Will the latest Ford Shelby GT500 outrun the Tesla Model S electric car?February 13, 2020
In the last video that appeared on the DragTimes team’s YouTube channel, we are shown several races between the Ford Shelby GT500 and the Tesla Model S.
It cannot be denied that the new version of the Ford Mustang sports coupe in the high-performance version of the Shelby GT500 is a real road “monster”. We have already seen how this car can easily overtake many of its competitors. But is his ability enough to surpass perhaps the fastest production electric car in the world? Let’s find out.
Of course, we are talking about the American electric sedan Tesla Model S in a powerful performance Performance. In the last video that appeared on the DragTimes team’s YouTube channel, we are shown several rides between these machines, and although we know that you know which one is faster, watching it is still very fun.
The latest Ford car is equipped with a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, combined with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with 760 horsepower (847 Nm).
The car from the video rides on regular tires and has a starting price of 78,000 dollars
The Tesla Model S Performance electric car offers 588 hp. power and a monstrous moment of 1247 Nm. Plus, and this is probably more important, the electric sedan has four-wheel drive. The minimum price for this vehicle is about 110 000 dollars, which makes it much more expensive than Ford.
Given all these numbers, the winner is obvious. And although we are not shocked – not even surprised – what really caught our attention is Tesla’s acceleration of 0-60 mph (0-96 km / h). During the third race, the “electric bullet” reached 100 km / h in just 2.41 seconds, but the distance of 402 meters was covered 10.6 seconds after the start. The final speed was 201.94 km / h.
