Tesla Model S Performance vs Dodge Viper SRT10 drag race [video]

Sets world record

The Tesla Model S Performance was able to outrun the Dodge Viper SRT10 in a drag race.

In October last year we saw a Tesla Model S beating a BMW M5 (F10) at Gingerman Raceway in western Michigan. Now, the Performance variant (85 kWh) of the Model S bested a Dodge Viper SRT10 last weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway.

DragTimes says the electric car finished the race in 12.731 seconds at 110.84 mph (178.38 km/h), performing the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run in only 3.9 seconds. The Tesla Model S now holds the world record for the fastest production EV in the ¼ mile, as confirmed by the National Electric Drag Racing Association (NEDRA).

That was amazingly quick. I wonder how times it could go down the track on a single charge. I bet those batteries were warm, but I could see the reality of decent range when driven normally based on this race.

I actually thought the Viper would start to catch up once it geared up, but it had no chance. The Model S doesn't fail to impress.

Who else? Imagine Model S gets AWD and therefor double grip! No mechanical link of course. Just second electric motor on front axle. AWD Model X should beat Model S despite higher air resistance and added weight.
