Watch the Infamous Tesla P85D Out-Sprint Three Supercars
When Tesla announced its hallowed dual-motor Model S P85D, its sporting intentions were fairly plain to see: 691 horsepower, road-gripping all-wheel-drive, and a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds. App developer and supercar aficionado Allen Wong knew he needed to try one, so he signed up for a test drive, and in the process stole the Internet spotlight. He recorded the drive, during which he was challenged to a drag race by someone in a Ferrari 575M. The video went viral and spawned two follow-up races. While the P85D might not be the fastest through the quarter mile, its zero to 60mph sprint is simply astounding. Watch all three passes below. Tesla Model S P85D vs. Ferrari 575M
The decade old 575M rolls up next to Wong in the test car, looking for a race, and admittedly it isn't close at all. The starting sequence is a bit wonky, but by the time both cars get on the power, the Tesla is about four car lengths ahead of the Ferrari grand tourer: 691 hp to 508 hp.
Tesla Model S P85D vs. Ferrari 458 Italia
The test drive must have gone well, because by the second go-around, Wong sits behind the wheel of his own Model S P85D. His opponent? A Ferrari 458 Italia, driven by its owner and lead singer of the band ATTILA. For two out of three passes, the Tesla heads the Ferrari through the quarter mile, which ends at the back of the overpass. Sure, the P85D doesn't have the Ferrari's top-end speed, but in terms of zero to 60mph, it looks nigh untouchable: 691 hp (4,936 pounds) to 570 hp (3,274 pounds).
Tesla Model S P85D vs. Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
For the third run, Wong brought out his own Aventador to give the P85D a run for its money: 691 hp against 691 hp. It does. The Aventador pushes past the Tesla, but not after the Model S blitzes the Lamborghini on the start. The V12 Lambo might get to 60mph in a scant 2.9 seconds, but the dual-motor Tesla somehow does it faster. In fact, Wong notes it even held off the Aventador up to 80mph.
