Watch: Tesla Model S Takes Down A $300K Lamborghini Aventador


With half the world in quarantine, this video of a Tesla Model S taking down a Lamborghini Aventador three times its price in a drag race will definitely cheer you up.

Matt Watson from CarWow organized this drag race with the another popular Youtuber Yiannimize. Matt drove a 2020 Tesla Model S Performance while the Yiannimize brought his Lamborghini Aventador S Coupe.

On the other hand, we have the Lamborghini Aventador S Coupe, also simply known as the Aventador S. It is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine producing 740 HP and 690 Nm of torque. It weighs a lot less than the Model S at just 1,500 kg but costs almost three times as much at £251,469.

In total, both cars raced three times in a quarter-mile drag race. You’ll have to watch the video to find out who the winner is.

However, I’ll tell you that the Tesla Model S P100D completed the quarter-mile in 10.4 seconds, which I think is some kind of record in itself.

The current fastest quarter-mile drag timing for a Tesla Model S is 10.51 seconds.

The “Tesla Model S Vs Lamborghini” drag race also featured a rolling acceleration test and a braking test.

Lamborghini won the braking test because of wider tires and a 740 kg weight advantage over the Tesla Model S P100D.
