If this was 2008 instead of 2018, a car like the Ferrari 812 Superfast would probably be considered the very best in its class. Alas, that’s obviously not the case, as naturally-aspirated engines are no longer top of the food chain, so to speak.
Yet, this is still Ferrari’s most powerful naturally-aspirated production car ever. Its 6.5-liter V12 unit is capable of producing a whooping 800 PS (789 HP) and 718 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque, which are delivered via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission solely to the rear wheels.
Again, not the most efficient setup, as most modern supercars and hypercars boast all-wheel drive to go with their turbocharged or electrified power units.
Still, the Ferrari is anything by slow. As long as you don’t botch the launch, you’ll be doing 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds and be on your way to 340 km/h (211 mph), should the road ahead allow you to do so.
On paper, the Tesla Model X P100D is about as quick as the 812 to 100 km/h, thanks to its all-wheel drive electrified setup. There are two electric motors in total, one at the front producing 193 kW (262 PS / 259 HP) and another at the rear, with 375 kW (509 PS / 502 HP).
In the end, despite the Model X getting better traction off the line and pulling away more efficiently, the Ferrari caught up to it and managed to secure a faster 1/4 mile time.
