British racer Archie Hamilton wanted to test the performance of an electric car against the superpower LaFerrari . He therefore organized a start-up contest between two electrics (a Tesla S P90D Ludicrous and a Rimac Concept_One) in front of the said Ferrari LaFerrari. The scene took place in Croatia on an airstrip .
An initiative of Archie Hamilton
Many videos on multiple YouTube channels on the theme of drag racing has allowed us to see the incredible acceleration of an electric car. We have already discussed the capabilities of a Tesla Model S opposing a Musclecar or the Tesla Model X facing the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. And greatly increase their performance if the Ludicrous Mode is engaged.But will these series electric models be sized against a V12 hybrid engine of more than 900 horsepower ? An initial response was provided by Archie Hamilton in a start-up contest putting face to face two electric and a hybrid supercar. It is on a closed track in Croatia that the Briton has carried out two races of Titans to close the debate on the subject. To do this, he pitted a Rimac Concept_One, a Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous and a Ferrari LaFerrari.
An upper motor torque
Indeed, the first duel was determined as the sedan, even with the Ludicrous mode that allows it to reach 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds is no match for the Croatian Rimac Concept_One. But what about the two supercars knowing that both reach 0 to 100 in only 2.6 seconds? Again, it’s no surprise that the Rimac stood out against the Italian LaFerrari with its four electric motors to 1000 horses issuing him a couple of 1600 Nm. As for Ferrari, it is equipped a hybrid V12 engine with an output of 963 horsepower and 900 Nm.
