This time around we see an R8 V10 Plus twin turbo that produces 1,700HP up against a brand new Tesla Model S Plaid which is currently the quickest Tesla on the market battling it out in a drag race best out of three that is set up by the guys over at Hoonigan.

The 2018 Audi R8 V10 Plus smacks out 1,700 horsepower, has a DCT transmission, weighs in at 3,700 LBS, features a twin turbo 5.2 litre V10 engine and has an all wheel drive system

The Tesla on the other hand makes 1020 HP, has a 1-speed automatic gearbox, weighs in at a far heavier 4828 LBS largely thanks to its electric motor and batteries and to has an all wheel drive system.

According to the specs, the R8 will clearly take the win, but the Tesla, although heavier and less powerful also has the advantage of having instant torque at its disposal and only 1 gear in its transmission.
