Tesla Model S Plaid leaves $3.6M Bugatti Chiron behind in drag & roll race

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A Tesla Model S Plaid left a $3.6 million Bugatti Chiron behind a couple of times in a drag and roll race at the Triple F Raceway in a new video by DragTimes. The Tesla Model S Plaid with its 1,020 horsepower and the Bugatti Chiron with its 1,500 horsepower faced off on the track.

Although the Plaid is around 500 pounds lighter than the Bugatti Chiron, in these races, the all-electric vehicle proved to be the better-performing vehicle. At about four minutes into the video, the two vehicles take off with the Model S Plaid leaving the rare and expensive supercar behind.

The Chiron was slow to leave the starting line but was able to narrow the gap, however, it lost to the Plaid. The $3.6 million car actually got a better start in the second race and was able to tie with the Model S Plaid.

In the third and final race, the Tesla earned its second win with a faster launch from the line. The final two races were rolling races which helped the Bugatti some but it still lost to the Tesla.

The Tesla Model S Plaid has a listed 0-60 mph time of 1.99 seconds, however, it has proven that it can hit 60 mph in just 1.98 seconds. 

During the unveiling of the Tesla Model S Plaid in 2021, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, said that it was the faster production car that anyone could purchase. He described the engineering of the vehicle as practically alien.

“I think engineering that is practically alien,”  he said.

Elon Musk added that the Model S Plaid would be “faster than any Porsche (and) safer than any Volvo.”
