Watch Tesla Model S Beat Supercars In World's Greatest Drag Race

• http://insideevs.com, by Jeff Perez

 Even with all that horsepower on display, though, the winner might actually surprise you.

Among the supercars and sports cars in competition are the 471-horsepower Lexus LC500, the 600-hp Aston Martin DB11, the 577-hp Mercedes-AMG GT R, the 562-hp McLaren 570GT, the 662-hp Ferrari 488 GTB, the 580-hp Porsche 911 Turbo S, the 600-hp Nissan GT-R Nismo, and the 350-hp Porsche 718 Cayman S. But there are a few outliers to take note of.

The 650-hp Camaro ZL1 1LE and 460-hp Corvette Grand Sport bring some much-needed muscle to the mix, while the lowly (but still lovely) Mazda Miata RF is replaced by one of two sedans; the Tesla Model S P100D with 680-hp, and the Alfa Romeo Guilia Quadrifoglio with 505-hp are the only two four-door models in the grid. But don't discount them just yet.

Off the line the Model S and the Porsche 911 Turbo are the quickest, followed near behind by the 488 GTB and the 570GT, surprisingly. The ZL1 and the LC500 get a slow start, but at least of them makes up for it in the quarter-mile sprint.
