Tesla Model X vs Ferrari Superfast is the craziest drag race you will see today
This is the most uncanny drag race imaginable- it's also the perfect analogy for the current state of the automotive industry.
On one side of the strip sits a magnificent piece of 'old-school' engineering, the Ferrari 812 Superfast with its 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 with 792 horsepower and RWD only is the perfect homage to the past 100 years of the car.
On the other sits a car that could not be more different if it tried,the Tesla Model X P100D all-electric family SUV- well a family SUV with 588 hp and AWD courtesy of 2 electric motors.
As you can see in the video the Ferrari wins by a tiny margin, that's where the analogy comes in.
You see while the old school internal combustion engines are still the best choice for most situations thanks to their flexibility, in right circumstances electrics are just as good if not better. Yeah, the Tesla lost, and yes you would be stupid to have it over the Ferrari that being said the Tesla is nearly a quarter of the price of the Ferrari it can also car 7 people and has a boot that could fit half the Ferrari...
I'm sorry internal combustion, I love you dearly but your days are truly numbered.
