    Interesting past versus future matchup here. The Tesla P85 Model S as you well know is completely electric. It is the highest performance car in the Tesla lineup until the new all wheel drive P85D Model S hits the streets with its 691 horsepower. As you are about to see though, the rear wheel drive P85 Model S with its 470 horsepower is no slouch. While the Tesla may be the pinnacle of commercial electric automotive drivetrain technology the G-Wagon is a very different proposition. It is big, heavy, and it definitely releases a bit of exhaust gas into the air when the 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 is called on to move its 5800 pound mass. The G-Wagon has a modern twin turbo V8 from Mercedes-AMG under the hood but the basic design of the G is now over three decades old. These are two very different vehicles and that is what makes this run so much fun to see. The Tesla wins the drag race although based on the trap speed it sure seems like it lets off a little bit. 98 miles per hour? We have seen much faster results than that from it on the dragstrip. Regarding the G63 13.19 @ 106.87 pass that is about what one should expect from the stock M157 powered G63. The elapsed time being quicker for the 1400 pound lighter Tesla that gets instant torque from the electric motor should not shock anyone. Throw a tune on the G63 and the outcome changes. You could also up the voltage to the motor in the Tesla. Cars like the Model S are the future. Thankfully you can curb greenhouse gas emissions and still go fast at the same time.
