It’s on — a drag race of epic proportions, world’s fastest four-door sedan, Tesla Model S P85D, against Australia’s fastest four-door sedans, Supercheap Auto Racing Holden Commodore V8 Supercar and Walkinshaw Performance W507 HSV GTS. Tesla Model S P85D rockets from 0-100km/h in just 3.3-seconds, while the V8 Supercar does it in 3.4-seconds, but weighs just 1400kg with the driver. Tesla is a road car, almost silent, with free battery replacement after 8 years, so likely to keep doing this for 16 years, while V8 Supercar will last…how long? From Dick Johnson, Supercars won’t travel too far, based on burning 7o litres/100km ethanol, without subsidy costing more than $2/litre.
Strap on as we see who wins — USA v Australia.
