March 5th, 2015

Tesla-Model-S-P85D-vs-Ferrari-F12We attended a private track rental put on by ADV1 at Palm Beach International Raceway where we setup a race between the Tesla Model S P85D and their Ferrari F12.  Could the 691HP Tesla Model S P85D use it’s all wheel drive advantage to hold off the 730HP V12 powered, rear wheel drive Ferrari F12 down the 1/4 mile?

While the Tesla pulled a great reaction time of .06,  continued on with a 0-60 MPH time of 3.1 seconds and a 1/4 mile time of 11.6 @ 115 MPH, it wasn’t enough to fend off the Ferrari.  The Ferrari F12 came on very strong and won by .52 seconds running very impressive 10.8 @ 132 MPH on regular street tires, no drag radials needed.
