We live in interesting times, as in the old chainsaw, and that has never been so true as in the world of automobiles being made today, where the howling and roar of liquid-fueled engines begin to recede as far away as frighteningly quiet electric cars tear down competitors. Gas-operated in tow strips. We all know Tesla cars are fast, but are there any street gas powered cars that could be the best electric car for penultimate production, S Plaid 1020 HP? There is still – kind of.
Ken Block and his friends (and family) in the car and Hoonigan driving specialists She decided to take her popularity This is for that Youtube series and make a slight name change to This vs Plaidthen mount the staid electric car against comparison with a host of exotic and custom gases, including the Audi R8’s 1,700-horsepower V-10, the ferocious Lamborghini Aventador SVJ’s V-12 and, finally, the insane 1,400-horsepower block-borderline. Double horse monster four-wheel drive Mustang with a turbocharged V8, Known as Hoonicorn V2. here is a block make her dance at Gymkhana فيديو Video Series.
The races were largely informal, with no timing lights or officials. It basically comes down to: Can you beat the Tesla Plaid? Two different types of plaids were used, one from the owner Adam Jorgensenwho modified the EV by tinting windows and… that’s all.
A surprising twist: In the first video (below), famed wheelchairman Ken Block gives up his Hoonicorn driver’s seat in front of a budding rally car racer he’s supporting: his 15-year-old daughter Leah. Having grown up around Ken and the Hoonigan crew, she is of course no stranger to fast cars and tire smoke. But does it have what it takes to turn all the fire-breathing P5 Mustang’s internal combustion power and fuel it into the Hoonicorn all-wheel drive system, which features proprietary wheels, sticky tires and the noise of a thousand more Honda Civics all in the red line? It is indeed, taking the first race by a comfortable margin, while the Plaid, with a two-car length starting buffer, only takes the second race. Hoonicorn beats Tesla in the third race, a 500-foot race. Here is the video:
Let’s be clear, this really isn’t a fair fight. Gonzo’s Fully Custom Mustang Produces 400 HP More Than Tesla Plaid’s 1020 HP, And The EV’s Big Battery Makes It Huge 1766 pounds heavier From Ford that was stripped with two turbines as bonnet decorations. Both cars have All Wheel Drive systems, and the Tesla likely has a little traction advantage in part because of all that low battery weight and technology, and it doesn’t have to change gears…because it only has one. Meanwhile, Lia had to precisely adjust her spells to achieve maximum speed. Despite the Hoonicorn’s big advantages, the finishes were pretty close, and it’s not really the face of a production car; Hoonicorn is one of those highly modified specialized cars that you probably can’t get license plates for. But anyway.
And as if 1,400 horsepower wasn’t enough, the series really started last year when Team Hoonigan recruited Jorgenson and new Plaid to take on a McLaren 720S. This time around, the numbers for each car squared up a bit more evenly, with a carbon-fiber McLaren “only” packing 1,000 horsepower into a slightly heavier 3,100-pound chassis, but a steady 1,600 pounds on the Tesla. McLaren is also rear-wheel drive rather than all-wheel drive, and is equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Owner and driver Anthony Boye says he pumped out the 720S with an aftermarket exhaust, a higher tuned case, carbon-fiber wheels, a body kit and a few other modifications, plus some C88 hi-test go juice. The Tesla is largely stock and seats five. Snugly. Everyone is betting on McLaren to sweep it. calendar? There’s no competition because Tesla leaves McLaren lagging as frequently as the Jio Sizzle, winning every race, including the Handicap competition, where four members of the Hoonigan crew jump into a Tesla as “counterweight” and the only McLaren driver gets a car-length lead. Did not matter.
It’s a little more level playing field, seeing as how the 2018 McLaren is a street-legal production car, mods and everything. Tesla wins by the nose in the last race for the handicapped, but given how likely it is to finish on him Heavier than McLaren at that point makes the win even more meaningful.
Then, in a video posted on February 7, 2022, it’s slashed against a built Audi R8. Jonathan Barzivand puts his stock Tesla Blade bone on the line, while Hank Irraws of Aeros Motorsport tuner shop They drive an Audi, which packs a slick but massively compact twin-turbo V10 that can put out a disaster 1700 hp Through a four-wheel drive system that rotates half of the spots. It’s no surprise that Audi takes the checkers in an even race start from a standstill, but the Plaid isn’t too far even though it does give up more than 1,100 pounds and a good chunk of the power to Audi. However, Aeros says he can’t bring the small 1,700 horsepower to carry on the short track and runs the car “only” with 1,400 horsepower. Combined with the Audi all-wheel drive system, it’s still enough to make the best blades in every race.
Lamborghini makes some fairly fast supercars as we all know, and in a video posted on Valentine’s Day this year, Plaid returns to take on the 780-horsepower Aventador SVJ from Strange driven daily. The Plaid gives 1,200 pounds to the high-spec SVJ, but the big 6.5-liter V12 for 2019 is 240 horsepower less than Plaid’s 1020hp. Damon Fryer drives the SVJ efficiently, getting the hottest start in both standing races, but Plaid, led by Jonathan Barzivan, strays away from it in both heats, even as the Lamborghini is two cars ahead in the second heat. In a rolling race from 70 mph to the 1,000-foot mark, Plaid once again takes up checkers quite easily. However, the races are worth watching just to hear the howl of the SVJ’s V12 engine crossing 9000 rpm. Sweet music for fans of petrol engines to be sure.
And in this video, the Hoonigan crew really explained their feelings about the Tesla Plaid, calling it “boring,” perhaps an apt description of a car that makes a little noise, carries five adults in comfort and could shy away from an exoitc Lamborghini simply by pushing the throttle on. ground. But winning is winning.
Hoonigan teams lament the future of racing, but as these videos demonstrate, Wide The majority of production specs (or even modified and tuned) will drop to the Plaid’s 9.2-second quarter-mile time, massive torque and push-button, and the skill-requiring low bar for wannabe drag racing. Boring? Probably. Fast? Certainly, keep in mind that we are in the very early days of developing electric cars from Which manufacturer, and big strides will be made in no time when it comes to electric propulsion.
It’s made abundantly clear in this latest video, where the Tesla Plaid is repeatedly slapped on the towbar by what will be its real opponent going forward: another electric car. It has nothing to do with the Hoonigan crew, the team ended up in drag times I managed to put together what might be the biggest showdown yet between the cars of the future. We know Tesla Plaid, but Rimac Nevera, a $2.4 million, 1,914-horsepower handmade all-electric supercar from Croatia, is a different animal again than the Plaid. While a three-engine Tesla can quietly burn a quarter mile in one mark in nine seconds, the Nevera with a motor every wheel, he can cross the line in 8.5 seconds – a big difference. And in every race shown in the video, he hums Plaid, which is incredible to see when you understand the gigantic electric forces at work. Watching this video, the phrase that still comes to my mind is: Here’s another sneak peek into the future of cars, including exotics.
I spoke with Rimac founder and CEO Mate Rimac in 2021 about a electric bike line They were planning, but the conversation always came back to the cars he was making — and planning. In the unpublished interview, he hinted that big things were coming for the bespoke, future-focused exotic electric car maker that he basically started in his garage in 2009 at the age of 19. He has done quite well in a relatively short time. In 2021, Rimac Buy a Bugatti exotic speed machine code from Volkswagen. Bugatti was the first car manufacturer to legally produce a gas powered car to go 300mph, at which point they basically said “We’ve proven our point” and they wouldn’t try to beat the record, which was soon outdone by a Hennessey Venom F5 at 311 mph and then the insane Shelby SSC Tuatara reaching 331 mph at $2 million.
Bugatti’s standard run was before Rimac, so never say no to the brand that picked up the Tuatara. Currently, the Nevera’s top speed is around 260 mph. To be fair, the Rimac Nevera that raced here is pre-production (but obviously very close to production) and when it rolls off the line it can be a bit faster than this unit as the engine’s software and controls are modified. Combine Rimac EV technology with Bugatti’s high-speed craftsmanship and we think some limited-edition Rimac/Bugatti cars could hit 300 mph (482 kph) in the near future. CEO Mate has something going fast.
Yes, Nevera (Rimac makes only 150 units) with its limited multimillion dollar management is out of reach for most humans, while a good day/week/year in the stock market can trap a savvy investor $130,000 Tesla Blades, produced by Tesla as fast as it could, no doubt. But the underlying theme from these videos is clear: As boring as they may be, electric cars can beat daylight from most production gases across any performance metric, regardless of price. Electric cars The only real competition that will continue to move forward, in terms of performance, is other electric cars. They will only get faster as the model years progress.
