Tesla Model S P85D vs P85 Energy Consumption Testing
Since we have both the new Tesla 691HP dual motor all wheel drive Model S P85D as well as the previous 416HP single motor rear wheel drive P85 available for testing we decided to do a quick drive of mixed city and highway driving to compare the efficiency of the two.

Tesla Model S P85D Shocks the Dyno with 864 ft-lbs of Torque
We had some time with a brand new Tesla Model S P85D to do some initial testing before our StreetCarDrags event on January 18th, 2015 where we’ll have 12 Tesla Model S cars racing themselves and other exotic cars down the drag strip at Palm Beach International Raceway. Since the Florida weather provided us with pouring rain all day and the track was closed, performance testing wasn’t quite an option, although as you’ll see later, we did some launches in the rain and the Tesla did amazing.

Lamborghini Huracan vs Aventador Heads up Drag Racing 1/4 Mile
We’ve found some pretty good footage of a new Lamborghini Huracan going heads up against it’s big brother Aventador in Greece. The Huracan with it’s 5.2L V10 and 610HP through a 7 speed dual clutch transmission along with AWD seems to come off a bit softer than it’s larger and more power full Aventador sibling powered by a 6.5L V12 with 700HP and a 7 speed ISR transmission (single clutch). Once both cars are under power the Aventador still walks away from the Huracan a good bit through the 1/4 mile and beyond.
