Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) 812 Superfast ‘Blows Off’ Tesla’s M-X P100D in 1/4 Mile Drag Race


The Ferrari 812 Superfast is considered the very best in its class, but naturally-aspirated gasoline engines are no longer considered by some as Top of lLine.

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is most powerful naturally-aspirated production car ever made. Its 6.5-liter V12 unit is capable of producing a whooping 800 PS (789 HP) and 718 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque delivered through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission directly to the rear wheels.

This is the most traditional if not the most efficient modern setup, as most modern Supercars and HyperSuper cars feature AWD  (all-wheel drive) fitted with their turbocharged and/or electrified power units.

Still, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is very, very fast.

So if you have 1 and are inclined to get into drag races and get of of the line right, you will be doing 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 secs and be on your way to 340 km/h (211 mph) should the road ahead allow you to do so.

Now come along side you at the stop light a modern interloper, the Elon Musk hyped luxury Tesla’s M-X P100D speedster

In theory, the Tesla Model X P100D is about as quick as the 812 to 100 km/h, thanks to its AWD (all-wheel drive) all electrified setup. There are 2 electric motors in total, 1 at the front producing 193 kW (262 PS / 259 HP) and another at the rear, with 375 kW (509 PS / 502 HP).

The Big Q: Then what happened?

The Big A: Green Light, and despite the M-X getting better traction off the line and pulling away for a time, the Ferrari 812 Superfast caught and passed the Tesla to win and post a solidly faster time at the  1/4 mile flag.

And so as it is in business the iconic Italian made Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector, it wins and pays dividends.

Have a terrific weekend
