Tesla vs Viper Driving Experience
The turning point in motor history is here and the vision is electrifying. An ongoing power-plant debate that begs to be investigated first hand in the battle for admiration and innovation – petrol vs electric.
Can a BEV really be faster than the very latest American-made supercar to roll off the Detroit assembly line? It’s old muscle vs new muscle.
Fighting for fuel supremacy, a car which is revered as one of the most powerful in existence. The latest (and supposed last) generation Dodge Viper has an 8.4L V10 combustion engine that spits flames out of its dual side exit exhausts and can reach 206mph.
The electric contender steps into the ring, the Tesla Model S P90D. It comes equipped as a comfortable family saloon car, yet it has a button: Engage Ludicrous+mode. Press this and the car preheats the battery pack for optimal power which gives you 762bhp powered through dual electric motors providing traction across all 4 wheels delivering instant peak power – a huge advantage for unexpected drag runs.
It’s not all about straight line speed – cornering capability is also vital on the racetrack – so let’s put the Viper and the Tesla, two opposing pinnacles of motoring, head to head for a shakedown on track.
