Hot News !! E63 AMG vs 2013 Tesla Model S – Drag Race Revenge Video – Road Test TV

February 4th, 2013 by Road Test TV

Tesla Model S  vs E63 Drag Race By now, everyone has probably seen the video of the Tesla Model S Performance beating a Dodge Viper. You probably have also seen the video of the Tesla Model S Performance beating a Non-Performance Package Mercedes E63 to 70 mph. Well, the video below has a different outcome as the $100,000.00 Tesla Model S went head to head with a RENNtech tuned E63 BiTurbo, and finally lost a battle. However, considering that the Tesla is an all electric luxury sedan, losing to a 600 horsepower BiTurbo AMG Mercedes Benz isn’t too shabby.

The Tesla S can be ordered with with 3 different battery-pack options: 1) 40 kWh battery with a 160-mile range, 2) 60 kWh battery with a 230-mile range or 3) 85 kWh battery with a 300-mile range. The Tesla in the video has the 85 kWh option. The extended range for the Tesla is an incredible leap forward in Electric Vehicle (EV) technology as the base battery’s 160 mile range nearly doubles the highest range of any other EV on the market.

The chart topping rear wheel drive Tesla Model S with its 85 kWh battery is a very impressive performer by any standards. The $100,000.00 Model S Performance Package has an upgraded power inverter that produces 416 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Recently, a Tesla S set the EV world record in the 1/4 mile with an elapse time of 12.3 seconds and a terminal speed of 110 mph. That same Tesla Model S has catapulted from 0-to-60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

In sum, it is clear that the future of electric cars is bright and performance enthusiast will be please with the acceleration a battery powered vehicle can offer.

    Come on put a second gear in that tesla, even Dewalt drills have a second gear. If second gear kicked in about 60 mph with its torque it would kill that merc and probably get longer range on a charge. Tesla has plans in the future for a pick up truck, it better have a second gear.

    Cool, but I’d still take the Tesla any day. Imagine when Tesla makes an AWD version with a motor powering the front wheels. If the 416 hp version can do 0-60 in 3.9 sec., what would a 624 hp (front motor half size like the Model X AWD) or 832 hp Tesla Model S do? Imagine a lightened, tuned “Black Series” Tesla!

    With a second gear, or a small variable speed transmission the car would go faster with the same RPM. with the right gearing it could go 190mph, so these Mercs, and BMWs won’t catch it at the finish line. The lower RPMs would draw less electricity. What do you think Elon.

    They will have to improve the battery pack too. Because more power must come from somewhere, because current output of the battery is limited. For example, Tesla S with 45kWh battery pack has less power than one with 85kWh battery.

    Plus drive the Tesla at speeds over 65 mph, watch the car feel unsettled, get less than 100 miles on a charge and don’t even think about going more than 100mph. Look at the German power diesels that can easily and luxuriously cruise at 150mph+ for 500 miles. No thanks Tesla, or any other EV. My opinion is shared with the ex CEO of Volvo Stefan Jacoby, who believes that EVs are a temporary fad and NOT the future.

    The Tesla Model S can blow any fuel cell car out of the water any day. It can charge up using Tesla’s Superchargers that give you a full charge in less than an hour FOR FREE. After 8 years, you still have 80% of rated capacity. Hydrogen infrastructure is extremely expensive, which is why it will never exist. Your arguments are fallacious.

Clearly the people that purchase a Tesla are educated about the pros and cons of the vehicle. There is no range issue, there is no performance issue, there is no safety issue, there is no warranty issue. The Model S is a phenomenal car, earning repeated 2013 COTY awards!

Excessive quantity (170,000) doesn’t translate to efficiency. We won’t need that many Super Charger stations for quite some time. Elon Musk is attempting to change the way we have done personal transportation for the last 100 years,. Read up on the guy and you might learn something.

    It doesn’t really matter how many gas stations there are, if they in some 10 or 20 years won’t be able to deliver gas cheap enough. The Model S is a preview of things to come. The only way to create a self-sustainable transport network in the future, is by using electric cars, trains and buses.

    Driving electric means having the freedom to avoid the “smelly gas hand” syndrome, not having to wait while the smelly stuff is pumped into the car, and not having to pay money for it as well. -plus, plus, plus!
    Freedom to not send your neighbors kid, or your own kid, off to fight a war to get electricity to come out of the wall, is icing on the cake.

    Just take a few seconds at the end of the day to plug-in, and always leave fully charged in the morning.

Think how electricity demand will influence and stress infrastructure. Electric companies such as EON have already talked about raising the price for electricity and we are only at about 17,000 EVs in the world. There are 87 million cars in the world.

    Look at Elon Musks trackrecord, not something you wanna bet against. The truth is that the buyers that need something the Model S can’t provide today are getting so few that they are soon irrelevant. Give it 10 years and ICE cars will look like old relics in comparison.

    One thing is certain, whatever the future holds, it will NOT be ICE cars. It will be all EV for the next 50-100 years, then hydrogen fuel cell will be ready.

    Yeah the range is a HUGE problem, not.

Since you brought it up, I will point out that gassers loose efficiency, become slower, even more wasteful and dirtier every year you drive one. All those mechanical parts start to wear out. Electric motors like in my car have one moving part! and they get cleaner automatically every year, because we are cleaning up the grid. More wind, more solar means no war for electric.

First of all in america there is NOWHERE where you can drive above 100mph without it being a felony and it gets 265 miles on a charge realistically not “under 100”. No car can drive for 500 miles. PERIOD. and plus what do those cars get mpg wise hm? You would be paying tens of thousands of dollars a year to keep it running. And what makes you think EVs are a fad.

    There have been many industrial and technological advancements since MBs induction that the Tesla and E63 are both taking advantage of. but get your point. To go fast (not quick but fast) it takes one thing, POWER and the Tesla does not have a lot of it. To go quick it takes many other factors (traction, gearing, etc.) it’ll be a while before a Tesla will be able to run down a modded AMG benz. I’d still rather have the Tesla it’s the future, the benz is just a car with a big engine and big power

The roadster definitely had better acceleration with the two speed transmission, probably range too.

    Electric cars have been around for over a century as well. What kept them back until quite recently was a lack in affordable battery technology. ICE filled the role of powering cars for a very long time because it was the best option. In the next few years many car manufacturers including Mercedes will be making pure electrics and considering the capital the major manufacturers have tesla will most likely either merge, be purchased, or go out of business.

For those who purchased a Model S in 2012 have the option of bringing their car into the service center to have a badge added to their car. Also, the REALLY fast Tesla Model S cars are the one with the badge that says “P85+” They have the Performance Plus package for better traction, suspension and more rigid frame.

    A transmission will do nothing for the Tesla electric motor. The Torque curve is so flat, that shifting will only make it so the motor will spin slower, while giving the same amount of HP/Torque, and using the same amount of power from the battery. What it WILL do, is add a lot more points for mechanical failure, reduce the response time of your throttle, and rob you of a couple HP. Electric motors can spin at tens of thousands of RPM without a hiccup. There is no need for a transmission.

    Have you tried BMW diesel engines? They are usually relatively comfortable in the high revs. I drove a E46 pre facelift for years and reved it to 4000rpm all the time. It didn’t mind at all.
    The E46 facelift on the other hand was more of a low down torque engine. It would still rev to 4000rpm without loosing power and was faster due to the extra torque.

I like 7k+ revs and atmospheric engines that can go from 40kph to 200+ in top gear if I choose to, but have to use the gears to do it fast. This electric engine takes it a step further. Always on power, smooth or fast, is just a question of pressure from the right foot. No gears. No jerking. No violence. No sound (almost). Can’t wait to get my hands on one 🙂

    Nice attempt at a troll, but you didn’t read what I said. I never said gears do not multiply torque.

    When you have the exact same torque at 0 RPM as you do at 15000 RPM and every speed in between, then adding a transmission will only steal power from your output.

    ICE cars need a transmission because of their narrow powerband, and rev limit.

    If you had tried to make the argument that he should re-gear the motor, I could agree, but a transmission that can shift would only make the car slower.

    While it is true that reduction gearing does in fact multiply torque, you’re forgetting the internal drag that adding more components creates. By using solely and electric motor that produces its peak torque over the full power band 0-15000 rpms it negates the need for reduction gearing. Any improvements in torque would be lost in power due to drag and friction. Basically like why automatic’s generally have lower power, more unnecessary components.

    You sound like a dumb ass trying to make an intelligent statement, but horsepower is ALWAYS going to be dependent on rpm. It is a measurement of foot-pounds of pressure that can be exerted in a given amount of time, or… a unit of power equal to 550 foot-pounds per second equals one horsepower.

    Google the efficiency of a manual transmission then! Do you really think such a small loss in efficiency, and one shift of the gears, could not be overcome by a large increase in torque and maybe some hot tires? I didn’t see the Tesla spinning it’s tires… Besides, the Tesla already has a gear reduction of 9.73.

It was not intended to be a drag racer. A faster car is not necessarily the “better” car. The Mercedes is also burning fossil fuel and probably puts out 3-6 times as much C02 emissions as the Tesla even if charged from electricity produced by coal. If Tesla wanted, they could build a faster car but why? Maybe the next Roadster.

You can compare it which the demise of the old big TVs when flatscreens came out: First the flatscreens where inferior to the old TVs and only few people bought one.

    I think Musk said that he expects gradual evolution of the existing battery chemistry, not something new. And you don’t really need such a revolution for electric cars to compete in the mainstream. The lithium–air battery you mentioned is an old technology that still hasn’t produced a practical product. It’s quite likely that it’s not going to be a major player in the next 40 years either.

    Tesla didn’t get here by acquiring revolutionary batteries. They just used existing tech in a clever way.

    Elon Musk has stated that even improving on existing technologies such as the very Li Ion cells his cars use will make a stronger case for electric cars. Just an improvement of say 30% to 40% more energy density would enable a car like the Model S to surpass 400 miles of driving range on a single charge. That would be significant.

    So, gas cost more than electricity and you have to rely on big oil. Easy solution, just put a bigger motor in to the Tesla and it will smoke the Mercedes. Anyway you look at it combustion engines are incredibly inefficient and from the motor to the wheel the loss of power high, not to mention many things break down and you have to spend money changing the fluids in the car. Why do you think High Speed Trains use electric motors instead of gasoline or diesel. Stop living in the past.

You just have to rev the engine to that RPM then release the brake or clutch when you drag race.. All your torque will be there before you go. GET IT?

    ICE owners overlook a significant detail. The Tesla can literally drag all day with little or no wear on its drive train. How many times can you mash the throttle and drop the clutch on that Benz before it heads to the shop? The achilles heel for ICE’s is the enormous cost it takes to build & maintain an engine capable of keeping up with a performance electric. Battery tech gets better every year. Teslas will get cheaper and faster while cars with high performance ICE’s get way too expensive.

    ICE technology has had over 120 years of improvements. Its a mature technology and unlikely to get much better. Modern electrics are just getting started. They’ve only been showing up at the track for the last decade and are already pushing 10 seconds. Highly customized versions are pushing 8 seconds and doing it at only a fraction of the costs associated with racing an ICE. This will only get worse for ICE’s.

    I never said that intercontinental airplanes, ships, trains or freight trucks should go electric. In fact, I think it’s important we avoid using fossil fuels whenever possible to preserve it to where it’s the optimum way. Some day we will understand how stupid we were when aircrafts can’t fly anymore because of your kind of attitude. A B747-300 fully loaded consumes some 3,000 gallons of fuel per hour. You can make 60 gallons of biodiesel per acre of soybeans, for example.

    That is incorrect. CO2 emissions for EV cars depends on how the electricity is produced. EV cars on average clearly reduces the accumulated CO2 emission. An ICE 30mpg car emit around 29 tons of CO2 over 100,000 miles from the gas burned. Depending on location, the EV car leads to different CO2 emissions. State CO2 emissions per kWh vary greatly in accordance with the amount of clean energy in the energy supply e.g. Vermont is at 0.0055 lbs/kWh while North Dakota: 2.0685 lbs/kWh.

Add on to the car the drag from the intakes and the weight of the trans, engines, gears, etc you get a much less energy efficient car. You are also wrong about the batteries. Mining lithium is low impact and all LI bats can be broken down and reused time and time again.

    When it comes to drag times, dollar for dollar, the Tesla Model S kicks every car’s ass! Even if it is driven by a douche-nozzle of a driver. And according to the NHTSA the Tesla Model S is THE safest car you can buy. The Tesla Model S creates a whole new paradigm for future car design. It is to cars what the iPhone was to cell phones. And it’s made in America. At least we Americans have SOMETHING we can be proud of! Finally.

    Only time will tell if the Tesla is successful. Sounds great on paper. Where it will fail miserably its in resale value. Basically this is a 10 year shelf life car (the life span of their best battery). After that, the car is basically useless unless you are willing to pay another 12000-15000 for a battery swap. Yes you saved yourself gas money on the front end but will pay for it on the back end. Maintenance cost will be high due to specialized mechanics. Maybe in 50 years when cost are lower.

There will be no gas for cars, trucks, boats, airplanes in about 80 years(probably less as China increases its fuel consumption). Electric transportation will be the necessary future like it or not. Cars electric. Trains electric. Trucks electric. Ships coal or nuclear. Airplanes, grounded.

    Depending on the driver, the Tesla S will beat a BMW M5, 0-100 mph in 2 tests in 3. So yes, a prospective M5 owner will definitely be considering the Tesla S… especially as its “fuel economy” equivalent is better than 100 mpg… the BMW M5 would struggle to get 20mpg. I would love to have either of these cars… but the Tesla has the edge.

So they’ve had plenty of time to make them the great cars that they are. But Tesla has been in biz for about a decade. And the Model S is only they’re second offering. And it’s been receiving some of the highest accolades that a car can get. Tesla is to the auto world what Apple was to the cellular and music industries.

This will change over time as Tesla Supercharger stations pop up, but right now most of the nation would be limited to charging at home, work, or anywhere else where you can get away with stealing electricity.

    So a car with one forward gear built for US roads needs to continue accelerating hard over 110mph why? Even if it was cruising the Autobahn in Germany… most cars are doing 70-75 or so. If you are doing 100-110 you are blowing past 99% of the rest of traffic and probably causing a hazard, btdt at over 200mph when I was young and dumb and got my hands on a Ruf Ladybird Porsche for a test drive back in the mid 80’s.

    Probably just a fanboy and with good reason. With the motor driving the rear axles directly, the odds are you could drag race that for year after year pulling mid 12’s and never break anything. While I was burning up $50-$100 in fuel for an average drag race day, the Tesla owner is probably well under $3. At the end of the run, he isn’t working the brakes either… just let the regen slow you down and put some juice back in the battery pack.. no wear or tear.

    I’m well aware of that. But at least what he’s doing with Tesla and Space X AND Solar City are ALL based here in the states. So while he may be South African, he obviously feels that the U.S. is the place to do his business. And with as much as he’s contributed to the American economy and workforce, I’d say that makes him worthy of an “honorary” American citizenship, If there were such a thing. But that’s just my opinion.

    Absolutely. One would certainly expect the Tesla to get better gas mileage. However, the video is of a drag race. I am not certain gas mileage is a major concern. If it were, those drag car racers that operate on 114 octane race fuel are probably upset that they are spending $300 on your 60 mile benchmark.

    So an aftermarket tuned AMG that gets 16mpg can outrun the Tesla Model S in
    the 1/4 by a second… cool. The Tesla gets about 100mpge and has about a
    300 mile range. The AMG has a 21 gallon gas tank (and uses super?) which
    will get it about 40 miles further than the Tesla… assuming it isn’t
    caught in traffic jams in which case, the Tesla will probably go further on
    a ‘tank’. Fuel per tank… Tesla “Free” on the highway if it fills up at a
    Tesla Supercharger station, otherwise about $6 where I live (6.5 cents a
    KW). AMG Mercedes… 21 x $3.79 (price I just filled my Regal GS up at,
    was $4.29 a couple of months ago)… so about $80. If you are a high buck
    suit driving up and down the freeways, you might get 485 miles to a tank…
    good range on a freeway. Of course no one needs that amount of power, but
    yes, it spanks the Tesla in the 1/4 mile with it’s extra 200+ horsepower on
    tap when called upon. I’ve driven over 200mph on the Autobahn in Germany
    between Ramstein and Saarbruchen in an old Ruf Porsche… not a car I’d
    want to drive everyday. I think I’d want to drive the Tesla everyday and
    take the long winding way home.
