Tesla Model S Race Car

Jan 25, 2017

Category: Rides

Recently released at Autosport International, Tesla unveiled one of their most accomplished feats to date. It’s a racing version of the Tesla Model S, built to race in the Electric GT Championship, and packs a serious punch considering not one drop of gasoline is needed to power this mighty car.

Want proof? How does 0-60mph in just 2.4 seconds sound? Combine that impressive jump start with a 778 horsepower electric engine and 734 pound-feet of torque and you have a formidable race car for not only this upcoming championship but for racing as a whole. If anything, it speaks to the advanced technology Tesla has at its fingertips and alludes to what we could be seeing in the not too distant future. It’s the world’s fastest accelerating production car and we, for one, are more than excited to see how this near zero emissions race car stands up to others in its class in the upcoming race series.
