Who will win on this Tesla drag race ?!
We`ve seen a lot of Tesla drag race videos lately, and if you thought that craze is over, think again. We are bringing you another epic drag racing skirmish of this kind. To be more precise, we are talking about a Tesla P100D brawling out with a modified Hellcat Challenger. However, we are not talking about some small modifications. Oh no. The owner of this Hellcat has gone for an obvious ECU remap and pulley upgrade. This should make a 6.2L V8 provide around 900HP at the crank. He also went for a pair of ET street pro drag radials.
On the other side, we have the Tesla P100D, and the guys who hoons this electric vehicle have only one goal in mind, which is to continually hunt Hellcats. The Tesla managed to cross the finish line first, however, the modified Hellcat Challenger made the faster time. There are different types of drag races, in some the winner is determined by faster time and in some by who crosses the finish line first. Here, it`s the latter. So, if the Hellcat driver had a better reaction at the light, he would`ve won. Nevertheless, the Tesla putting out such a good fight against a heavily modified Hellcat is more than impressive indeed.
In Tokyo, in the town where the drifting is born! We think that it is the real reason why Tesla decided to make his first steps in the drifting world, in the toughest city where there is no place for beginners!
And what do you think can this silent killer make some burnouts. We were not very expecting from the beginning. But what we saw on the video we were amazed, on the beginning the Tesla was standing on the start line on the drifting track with Nissan Skyline but it looked like Nissan underestimated him and let him tried first. Damn he was sorry after the Tesla started to make noise from the rear tires.
Nobuteru Taniguchi is the driver that literally melts them and spreads fresh burned rubber smell everywhere, simply amazing! Now this is the ultimate proof and we refuse to listen to any rumors for Tesla Model S is incapable for drifting! Just watch him how he spins on the turns and slide the tail and the tires are screaming from the massive horsepower made from the electric engines! Amazing, this video is a must watch!
