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 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds. Top speed was a claimed 155 mph 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 0-60 mph time. That said, there’s no prizes for guessing which wins in the styling department.
