With the equivalent of 691 hp beneath the skin, the Tesla Model S P85D is one of the fastest accelerating cars on the planet despite its size and hefty weight figures. In case you needed reminding of just how brisk the Model S P85D is off the line, here is a video of the car absolutely demolishing a Ferrari 550 in a drag race!
As the name hints, the D in the name refers to the dual-motor setup. The Tesla Model S P85D features the same 470 hp electric motor driving the rear wheels as the existing P85 performance model but now also receives an electric motor providing an additional 221 hp to the rear wheels. As a result, the Model S P85D delivers an extreme 691 hp and 687 lb-ft of torque.
As a result of this power, the lack of a traditional transmission and all-wheel drive, the Model S P85D reaches 96 km/h (60 mph) in a mere 3.2 seconds and completes the quarter mile in just 11.8 seconds.
And then the Tesla pulls over to the next charging station for 15 minutes, because it burnt out all its batteries. Very nice, but useless.
