In the video by Petersen Automotive Museum on their YouTube channel shows drag races between the modified Model S Plaid and the other powerful supercars. The Model S Plaid has an impressive horsepower of over 1,000 and can do zero to sixty miles per hour in less than two seconds. Petersen Automotive Museum put the electric car up against the Ferrari Enzo, Maserati MC12, and the Ferrari F12.
All three of the supercars are powered by V12 engines. The Ferrari Enzo has a 6.0-litre engine which produces 651 horsepower, has a zero to sixty time of just under four seconds, and a maximum speed of 217 mph. The 2004 Maserati MC12 has the same 6.0-litre engine as the Enzo but it slightly less powerful with 621 horsepower. It also has a quick zero to six time of 3.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 205 mph. The 2012 Ferrari F12 has a 6.3-litre engine which produces 730 horsepower, a zero to sixty time below 3.5 seconds, and a maximum speed of 211 mph.
Petersen Automotive Museum captioned the video with a description of the cars and the modifications that the Model S Plaid has had. They wrote:
“The Model S Plaid is loaded with cutting-edge tech, boasts a 396 mile driving range, and can hit 0-60 in just 1.99 seconds. And wait until you see the custom features added by the experts at Unplugged. Things like a satin grey exterior, a Serrano red von Holzhausen vegan Banbū Leather™ interior, and a carbon-fiber wide-body kit with accents that give this Tesla a truly one-of-a-kind feel. And that’s because it is—you won’t find another one like it.
“Launched in 2002 for the 2003 model year, the Enzo was the pinnacle hypercar. The clean-sheet, pointy Formula 1-inspired design was an instant success, as was the naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V-12 mounted amidships. Compared to the relatively simplistic F40 and F50, the Enzo is also considered the first “modern” halo Ferrari, incorporating carbon fiber construction in earnest compared to the green, thick-woven application of prior cars that was prone to degradation. Tech like traction control, active aero, and carbon ceramic brakes were bleeding edge, race-derived stuff in the early 2000s.”
The Model S Plaid dominated the various tests it was put through showing just how impressive the performance is.
