Tesla is making an electric car that's as fast as a Ferrari

What costs $135,000 (£102,080), runs on a 100 kWh electric battery, has a range of 613 km and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds?

Anyone with the answer, 'the Tesla Model S P100D' - the points are yours. 

The electric car company has shown off its latest model of futuristic vehicle, which sports the third fastest acceleration time of any production vehicle ever. From a car with four doors. And five adult seats. And room for two kids as well. Seriously - you put the car in 'Ludicrous mode' press the accelerator and experience speeds that people usually have to spend the better part of half a million quid to feel.
