Tesla Model S Beats Viper on Drag Strip [Video]
The Dodge has a claimed 0-62 mph or 0-100 km/h time of just under four seconds, so it is comparable to the claimed time of the 414 hp all-electric Model S, which Tesla claims completes the benchmark sprint in just over 4 seconds (they say 4.4, but the actual figure is actually lower).
The video, courtesy of DragTimes, shows the two cars being put head to head on a smooth and even drag strip, so it`s all down to which car is quicker, and there are no exterior factors which could corrupt the result.
The electric car sprints off the line much quicker than the Viper, which actually looks and feels very sluggish. The EV pulls a comfortable lead on the V10 car, and despite the fact that by the end of the quarter-mile, it is beginning to gain ground, the Tesla still nails it in the end.
