Musk, founder of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), has given Tesla drivers a thrill (wait until you see the video) with a crazy little button on the new Tesla Model S P85D.

The latest S model is equipped with dual ultra-energy-efficient motors that allow it to achieve a top speed of 155 mph.

The best part about it is the digital toggle button on the car’s dashboard screen – the one marked “Insane Mode.”

Pressing the Batmobile-like Insane Mode button shoots the car from zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds flat.

It’s the stuff of Lamborghini Diablos (zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds) and McLaren F1 supercars (zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds).

Drivers must bring the Model S P85D to a complete stop before toggling the aptly-labeled digital button.

From there, the car accelerates to roughly 60 mph within the span of a few seconds… (just enough time for your life to flash before your eyes.)
