McLaren 650S vs Tesla Model S P85D Insane Mode

The Tesla Model S P85D’s Insane Mode is all the rage right now, and has been featured in countless videos accelerating in a fittingly insane fashion. Very few cars have been able to put up a fight against the American electric car, especially the hybrid BMW i8.

But, in a video uploaded by DragTimes on July 25, the McLaren 650S takes on the P85D’s maniacal sprint. This video can be viewed below.

Giving the 650S all of its power during the sprint is an award-winning twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 641 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. Both of these figures are trumped by the P85D’s output of 691 hp and a reported 864 lb-ft of torque. But, even with an upperhand on power, the 650S accelerates from 0-60 mph faster – 2.8 seconds, compared to 3.1 seconds. Of course, this could change once we start seeing Ludicrous mode utilized.

Check out the video below to see these two battle it out.
