A recent video shows an R35 Nissan GT-R outsing a Tesla Model S Plaid in a drag race. It was a very interesting moment showing on stage a snoring and powerful vehicle of the Japanese automaker and a quiet and equally powerful electric from the American automaker.
The recent Model S Plaid, as we know, offers incredible acceleration while remaining compliant with road standards. The most powerful version of Tesla’s top-of-the-line model can reach a speed of 320 km/h and is capable of reaching 100 km/h in 1.99 seconds. In addition, in Elon Musk’s own words,the machine “covers a quarter of a mile (402 meters) in just 9.23 seconds at a speed of 248 km/h.”
Well, it is worth remembering that the performance mentioned here is not very cheap, since it is achieved with a vehicle that costs almost $ 130,000 in the United States. Here in Brazil, the Model S Plaid is found for more than R $ 1 million, to get an idea. More precisely, for “humble” R$ 1,189,000.
The R35 Nissan GT-R race, according to the Post on YouTube, received mods that increased its production to more than 1,200 hp. The already fast vehicle then, combined with a new well-calculated revenue of parts, ended up surpassing the machine of elon musk’s automaker. Check:
Race in which only a loud snore
It is possible to notice that the car of the Japanese automaker reaches the starting line already nervous, almost looking like a brave bull. In the Drag Racing and Car Stuff video, posted on the penultimate day of 2021, the pike performed was exactly a quarter of a mile away, including.
Tesla’s electric car, reportedly in the video, has received no addition or configuration changes. The distance between the cars at the end of the race also didn’t seem absurd at all, with the silent Model S Plaid doing nothing ugly. Anyway, what a beautiful performance the victorious and snoring Nissan.
