Tesla Model S vs Holden V8 Supercar In Australia (Video)

Originally published on Gas2.

Here in the Land of the Free and the Home of the absolutely Ludicrous Tesla Model S sedan, we already know that it’s best to just take your expensive man toys at home when a Tesla rolls up to the line next to you. Failure to do so will leave even the most powerful muscle cars looking foolish, but what happens when you line up a Model S alongside an honest-to-goodness race car?

That’s what the guys over at Australia’s Car Advice wanted to find out, so they brought a race-ready V8 Supercars spec. Holden to a closed racetrack, and lined it up alongside a freshly charged up Tesla Model S on full insanity mode.

You can probably guess what happens next, but try to pretend you’re surprised when you leave us a comment about the video in the comments section at the bottom of the page. And, since this is a post about Tesla, be sure to wear a flame suit if you mention the Model X or TSLA delivery figures for 2015. Trust me, you’ll need it!
