2017 Tesla Model S: Faster Than $1.15 Million McLaren P1!
As one of the fastest cars in existence, the McLaren P1 offers 903hp and costs a fortune – $1.15 million to be exact. Paired with 723lb-ft torque, it is capable of touching 60mph from a standstill in 2.8 or 2.6 seconds.
The 2017 Tesla Model S, costing nearly a tenth of the McLaren P1, is now able to make the 0-60mph dash in a whopping 2.5 seconds thanks to a 100kWh battery.
With this, the only production cars quicker than the Model S are Ferrari LaFerrari (2.4 seconds) and the Porsche 918 Spyder (2.2 seconds). They cost $1.4 million and $845,000 respectively.
Owners of the range-topping P90D model would only need to top up an additional $20,000 for the larger battery, pushing the ultimate cost of the Model S P100D to about $130,000.
It also gives owners of the electric sedan 315 miles of all-electric range, a figure that any other upcoming ‘Tesla killer’ would have a hard time surpassing.
On the Model X, the 100kWh battery would help it to 60mph in 2.9 seconds, with a total range of 289 miles. That’s pretty good considering the weight of the crossover. We wonder what a Model 3 P100D would be able to do.
