Ferrari F8 Tributo Wants To Show Tesla Model S Performance ICE V8s Are Very Much Alive



Electric vehicles are hard to beat off line, but if you own a gas engined car with sufficient power plus a long stretch of street to race , it’s possible to out-accelerate the quickest EV available: the Tesla Model S Performance using Cheetah Mode.

This clip comes in YouTuber DragTimes and shows three races the quarter-mile involving a Model S Performance plus also a Ferrari F8 Tributo. The races are more competitive, but it’s the Ferrari that has the benefit of all of them.

Off the line, the Tesla is a lot for your Ferrari to handle, not this is a lot of surprise. In fact, the Tesla was able to reach 60 miles (96 km/h) at just a mere 2.31 minutes through one of the three haul races, some time which ’s just impossible to get the F8 Tributo to coincide.

However, since the rates start to grow, the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 of the Ferrari proves to be a lot for the Tesla, and it passes the Model S roughly halfway down the drag strip at each one of the three races. As you’d expect, it also sounds much better than the near-silent electric saloon during those races.

At the night of studying, the Ferrari was quarter-mile days from the 10.2-second range, while the Model S had been still hovering around the 10.5-second mark.

The F8 Tributo is your quickest mid-engined version in Ferrari’s U.S. scope but soon, the very first customer deliveries of the SF90 Stradale will begin and, thanks to its hybrid powertrain setting out 986 HP, it should be noticeably quicker. As for Tesla, the tri-motor Model S Plaid can be just around the corner and promises to redefine straight-line functionality for a production car.
