Tesla Model S P100D Humiliating Another Ferrari 458 Italia in a New Drag Race

Tesla Model S P100D humiliating another Ferrari 458 Italia in a new drag race.

This time, the driver of the Ferrari hasn’t fallen asleep at the start of the race, so the drag race is genuine, and is showing us the real difference between these two astonishing vehicles.

Let’s see the cars for the second time:

Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous (maybe is using the Ludicrous Plus mode to be even faster) is an all-electric supercar with all-wheel drive (AWD) that uses two electric motors (one for the front wheels and the other for the rear wheels) producing together 762 HP and 713 lb-ft. of torque (in the Ludicrous Plus mode Tesla does 0 to 60 mph in 2.28 seconds), but its top speed is still limited at 155 mph (250 km/h).

Tesla Model S P100D is quite a heavy vehicle due to its battery pack (the car weighs just over 5,000 lbs. together with the driver).

This time we know for sure that this Ferrari is a Ferrari 458 Italia, which means that is faster than the 458.

Ferrari 458 Italia is a petrol-based exotic supercar with rear-wheel drive (RWD) that uses the same 4.5 Liter V8 engine developing 570 HP and 398 lb-ft. of torque.

Ferrari has less power than the Tesla vehicle, but this exotic supercar is extremely light (weighs only 3,274 lbs.), so its acceleration capability is astonishing.

Besides all these things, Ferrari’s top speed is not limited, the car reaches a top speed of 210 mph (336 km/h), so in a long drag race (800 m) it would win for sure.

The race was very short, but the final result is more than obvious.
