The new Model S P100D can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. It includes a 100kWh battery that can sustain the sedan for about 300-350 miles. Before tax incentives the P100D costs $134,500, which is a remarkable value for the performance.
The Lamborghini Huracan is priced from $241,945 in the U.S., which is about $100 grand more than the Tesla, but significantly more affordable than the Aventador, which retails from $404,195 before options. The Huracan can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds.
It looks like the Tesla gets the jump on the Lambo usually, but the Huracan eventually overtakes the electric sedan in pretty much every trial they have in the video. Seems pretty predictable, as the Tesla has the benefit of 100% torque from the standstill, but the power of the Huracan’s 5.2-Liter V-10 eventually overtakes the sedan. If money wasn’t a thing to me, I’d buy the Tesla for my daily driver, and the Lamborghini to fulfill my midlife crisis fantasies.
