Finally, a Tesla Model S P100D speed video that doesn't just focus on zero-to-60-time or the 1/4 mile, and it's in POV perspective.
This one gives a bit of a different perspective than most of the "race" videos we share. In the literal sense, it's in point-of-view, so the driver's are wearing head-mounted cameras. It also focuses less on the whole "drag strip" concept, and more on what's actually happening in the vehicles as they approach top speed.
We warn you that as they walk around and get ready to man the vehicles, you may get a bit dizzy watching. The head-mounted cameras are really cool for the portion at the end of the video, but a bit distracting during the setup.
Watch: TESLA MODEL S VS. AUDI RS 7
