Pretty interesting reading, clearly buying the P85D with insane mode is understandably not as insane as a P90D or P100D. Guess these people have more money than brains.

Unreal in that the p85 and p90 have been beating Hellcats on drag-strips.  How insane is insane?

Interesting is that in the lawsuite it states they cannot get the car to hit the stated 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds, they only get 3.5 seconds proving insane mode is not insane.

:dizzy:

Ford had a lawsuit on the Cobras back in about 1998 when they actually had to bump the horsepower up to match what was advertised.

      Hyundai has announced that the upcoming Kona crossover would be coming with an electric powertrain and we have gotten our first look at it.
      A spy photographer caught a Kona EV mule charging up. It looks like your standard Kona with the only difference that there is a charging door on the front. We're assuming this means a solid panel takes the place of the standard grille. 
      Current rumors have Hyundai offering two battery options for the Kona EV - 40 and 64 kWh. The larger battery is projected to have a range of around 210 miles. 
      Expect to see the Kona EV debut sometime next year with sales beginning in late 2018 or 2019. It is unclear whether or not the model will be sold here.

      Rolls-Royce has made it clear that it plans on introducing electric powertrains to their vehicles in the future once the technology has fully developed and customers want one. But new regulations are forcing their hand.
      Rolls' CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös told Car and Driver that the Phantom will receive the option of an electric powertrain sometime during its lifecycle. The platform that underpins the Phantom and future models have been built with electrification in mind. 
      “We are more regulator driven than consumer driven. We might well see, in the next decade, some Asian markets closing down city centers to combustion engines completely. And then, of course, [electrification] is a must,” said Müller-Ötvös.
      Müller-Ötvös admitted that no one is clamoring for an electric Rolls at this time, but expects that situation to change in the next 10 years or so.
