Back in October, Tesla unveiled an all-wheel-drive version of its popular Model S. With dual motors in tow, the new Tesla P85D version of the Model S can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.2 seconds.

During the big product unveiling, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, whom you might also know as the CEO of SpaceX, explained that the car operates in three distinct modes: "normal, sport, and insane."

Now, you might be wondering - just what exactly does "insane" mode feel like?

Wonder no more.

The folks over at Drag Times recently put together a video which captures the reactions of unwitting passengers taking a ride in a high-end Tesla accelerating to 70 MPH in a flash.
