Performance Specs On Electric GT Tesla Model S P100DL, 0-62 mph in 2.1 Seconds – Video

FEB 14 2017 BY MARK KANE 15

Organizers of the Electric GT (EGT) Championship revealed details of its EGT Tesla V2.0 electric cars (which are modified P100D Model S sedans).

The racing version will be stripped by 500 kg/1,100lbs to achieve acceleration times from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in about 2.1 seconds.

Additional new vehicle elements include an aerodynamic package to increase down-force, a roll cage, fire extinguishing system, racing brakes and suspension.

EGT Tesla V2.0:

  • Tesla Model S P100D (100 kWh, 585 kW/778 bph and 995 Nm, all-wheel drive)
  • 250 km/h top speed
  • 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.1 seconds
  • 500 kg lighter

In addition to the Championship race itself, there will be e-races (game) alongside the actual event.

“Also announced was the concept of running e-races alongside the actual event. Gaming will play a crucial part in EGT’s global Racing experience, with drivers from around the world coming along to rounds where they can compete for the ultímate prize of getting behind the wheel of a race-prepared Tesla Model S.”

Electric GT CEO Mark Gemmell said:

“It was a fantastic event for us to be able to debut our car and talk to everyone interested out there. Firstly, it’s great to have Oliver Lombard and George Richardson on-board with us and we were delighted with how much support they’ve given the series.

“We felt it was a good opportunity to also exclusively reveal the performance data for the EGT V2.0 based on the P100DL, there’s some really amazing stats in there and I think quite a few people were surprised when they saw them!

“Gaming is also something we’ve been increasingly looking into, as we want the EGT Championship to not just be an event you can go and watch, but a series that anyone can get involved with. I’m very excited for the next few months.”

Yes, but what’s it’s 0-100mph time ! (Sarcasm intended)

I don’t understand about your sarcasm. A stock P100DL has a 0-100-0 of 10.2 seconds.

How are they getting 285wh/kg out of a 3.45Ah 18650?

20 cells (18650) * 3.45Ah per cell * 4.1 volts per cell = 282 wh

assuming it takes ~20 cells to weigh 1kg.

it’s more 3.75v for nominal voltage
so 22*3.45*3.75
you have 46gr by cell it give 1kg !for 284Wh

The aluminum body of those will be impossible to repair. The racing teams will probably have to buy a new one after every crash..

Perhaps the ‘High Modulus CARBON FIBER Body Panels’ listed in the video might help!

You know that there’s a long history of using aluminum in racing cars. Those guys had to deal with it with hammers. The alternative is fiber composites, which are brittle and can’t be hammered back into shape.

I take it, they don’t have these available yet, is the reason they cut to animation.

Is this track capable, or does it overheat? I recall Tesla disabled some overheat protections recently.

@ Make Kane, why not use 0-100km in the title as all measurements were in metric.
What your President Trump needs to do is to change the USA to metric now and this will take all the heat off him.

Somewhat ironically, Mark is actually our guy based out of Europe.

…go figure, (=

I’d love to see one of these compete against a V8 super car.

The GT made a name for itself in the 1960s, and the nameplate returned to Ford for the 2005 and 2006 models. Since then, the vehicle has truly evolved into a supercar, evident by it’s $100,000+ price tag.
The company has made some changes to the third-generation GT, prioritizing handling and track capabilities in their 2017 model. The result? Not only one of Ford’s most impressive cars ever, but perhaps one of the most innovative cars to ever be released.

Strange tire size listed for wet weather tires. Probably an error. If they are really 18″, they must be using different/smaller brake setup.
