A YouTube video shows a Tesla Model S Plaid beating the Ferrari F8 Tributo and Audi R8 V10 twin-turbo modified over a quarter mile.
YouTube video posted by Tesla Model S Plaid owner shows the electric car beating the Ferrari F8 Tributo and Audi R8 V10 bi-turbo modified car over a quarter-mile range. Tesla is the world’s leading manufacturer of electric vehicles, and the Model S Plaid is the company’s flagship vehicle. It’s a luxury sedan that might look like a harmless family car from the outside without any design flair for fancy Italian sports cars or American muscle cars, but it’s known as a straight-line speed demon.
Last year, the car broke the world quarter-mile record set by the Bugatti Chiron when comedian and late-night talk show host Jay Leno cut the distance in just 9.247 seconds in a Model S Plaid. The car then broke its own record last November, running the quarter-mile in barely 8.944 seconds at the Maryland International Racecourse. Plaid has also previously raced and beat a number of other fantasy cars, including the Lamborghini Hurracan, Porsche 911 Turbo, Shelby GT500 and more.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by Tesla Blade Channel He recounts four drag races that took place on May 5 at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida. Given the previous feats of the Model S Plaid, it may have been a given that it would easily beat all other supercars in drag racing. The Ferrari F8 Tributo is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that puts out 710 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 568 pound-feet of torque at 3250 rpm. However, the Model S Plaid overtook the Ferrari despite allowing it to move. The Audi R8 V10 also suffered from the same feat that left Tesla far behind and sprinted to victory over the quarter mile. The Model S Plaid produces a maximum of 1,020 horsepower and a top speed of 200 mph. It is also said to have reached 60 mph from a standstill in less than two seconds, making it the fastest accelerating production vehicle ever.
The fastest production car in the world
Besides German and Italian sports cars, Tesla also faced competition from an unexpected quarter – a hill-wrecking Model S Plaid modified to run at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado. Like any rally car, it’s also been beefed up with a round top and all unnecessary interior amenities have been stripped away to make it lighter and faster. However, the car finished the quarter-mile course in just 9.71 seconds, behind the unmodified Tesla Model S Plaid.
It’s unlikely the S Plaid would have done well either against any of the sports cars on a twisting racetrack with neat corners and neat steps, but that’s not what the car was designed for anyway. You’re supposed to do one thing and one thing on your own – be insanely fast in a straight line, and that’s something you do really well. Given its brute strength and record-breaking acceleration, it is unlikely that a road-legal internal combustion vehicle would be able to drop Tesla Model S Plaid is off its heyday anytime soon.
