Tesla vs Dodge loser goes home on a flatbed Tesla Racing Channel/Youtube

This drag race is an absolute heavyweight bout. The Tesla Model S has been breaking records left and right, but the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat has had a target on its back since its launch and has yet to be dethroned. This particular race, though, is over before it really began. Right at launch, the Dodge turns its 650 lb-ft. of torque into a snapped driveshaft. The Tesla has no such issues, using its much simpler electric motors to leave the broken Challenger behind at the start until it can be towed away in shame on a flatbed. You win this time, Tesla.
