How does the new AWD Tesla Model S P85D compare against a new Ferrari 458 Italia? We took the two of them onto a quarter mile strip of road to find out.
Tesla Model S P85D | 691 HP | 4,936 lbs | 0-60 3.2 s
Ferrari 458 Italia | 570 HP | 3,274 lbs | 0-60 3.0s
The original Tesla P85D vs Ferrari video that went viral:
This is the rematch that you’ve been asking for. A few of you said it wasn’t fair to race a modern day Tesla with a decade-old Ferrari. So this time, I pitted it against a new Ferrari: The beautiful 458 Italia.
The Tesla has a more powerful engine, but is much heavier than the Ferrari. During these runs, there were two people in the Tesla and one person in the Ferrari. In the third run, the Ferrari was given a slight lead to try to even things out. The 1/4 mile marker ends at the back of the overpass. The Ferrari was driven in Race mode. The Tesla was set to Insane mode.
