Lamborghini Huracan Shows Tesla Model S Why EVs Fall Short

We aren’t talking about exhaust notes either.

Elon Musk has gone ahead and proved it to the world; electric cars have what it takes to outperform plenty of supercars. With the Tesla Model S P85D, all four wheels are fed with 691 horsepower and a full time application of 687 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile an established supercar like the Lamborghini Huracan has to make do with “only” 602 ponies snaking the driveline to all four paws. Despite the power difference, another Lambo vs Tesla race shows us the one area that the EV falls short in: top speed.

After a variety of launches, some good and others bad, the Huracan manages to walk away from the Tesla each time as soon as its engine is screaming at full tilt.
