So why is this race different? Well, for starters, the Model S Performance introduced in this CarWow drag race is an updated version, which means it is much more powerful than before. Second, the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster belonged to Yiannimize, which we all know has a personal scrum against Teslas in previous drag races.
In fact, we saw it last year: a Tesla Model S Performance versus an Aventador S coupe, also owned by Yiannimize. It was a redemption race for the Lambo, but can it still win against the improved Model S this time? Let’s look at the numbers first.
The Tesla Model S Performance here is powered by two electric motors that produce a total power of 838 horsepower (616 kilowatts) and a huge instantaneous torque of 959 lb-ft (1,300 Newton meters).
On the other hand, the Aventador S, with its 6.5-liter V12, produces 740 hp (544 kW) and 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque.
While the Performance of the Model S seems so powerful on paper than the Lambo, it is important to note that the Tesla is much heavier at 4941 pounds (2241 kilograms). Note that the Bull weighs only 3,583 lbs (1,625 kg).
