Can A Tesla Outgun A Ferrari 458 Speciale?
The Ferrari 458 Speciale and the Tesla Models S P85D are two very different cars— but both pack a lot of horsepower. The Tesla comes out on top when you look at the numbers with 700 horsepower versus the Ferrari's lesser 630 horsepower. But that's not the end of the story when it comes to performance. Despite Tesla being an electric car that can play with the big boys, the Ferrari has a few tricks up its sleeve to make the competition more interesting. It's one of the most powerful cars Ferrari has ever made, and has a dry weight of 2,843 pounds to the Tesla's 4,936 pounds. Now all the Tesla's horsepower might be in trouble.

The top speed of the Ferrari also beats the Tesla at 202 mph versus 155 mph. The Ferrari's 4.5-liter V8 can do 0-62 mph in 3 seconds flat while the Tesla manages in 3.2 seconds. Those are all the numbers, but how will the two far against each other in a 1/4 mile drag race? This video has the answer, and it also has some wonderful smokey donuts of celebration at the end.
