What happens when you do a head-to-head comparison of the Mercedes-AMG Project One and the upcoming, all-new Tesla Roadster?

Well, we don't know a ton about the second-gen Roadster yet, however, we have most of the information we need. It can pull off a zero-to-60-mph sprint in 1.9 seconds (standard trim, no performance upgrades or packages). It will hit 100 mph in 4.2 seconds and can top out at over 250 mph.
