Let’s look at the Tesla’s numbers first. The uploader says it’s a Long Range variant, which means it’s got a dual-motor setup driving all four wheels, generating a peak output of 450 hp—that is if it’s a newer car and not an early Long Range model.
Zero to 60 mph times depend on model years when it comes to Teslas because originally, the Model 3 Long Range wasn't as quick as it is today. If you visit the EV-maker's website and look up the performance figures for the Model 3 Long Range AWD, it says 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. That’s pretty quick, and let’s not forget that you also get instant torque in a Tesla.
Don’t worry, though, because the Camaro is no slouch. Its power is produced by a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine, rated at 455 hp (461 PS) and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm) of torque. Everything goes to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Shifting gears yourself isn’t exactly ideal when racing something as quick as a Tesla, but the driver of the Chevy did really well in that department.
In the first race, the Tesla jumped ahead as expected but was quickly reeled in by the gasoline-powered muscle car. When they pulled from 40, it was more of the same, except the Model 3 didn’t get an early lead. Ultimately, this is a good win for internal combustion engines everywhere.
