" We all understand acceleration. It’s the rate of change of velocity. This 4,891-pound Tesla Model S P100D does it best, reaching 30, 40, 50, and 60 mph from a standstill more quickly than any other production vehicle we’ve ever tested, full stop. In our testing, no production car has ever cracked 2.3 seconds from 0 to 60 mph. But Tesla has, in 2.275507139 seconds.

The Tesla does not hold the advantage forever, though, because higher speeds give the advantage to horsepower over instant torque. The Ferrari LaFerrari hits 70 mph a tenth of a second quicker; the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1 pull ahead at 80 mph, and these hypercars all continue to pull away at higher speeds. But around town, everybody has long since lifted off the accelerator pedal. "

This thing is incredible. Simply incredible

This thingamajigger kills the street cred of many supercars and hypercars. 

 

I mean, I love the Dodge Demon, but like, this car weighs a fair bit more, has 5 seats, and two storage compartments. And AWD. Also, EQUAL reliability to FCA. (Get what I mean by the last part? I am savage with that one :) )

 

If your mission is to destory the stoplight before the other driver can even react, this is the car to get.
