Tesla's Race Car Hits 0-60 In An Insane Time
January 20th, 2017
If you thought Teslas' were already pretty fast just wait until you see the world's first Tesla RACE car! With electric car racing on the rise, it only makes sense that Tesla decided to get in on the action. Built for the Electric GT racing series, this gutted P100D does 0-60 in just 2.1 seconds!
Now the regular model P100D can already do 0-60 in 2.4 seconds but with a massive weight reduction of 1, 100 lbs. for the race version, it's no wonder this thing is notably faster. Electric GT's first season is planned to start in September of this year, with twenty drivers divided across 10 teams to compete in 7 races. The race distance is only 37 miles, which indicates electric cars still aren't where they need to be when it comes to range but that's expected to improve in the future.
