Apparently they will add the extra speed (not capacity) to existing p85d owners down the track. You can avoid the LCT & stamp duty by going that way.

    The batteries & motors would weigh more than the Vette powertrain & fuel-tank wouldn't it?

    Hey ... segueing to an interesting thought ... an electric race car wouldn't change weight as it used fuel would it?

    Very slightly, but barely enough to measure with really accurate scales let alone worry about.

    The P85 battery pack weighs 600kg and has dimensions of measuring 8 feet (2,450 mm) in length, about 5 feet (2,440 mm) in width and four inches (102 mm) in thickness

    Where are you going to stick all that plus the electric motor and associated electricals?

    The problem is getting all the electrons to the motor at a high rate for a long time. Teslas will eventually go into limp mode when thrashed for a continuous amount of time (ie race track)

    Ludicrous package is a physical upgrade as well, upgraded wiring and fuses among other things.
    As for the pricing, I don't think many people would worry about that considering you're looking at $200k+ anyway, I just priced one ticking everybox got it to AUD$225k.

    I had a P85 for about half a day. Went like stink in a straight line. I ended up getting half the advertised range due to the right foot. The handling wasn't that great.

    Apart from the (minor) storage upgrade they only change a few things to access the extra power (as you say):
    http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/three-dog-day

    Also ACT pays no stamp duty on electric vehicles so add $20k odd to your figure if you live in NSW. If I get one I think I'll be leaving a few options unticked and get them installed later (eg ludicrous mode) if I feel that I really need them.

    Drag strip is about being the fastest; don't see how "interesting" comes into drag racing.

    Being an IT company rather than knowing anything about suspension etc, that's no surprise.
    Being American it's even less of a surprise.
