Tesla Model S P100D Smokes Ferrari FF – Race Video
It’s an all-wheel drive, launch control battle between these heavyweights, and unusually, this Tesla competitor seats four passengers.
Generally, when we see these races, it’s to prove that a sporty, electric family sedan can outclass a two-seat supercar. However, the Ferrari FF is a hatchback that weighs in at ~4,200 pounds and has room in back for a few passengers. Additionally, it only costs a mere $400,000 or more.
The Ferrari FF is powered by a 651-horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, although this particular model also has a modified exhaust. It produces 540 pound-feet of torque. Ringing it at 800 pounds lighter than the Tesla Model S P100D, and with that amount of power, this Ferrari should be a pretty solid competitor, and perhaps even dominate.
The ~$150,000 Model S P100D with its dual motors and Ludicrous Mode delivers 580 horsepower to the wheels and cranks out a whopping 920 pound-feet of torque.
Drag Times takes the cars out for a little drag racing and roll racing to see how they stack up. Needless to say, the FF doesn’t stand a chance in any of the races.
