Tuned NISMO GT-R v Tesla Plaid: DRAG RACE

It's time for another gas v electric drag race!

We've revived the Tesla Design X Plaid, and it's going up against a !

So let's have a look at the stats. Normally the GT-R is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 that can produce 600hp and 650Nm of torque. However, it's been tuned, and as an outcome, it can now produce an incredible 810hp and 890Nm of torque! This power is sent to all 4 wheels, and it suggestions the scales at 1,725 kg.

Then together with it we have the Tesla. It's powered by 3 electric motors, and these combine to produce 1,020 hp and 1,420 Nm of torque. However although it's up on power, it's likewise well up on weight compared to the GT-R, weighing in at 2,539 kg!

So the Tesla is a fair bit more effective, but it's likewise a lot much heavier! But will the weight distinction prove definitive? There's only one way to find out … LET'S RACE!

Thanks to everyone for providing us their vehicles:

    Those MX Plaids still feel quick rolling from 60mph/100kmh with people in them, they are insane. Nothing like them on the road.

    1. @ayushmalpeddi2793 Avatar

      The reason is because if you look at the torque/hp curve versus speed, the Model X/S only give the full 1000hp+ after you go past 60-70mph. Below those speeds the Model S/X plaid have limited power.

      In other words, it is possible to generate a higher g-force accelerating from 60mph instead of 0mph in certain conditions which is wild.

      But it doesn’t – or rather it does, but in two metrics only – straight line acceleration with a battery charge of more than 50%, and interior space. If a Model X tried to keep up on a track or even a long, winding road, all its occupants would lose their lives.
