Check Out Tesla Model S P100D Versus Mercedes AMG S63 Top Speed Run

MAR 25 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 4

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

Once the drivers are ready to go, the view changes to simultaneously show the two cars’ instrument clusters. It’s interesting to watch what’s happening in both vehicles at the same time.

Following the guage comparo, they provide a driver’s POV perspective of each car heading down the roadway. It surely gives you a solid idea of how much initial torque the Model S cranks out, as well as just how fast 300 km/h (186 mph) feels.

Below are the car’s specs as provided by AutoTopNL:

Not sure what the point of this was? They both are governed at a certain speed, this video simply confirmed it.

Point is that by the time the Tesla was going 73km/h, it had a whopping 40km/h lead over the Merc. Yet by the time the Tesla hit its top speed, the Merc was going nearly 30km/h faster on its way to over 180MPH! In other words, at high speeds, the Mercedes murders the Tesla.

What is the range of both vehicles at top speed (if the Tesla could keep full speed for a long time)?

I bet the tank and battery will be empty pretty quick.

Well the AMG, or the just as powerful V12TT BMW 760li, could cruise easily at the top speed of a TESLA till fuel ran out. Probably 175-200 miles. It really is effortless, taking very little throttle in one of these at 150mph. The Tesla, not nearly so effortless.
