Even the most devoted fans of acceleration may ultimately become weary
races that yield the same results, despite the fact that dragstrip competitions against
Tesla Model S Plaid are a YouTube mainstay. However, a recent endeavor from
Cammisa and the Hagerty YouTube channel upends the existing quo in the speed world.
The Tesla Model S Plaid, a Lucid Air Sapphire, and a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport are all shown in the film.
Elon Musk may want to be concerned about the new Lucid Air Sapphire
, even if Tesla was the fastest production vehicle in terms of acceleration.
The two EVs seem closely matched in performance specs, with the Model S Plaid offering
torque against the Air Sapphire’s 1,200-plus ponies (torque specs weren’t available).
Meanwhile, the Chiron Pur Sport appears ready for all comers with 1,479 horsepower
lb-ft of torque from an 8.0-liter W16 engine. But there’s more to consider than just numbers.
Camissa explains that traction and torque make the difference with initial acceleration.
