Ferrari 458 Speciale vs. Tesla S P85D + Donuts!

June 11th, 2015

This clip portrays an epic battle between the most powerful all-electric production vehicle ever and an elite internal combustion powered Italian supercar. It comes to you from the EuroSpeedWay Lausitzring in Germany. Car number one, a Tesla S P85D, gets the initial hole-shot on car number two, a Ferrari 458 Speciale. After that, the Ferrari flexes its proverbial muscles and runs away with the contest.

Allow me to set the stage: A sunny afternoon at Piedmont Dragway in Julian, North Carolina. A ground pounding turbocharged late-model Mustang rolls out amid smoke and lights. He Read More

Drag Racing Tesla S P85D vs. BMW M4

April 10th, 2015

Far be it from us to condone street racing under any circumstances, but check out this rolling drag race between an all-American Tesla electric S P85D and the latest BMW M4. The heavier Tesla sedan may have met its match in a rolling race with the sporty M4 coupe, as the BMW gains a slight lead at the start. Nope, despite the M4 grabbing the early lead, the more powerful S P85D pulls to the forefront and stays there for the duration. The BMW turns out to be no match for the Tesla with 691-horsepower and totally-electric “insane-mode” that delivers Read More

Tesla S P85D vs. Bentley GT3 R

April 6th, 2015

Take a look at these two state-of-the-art luxury vehicles as they blast down this 2,500-foot private airstrip. If you look at the specifications, you would expect the Tesla to make short work of the Bentley in this contest of pure acceleration. Not so fast! The P 85D takes the lead out of the hole with all 691-horsepower hitting the pavement, instantly while the GT3 R waits for the turbochargers to catch-up. This leaves the Bentley looking at the Tesla’s taillights until about the quarter-mile mark. At that point the big turbocharged V8 gathers the electrically powered Tesla back-in and it Read More
