Can the Tesla Model S overtake the Mercedes-AMG GT 63?October 1, 2019
Our publication has repeatedly written about racing in a straight line (drag racing) between different cars. We had competitions of crossovers, SUVs, pickups, and of course very powerful sports cars. But still, when it comes to participating in electric car races, especially the American Tesla Model S, interest in this type of competition is greatly increasing.
This seven-minute video from the Lovecars YouTube team is slightly different in that it actually features three races between the P100D electric car and its German rival Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-Door. Will Tesla win this time?
Under the hood of a powerful Mercedes car is a 577 horsepower V8 twin-turbo engine, which makes it a formidable rival for any candidate, whether it be a two-door supercar or an electric super-sedan.
Yes, this car has impressive technical specifications, but despite this, the electric car is doing the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-Door both at the start and throughout the race – standard 402 meters.
We are also shown a race where both cars begin to accelerate at a speed of 80 km / h. Poor “gas monster”, very sorry for him. Model S left the German in an instant. But I must admit that in this race the driver of Mercedes-AMG was a little mistaken.
It is also noteworthy that both the American electric car and its gas competitor consumed approximately the same amount of electricity and gas, respectively. They lost fuel to cover about 80 km.
