If you’re going to seriously contend with the Model S P100D, you need to be lightning quick from a roll, but most importantly, off the line.
We’ve seen what happens when cars can’t jump out at the same time as the Model S during a drag race. They almost always get obliterated, since the Tesla will put all of its power down instantly, while its opponent struggles with footing.
It’s more of the same here, as this rear-wheel drive Toyota Supra isn’t exactly the ideal choice when it comes to getting otherworldly traction off the line.
Rest assured though, as lopsided as the standing start races might have been, the rolling starts were extremely competitive, as both cars got to do what they do best.
The Turbocharged Supra is said to make about 850 WHP, while also sending 740 lb-ft (1,003 Nm) of torque to the wheels. Those are some pretty staggering numbers, especially in a car that weighs a heck of a lot less than the Model S.
Anyway, check what happens during both sets of starts, but especially towards the end once the Supra starts shifting through gears after taking off from a roll.
