We have the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Aston Martin DB11, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, Ferrari 488 GTB, Lexus LC500, McLaren 570GT Mercedes Benz AMG GTR, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 718 Cayman S, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Tesla Model S P100D.
All gathered together on an 15,000 ft airstrip at Vandenberg AFB to find out which car is the fastest. Obviously these 12 competitors display a wide range of power and performance, so why do we continue lining them up for one, over-the-top drag race?… Because We Can!
Off the line the Tesla’s electric motor dominated and was the fastest in the quarter-mile by rocketing 125 mph and finishing in 10.5 seconds.If it wasn’t already abundantly clear that electric vehicles have a massive advantage when it comes to acceleration, this test should clear things right up.
