    Tesla Model S P85D vs Ferrari 458 drag race (VIDEO)

    Tesla Model S P85D

    Extreme new 691hp Tesla Model S P85D takes on the Ferrari 458 supercar in a drag race.

    We know what the new all-paw Tesla Model S P85D can do to a Ferrari 575 when its accelerator pedal is mashed into the carpet, but how about the newer and more powerful mid-engine 458?

    The Ferrari 458 is powered by a 570hp 4.5-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with rear-wheel drive while the Tesla features four electric motors to deliver a whopping 691hp. Which will win? Watch the video below.

    Yes, the Italian petrol-guzzler won but the Tesla didn’t do too poorly at all. The electric all-wheel drive super sedan leaped ahead of the Ferrari instantly and stayed several car lengths ahead until the two cars were well into triple digit speeds. So unless you’re on a race track or a road without speed limits, the Tesla is the faster car.

    Drunk guys review a Tesla Model S P85 (VIDEO)

    Tesla Model S

    Hilarious Tesla Model S review includes p*rn viewing and an Asian guy trapped in the trunk.

    How does one review a car when they’re intoxicated and therefore unable to drive? Get a sober guy to pilot while you and your drunk mate conduct a highly informative, scientific and completely serious car review… Sort of.

    Naturally, the intoxicated chaps were drawn to the massive iPad-like touch-screen fitted to the Tesla Model S dashboard which can be used as a web browser and therefore can be used to view Youtube, or another kind of tube which is a bit dirtier.

    Words cannot describe how much of a hilarious shambles this car review video is, so just sit back and watch…

    Tesla Model S destroys Ferrari in street race (VIDEO)

    Tesla Model S P85D

    691hp Tesla Model S P85D embarrasses a V12 Ferrari 575 in a street race.

    What ever happened to the phrase ‘there’s no replacement for displacement’? Well, the techno-wizards from Tesla completely rewrote the rulebook with the 416hp BMW M5-rivalling Model S P85 electric car. That game-changer is rear-drive only, but now Tesla has launched an all-wheel drive version with a thumping 691hp – the same as a Lamborghini Aventador.

    The Tesla Model S P85D will sprint to 62mph in a scarcely believable 3-ish seconds and can absolutely haul arse. And it doesn’t emit any nasty atmosphere-polluting chemicals or make any real noise. It’s also incredibly luxurious with an interior that the Back to the Future movie directors couldn’t even have imagined. It really does it all. Relentlessly quick, environmentally friendly with unbelievable tech and design from such a young company.

    The best thing though, is that it’ll worry most supercars and make mince-meat out of a 508hp V12 Ferrari 575. Here’s video evidence of that.

    Drag Strip Showdown: 2014 Corvette Stingray vs Tesla Model S (VIDEO)

    You would think in the 2014 Corvette Stingray vs Tesla Model S showdown their can be only one winner. Think again, as the results may surprise you.

    They come from two different universes and have very little in common. One is a hybrid for West Coast greenies while the other is a performance car that eats gasoline for breakfast.

    One trait they do share is quickness. So Drag Times set the vehicles in a drag strip showdown at Palm Beach International Raceway for epic quarter-mile battle.

    Who wins? We don’t want to give it away, but let’s just say it’s really, really close…

    ‘Deskla’: The Office Desk Made From A $70,000 Tesla Model S

    Introducing ‘Deskla’, The $70,000 Desk Made From A Tesla Model S

    When it comes to having the sickest office setup ever, it’s hard to stump the guy with the flat screen TV mounted onto his cubicle. You’re going to have to reach out a little farther to get something no one’s ever seen.

    Introducing Deskla, the $70,000 office desk that was created using the body of a Tesla Model S. If you were wondering, yes, the headlights work.

    You might’ve heard about Lamborghini desks but those aren’t full-circle pieces of furniture that you could actually make into your entire workspace. The concept was drawn up by Vuolo Design, Hero City which is a club for entrepreneurs at the Draper University.

    East Bay Muscle Cars was commissioned by Vuolo Design to craft the desk. The aluminum Model S shell used was a “factory reject” and was donated to the project in Brentwood, CA by Tesla.

    “The ‘Deskla’ features three 120v electrical outlets, six USB ports and working Tesla LED lights, which are all powered via the car’s original charge cord. ” – Luxury Launches
