It is a great day for a nice beautiful drag race and that is exactly what we are going to do. Not race, of course, but watch this amazing 1/4 mile drag race starring a Tesla Model S P85D versus a Ferrari F12! Now, we have this electric car whose main job is to keep the environment clean and not spread emissions! The Ferrari F12, on the other hand has its macho attitude and roaring engine! So, let’s hit it off! The dragstrip is ready and empty just for these two beasts to measure their strength!
We have pretty close powertrains as the Tesla Model S P85D is equipped with 691 horsepower! We assume that both cars are stock so this would mean that the Tesla is capable of developing 60 miles per hour in just 3.2 seconds, at least that’s what the Tesla engineers claimed. Great performance time, whatsoever.
The Ferrari F12, on the other hand has something more than the Tesla Model S with the staggering 730 HP. Assuming this Ferrari is also stock, we know that it has a 6.3 L V12 engine with 509 lb/ft of torque. This one goes from 0 – 60 mph in 3.1 seconds which is a tide better than the Tesla! Anyway, the race is off and both cars give amazing performance! We don’t want to be bias so it is up to you to choose your favorite! We would only like to emphasize a joke told by a fan: No matter what, the Tesla will charge for free afterwards, the Ferrari will spend $90 for a tank!
Finally, read more about the Model S!
