With customer deliveries of the potent Tesla Model S P85D recently commencing, we’ve already seen how the car compares to a Ferrari 550 and a blue Lamborghini Aventador. Now the very first video of the car hitting the dyno has been released and as you’d expect, it laid down some exceptionally impressive numbers.
During the runs, it was particularly difficult to rein in the Model S P85D’s incredible amounts of instant torque without the wheels spinning. When a successful dyno was completed, the Model S P85D managed to lay down 413 hp and more impressively, 864 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, electric cars like the Model S are well-known to be difficult to dyno and quite often record curious figures. After all, Tesla claims that the two electric motors from the Model S P85D produce the equivalent of 691 hp and 687 lb-ft of torque!
