Head-To-Head: Tesla Model S P100D Versus Audi RS7 – Video
It’s probably the fairest matchup you’ll find in terms of comparable vehicles if you ignore the type of powertrain employed.
This matchup from Motor Trend features the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous versus the Audi RS7 Performance.
We all know the Model S P100D is quicker to 60 mph than the Audi RS7, but how does it stack up in some other vital categories?
Without even so much as a glimpse at the video we know the Audi wins in fit and finish, as well as interior quality (two low areas for Teslas), but what about handling? Ride comfort? Features?
Check out the video to find out how the two super sedans stack up.
“The world’s quickest sedans battle it out on this episode of Tire Rack’s Head 2 Head.”
“The Audi RS7 and Tesla Model S have nearly identical silhouettes and are within 0.2 inch in length. They’re both all-wheel-drive, four-door, hatchback sedans with an eye toward luxury and supercar-taunting powertrains. The RS7 was the quickest four-door car MOTOR TREND had ever tested, but the Performance model adds 55 more horsepower for a total of 605 hp from its 4.0L twin-turbo V-8. The Tesla Model S P90D was even quicker, and now the P100D with Ludicrous Plus proves to be even more speedy. It is, in fact, the quickest-accelerating vehicle MOTOR TREND has ever tested—ever.”
“MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman get the two über-sedans together to see which world’s quickest sedan is better. This episode includes a special appearance by the fastest gasoline-powered car you can buy today, the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S, and a whole lot of horse manure.”
