The latest Tesla Model S is a car that is most notable for its awesomely-named 'Ludicrous Mode'., which allows the vehicle to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in a ridiculous -- or ludicrous -- 2.8 seconds. This makes it as adept a sprinter as the likes of hypercars McLaren P1 and LaFerrari. This is made possible by a redesigned fuse on the vehicle's battery.

The vehicle can be equipped with an optional 90 kWh battery pack that boosts its range to a very healthy 300 miles. However, the new fuse design is really one of the key upgrades with this car, as it is set up to monitor the vehicle's current and can cut power when necessary.

This new fuse and a number of seemingly minor tweaks make the latest Tesla Model S a magnificent sprinter that leaves most other cars in the shade. Once again, Tesla continues to be at the forefront of automobile innovation.
