A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that the terms “electric car” and “street racing” would be used in the same sentence. These days, the Porsche 918 is the king of the hill when it comes to hybrid cars (and cars in general, I guess) but when you talk about full on EV power, the name Tesla seems to remain at the forefront.
We’ve all grown accustomed to seeing Tesla P90D sedans, dragging the four-wheeled competition in Ludicrous mode, particularly in dig races. Now, with improved top-end capability, this driver is ready to take on modified street bikes and cars in full on roll racing action.
The P90D takes on a GSXR 600 with exhaust mods, intake mods, and a performance tune in the first contest. After multiple passes; it’s too close for me to call – you have a look. Next up is a C7 Corvette with a Paxton supercharger against a bigger street bike (also seen near the end of the first contest). Now, we have a dig race between the Tesla and a very brave guy in a LS3 equipped Corvette with a nitrous shot. Teslas are extremely quick out of the hole but the ‘Vette makes a race out of it at the end. There are a couple of bonus races between two souped up Nissan GT-Rs and a DSM Evo as well.
