Tesla’s huge fan base has lately come up with the idea the California-based automaker should deliver a supercar, but others think they already done that in the form of the luxurious Model S sedan.
We’re not going to debate the idea of a Tesla supercar, especially since the electric powertrain it uses is already compelling enough. But even when you’re dealing with full torque from zero rpm and that insane Ludicrous mode, it might not be enough to beat a full bloodied supercar – built by a company that has decades of experience in delivering such thrilling rides. In the footage below you’ll see the P85D, complete with Ludicrous mode, taking it up against the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4.
The Tesla Model S in its P85D configuration comes with a dual-motor electric vehicle setup, bringing 503 horsepower on the rear axle and 259 hp on the front. This is impressive both on paper and on the road – with 62 mph done in less than three seconds. But on the other side of the isle sits the Italian supercar packing 610 hp (448 kW) and 413 pound-feet (560 newton meters) of torque thanks to that awesome sounding naturally-aspirated V10 5.2-liter engine, linked to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission.
