The California based electric luxury automaker has been incredibly successful in turning its Model S owners in wannabe supercar drivers, thanks to the incredible zero rpm torque and huge electric power.
And now that it has a new range topping model – the P100D, of course the videos with it taking the classic sueprcars head one are quickly starting to show up. For this installment of the Tesla meets supercar episode we have the Model S P100D going against an Italian purebred, namely the Lamborghini Huracan. There will be thousands of such videos, but since we’re still in the inception of the craziness, let’s indulge in a moment of madness. Tesla said the P100D is now the fastest mass-produced vehicle on the market – as it can sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.5 seconds. We see here lining up against the Lamborghini Huracan and we want to shame both crews for not using a track and indulging in shenanigans on the public roads.
We see here a few runs, with all of them playing out in the same manner – thanks to that full torque from zero rpm the Model S sprints ahead to an early lead but then as speed increases the Huracan closes the distance and passes the Model S. Again, these guys are on public roads and while they’re not mentioning the trap speeds, they look well into triple digit territory. So, it looks like the Tesla is the fastest thing within the legal speed limit confines, while the supercar is still faster overall.
