We have seen the Tesla Model S P90D beat some pretty heavy competition on the drag strip since its release. The Ludicrous mode for maximum acceleration is pretty much unmatched when it comes to off the line speed. I don’t know a super car on the planet that can launch as hard as that Tesla off the line. If its was possible, it would most definitely need to be an all-wheel drive car, with a lot of horsepower.
Enter the perfect competitor, the Lamborghini Aventador LP-700. With an all-wheel drive system borrowed from Audi and roughly 700hp on tap the Aventador will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds. Now the Tesla still produces more horsepower, believe it or not with 762, but this Aventador is equipped with an upgraded exhaust system so its still a toss up.
There have been races between these two cars before, many times i’m sure. What usually happens is the Tesla blows the doors of the Lambo at the start, but very quickly it catches up and passes the P90D by the end of the race. This race is mostly the same, but I feel like it had a lot to do with the driver of the Aventdador. He never seems to get a good launch with the car, not to mention the few missed shifts but still reels that Tesla in quicker than most cars i’ve seen run against it. I felt like this might have been the one that could actually put the hurt on the Tesla, off the starting line. But either way the exhaust not coming from the Avendator is fantastic, plus you get a little backfire flame action.
Here is the 360 degree video of the same race. Look left and watch how ferociously that naturally aspirated V12 throws the driver back into his seat.
And of course, the exhaust camera angle so you’ll want to turn the speakers up for this one.
