If you’ve ever spent the afternoon wondering which would win in a drag race between the 691-hp Tesla Model S P85D and the 691-hp Lamborghini Aventador, you’ve got too much time on your hands—but you’re also just like us.

What appears to be an easy walk for the Tesla quickly turns around as the Aventador brings its full V-12 arsenal to bear. The remainder is a lesson in motion about the meanings of torque, horsepower, and gear multiplication.
It’s an impressive showing for both cars, really, and one well worth a re-watch once you’ve absorbed the initial shakeout.
