Aside from the fact that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a beast in the straight-line as well, it was created for the road course. But the Tesla Model S Performance has just beaten it to the post. Even the most powerful new supercars are dwarfed by Tesla's explosive power and massive torque. In this recent DragTimes video, an unaltered new vehicle beats the legendary Shelby in the quarter-mile on a genuine drag strip.
For a total of three occasions, these vehicles raced each other. All three times, the Shelby gets a tiny head start by jumping the lights. Even yet, the GT500's 760-hp supercharged V-8 isn't enough. All-wheel-drive grip and rapid acceleration propel the Tesla to the front in every race. Notably, just as the two vehicles reach the finish line, the Shelby begins to draw back. Don't miss out!
