Is Tesla Model 3 Now Faster Than Challenger Hellcat? Drag Race Video


We love drag race videos, and we know you do as well. We also take some guilty pleasure in watching the instant-on torque of an electric motor cleaning the competition's exhaust pipes. Don't worry, we didn't just spoil the outcome in this Tesla-versus-the-world video from The Fast Lane Car on YouTube. The action is actually pretty darned close, for the most part anyway.

In this case, world means exactly two vehicles. The first is a 2019 Mercedes-AMG CLS 53, packing a boosted 3.0-liter inline six good for 429 horsepower (320 kilowatts) and a published 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds. The second vehicle is a bit more intimidating, which can only mean a freaking Dodge Challenger Hellcat with its supercharged V8 ready to clobber everything. It's a long-term tester with TFLC so it only has 707 hp (527 kW) under the hood, but traction willing it's enough to shoot the devil child to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
