Tesla Wins Drag Race against Lamborghine Huracan

If you study the history of electric cars and wonder why they lost out to gasoline, one of the factors is that a hundred years ago they were slower than CO2 emitting noisy gasoline cars.

Those days are gone.

Now even the most expensive gasoline cars only get to view the rear side of a Tesla in a drag race. And they still are really noisy when using that much power.

The loser in this particular race was a Lamborghine Huracan, which clocks in at 602 horse power and $278,000 against the Tesla S P 100 D with Ludicrous mode, using 503 horse power at the rear and 259 at the front wheels, for a price tag of $148,000.
