Tesla made a big claim when it said the new Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode was the quickest accelerating car currently in production. It was only a matter of time before people began putting that claim to the test against a host of supercars.
This video from YouTube channel features a Model S P100D up against a stock Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4, one of the quickest cars we've ever tested. The Lamborghini has a high-revving V10, all-wheel traction, and a quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission, but it's no match for the Tesla's instant electric torque.
Well, it's no match at first. By the end of the quarter-mile, the Lamborghini has nearly caught the Model S. If this were a half-mile race, the Huracan would definitely be walking away from the Tesla.
That's the thing with Tesla's ultra-quick cars–their acceleration is mind-bending, but their electric motors quickly run out of steam around 100 mph. The Lamborghini is quick to 60, but at that point, it's only just getting started.
But as great as all the P100D's zero-RPM torque is, it doesn't stand a chance against a tuned Nissan GT-R. Internal combustion remains supreme, for now.
