Electric GT Tesla Model S At The Track (Video)

We reported last week on the very impressive 0 to 60 mph times of the new Electric GT Championship–prepped Tesla Model S, but didn’t offer much in the way of visual accompaniment at the time. …

With that in mind, I’m posting a video that’s surfaced of an Electric GT–prepped Tesla Model S burning rubber at the track. The video clip doesn’t show too much, just a run down a straightaway and a brief show of how the car handles corners, but it’s worth a watch for those interested in such things.

Here’s the 15 second video:

Autoblog provides more information:

“That big wing on the back looks to be doing its job, too, as the Tesla appears magnetized to the pavement pointing its way out of that first S-turn at Circuit Pau-Arnos. Watch it closely and you’ll get a sense of the speed and handling that has been built into this racer. And just listen to that sound! …

“The car that will compete in the series is a race-prepped Tesla Model S P100D. Despite the ‘#P100’ hashtag in the first video’s description on YouTube, the car in these videos still looks like Electric GT’s earlier P85D test car (which would mean future videos with the updated racer should be even more impressive). The P100D we’ll see on race weekends has shed 1,100 pounds, makes 778 horsepower, and can do 0-62 mph in a jaw-dropping 2.1 seconds.”

With regard to when this will happen (the races), nothing solid has been revealed yet but the first race will reportedly be sometime later this year.
