SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Going 0 to 60 in three seconds can be unnerving for a lot of people.
This was proven when Brooks Weisblat of DragTimes recorded passengers reactions to the 0-to-60 jump that occurs when he hits the "Insane" button in the Tesla Model S P85D.
The $120,000 vehicle has a 221-horsepower front motor and a 470-horsepower rear motor. The "insane mode" allows the car to use all 691 horsepower at once.
"With 0-60 mph coming in just 3.1 seconds along with no audible clue of what's about to happen, the aggressive launch brings out some very interesting and funny reactions, including a flying iPhone that gets stuck to the back seat from the G forces," Weisblat wrote on the blog.
The P85D is a significant improvement from the P85, which DragTimes compared in a drag race in December and found even with a head start, the P85D outperformed the P85 by a decent margin.
Weisblat did not put anyone in danger.
"It's very safe, the car has all-wheel drive and is very stable the entire time. We've even done 0-60 in 3.3 seconds in the rain with no tire spin at all," he told Mashable.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk noticed the video and tweeted it Wednesday morning.
