MOTOR1: Watch Tesla Model S Race Nissan GT-R
Watch Tesla Model S Race Nissan GT-R
Clearly, we’ve all seen more than our fair share of videos showcasing the Model S racing other cars. But, this one gives us a bit more on the actual racing side. The race is held in The Netherlands, at a seemingly casual weekend drag race event – just like we like them. The racers are pretty much everything the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) world can throw at a Tesla Model S: Nissan GTR in various flavors, Audi RS6, highly-tuned Honda Civic (no use in having a drag racing event without it), Ford Mustang, Corvette C7 and others.
One would think that both Teslas, seen racing in the video below smoke its competition. While that may be true to a point, some of these vehicles – and most notably the 1000+ horsepower Nissan GTR – give the Tesla a run for its money. Many will gripe that these videos are getting boring. And, to some extent, they would be right. On the other hand, drag racing and racing in general, are what drives most of the innovation cycle in the car world and is the most important reason why we love cars.
And the new guard, battling the old, makes for a great story. Grab a view at the drag racing battles between the future of motoring and the current establishment.
