We just finished watching a video of the insane reactions from passengers who are blown away by the insane acceleration of the $120,000 electric Tesla Model S EV in Insane Mode.
We have to admit it looks like fun to drive – or just ride in – a Model S EV.
Instantly going from 0 to 60 in a little over 3 seconds is enough to cause some folks to let out more than a few colorful words.
Not surprisingly, the new Tesla, with its all-wheel drive, 691 horsepower and 687 lb-ft of torque, has destroyed just about everybody in drag races, including i8s and Hellcats.
Hitting the Insane Button causes the front and rear motors to engage simultaneously, generating all 691 horsepower at once!
But competitors, don’t despair! The Model S may have finally met its match with this early C6 Corvette.
The video uploader claims the Corvette, with its impressive supercharger and massive grip due to drag wheels and slicks, is spitting out more than 700 hp. Who would argue after the car posted a 1/8 mile run of 6.09 seconds with a trap speed of 104.39 mph.
Other cars with just as much horsepower have fallen victim to the Model S, though, but we got a feeling those drag radials on the Corvette are what made a difference in its whipping of the Tesla.
We’re glad to see the Corvette master the Tesla, but we have to admit seeing this video makes us want to test drive one of the electric monsters, too.
