The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is, without a doubt, a fast car. The Tesla Model S Performance isn’t exactly a slouch either, despite its toned-down looks in comparison to the Lamborghini. Under the hood of that Lamborghini is a 5.2-liter V-10 that’s good for 630 horsepower, all of which is set to all four wheels. The Huracan Performante also tips the scales at just a hair over 3,000 pounds. The Tesla, on the other hand, is also all-wheel-drive but delivers a cold-hearted 823 horsepower and benefits from Cheetah stance – a special drag racing program to make it launch ever quicker.
If you watch the first few seconds of this race, you might be inclined to believe that the Tesla Model S actually outraces the Huracan Performante. But, keep watching because there’s a surprise at the end. If you’re wondering why the results turn out as they do, well, the Tesla Model S weighs a stressful 4,940 pounds which also contributes to why it can’t stop as fast as the Huracan from 100 mph.
That said, check out the video – you have to see this race.
