Street racing is wrong and stupid. Still, we can't help but watch the latest "ludicrous" Tesla Model S P90D bring it against its merely "insane" Model S P85D sister.

Report

During a drag-race event in Florida, the Tesla Model S P85D ran the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds at 114.6 miles per hour, the new mark for BEVs at the drag strip.

In addition to twin turbos whistling away, he says the engine is a 449-cubic-inch V8, which is nearly 7.4 liters of displacement.
