Supercar Slap Down: Tesla Model S P85D Destroys Ferrari 550 in Street Battle
19 Décembre 2014 - Carbuzz
Supercar-killing EV takes no prisoners. We weren’t exaggerating when describing the Tesla Model S P85D as a supercar killer.
When the Californian carmaker unveiled its latest, range-topping iteration of the popular EV, it revealed the addition of an extra motor which meant the sedan boasted 691 hp and 687 lb-ft of torque and was able to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. Top speed was a claimed 250 km/h and the quarter-mile would be clocked in 11.8 seconds.
Putting this to the test, the man behind Rego Apps and the “10 Hours Of Walking In NYC As A Lamborghini” parody, took on a Ferrari 550 on the street and left it for dead. No great surprise given that, despite having a 485-hp 5.5-liter V12, it only manages a 4.2-sec 0-100 km/h time. That said, there’s no prizes for guessing which wins in the styling department.
