Instant torque’s gonna get you

Tesla Model S P85D v Ferrari 458

The Ferrari 458 Italia is a pretty quick car, right. In a straight out drag race there’s not many cars that can beat it. Surely a miserly four-door Tesla Model S can’t do it?

Well, off the line, yes, it can. And by some margin. This is thanks to the Tesla’s near-instant torque and all-wheel drive grip.

And the Tesla’s not just happy hosing Ferraris off the line either. See below for more.
