Electricity vs. the Prancing Horse

And here we are again. This time, instead of the Lamborghini Urus, it’s now up against the world’s most popular sports car company: Ferrari. And not just any Ferrari, it’s the latest and fastest and most powerful 812 SuperFast.

Just like with the Urus and Model X, the Ferrari is powered by a conventional engine, specifically, a 6.5L V-12 that produces 789 horsepower and 530 lbs-ft of torque. That much torque isn’t going to knock out a Model X, I mean really?

I’m a fan of Ferrari’s because Lamborghini’s just aren’t as appealing to me. Sure, it’s easier to buy a Lamborghini because there isn’t that  much politics involved. Yes, Ferrari won’t let you buy one of their cars even if you have the money if they deem you as unworthy.

In the race, you can see that the Model X obviously has the advantage – initially. After that, the 812, with all it’s gears, too over the race. I was actually surprised that the 812 was able to do that. Very few supercars can outrun a P100D Model X after it’s out accelerated them in a drag race.

This is one of those few cars. But I have to say that it was a most entertaining race watching them battle it out for who’s the fastest in a straight line. Was not expecting the results.

I think it has to do with the Model X’s weight. It weighs 2,500 kilograms in the P100D configuration whereas the 812 weighs 800 kilos less. So there you are folks! If you have the money to buy a sports car that can beat a Model X, look no further.

If you don’t have the money and want to initially beat an 812 but then lose to it a few seconds later, buy the Model X. I’d love to buy both, though.

But I’m young, dumb and broke.
