Video: Tesla Model S Gets Its Drift On

“What’s up guys & welcome to episode 5 of GT6 Let’s Drift. This time I drift a very unexpected car, the all electric but very cool Tesla Model S at Fuji & Laguna Seca.”

Some Sideways Action

Some Sideways Action

Video gamers and Model S fans will appreciate the inclusion of Tesla’s electric sedan in what’s perhaps the greatest racing series of all time for the Playstation system.

Maybe drifting isn’t the Model S’ finest attribute, but as we know, GT6 prides itself on accuracy, so we suspect that Model S owners will find the vehicle capable of some crazy tail-out action, provided that the traction control is disabled and you’re okay with burning through $1,000-plus in rubber.

On second thought, why not just pick up a copy of GT6 and test it out in the virtual world.  It’s way cheaper and certainly safer.

I have that game, and the Model S is certainly difficult to drive. The throttle is very sensitive. The only car I actually use traction control for. Accelerate on a turn with the grippiest tyres and you’re gone! Gone as in referred to spinning out. Does get annoying in proper races.

The physics are so wacky. My Model S Performance doesn’t have hardy any body roll and this one in the game is wobbling all around. The physics engine in the game must have the CG in the car two feet too high.
Also why so slippery in the corners? Track covered in Vaseline?

I think I recognize the guy doing the review.

Your Tesla is hungry …. FEED IT!

This is one of the reason why Tesla needs an AWD ASAP.

Mercedes SLS Electric Drive would be cool on GT.

Forza 5 is better ;P
