In this regard, this ambition was expressed by the S Plaid model, which will go from 0 to 100 km / h in the shortest time in the world. But what can the smooth electric sedan, the iconic Model S, do against the kings of speed, Formula 1 cars?
This is now compared to the P100D Model S powered by a 671 hp and 950 Nm of torque which Tesla claims in 2.7 seconds at 100. The F1 car at the time belonged to the Benetton stable and was powered by a 770 hp V10.
This has now been tested and the result may be very surprising. No matter how much power and grip an F1 car has, Tesla can still squeeze more power on its own, shooting much better than a race car at the start of an acceleration race.
