Tesla X races 4c while towing a 4c

Thought this would be interesting (about 3:50mins into video)

It's been posted before.

It's not at all surprising. Electric motors have masses of instantaneous torque.

There are a few YouTube clips of impressive acceleration in Ludicrous mode and if you want to go drag racing it's hard to beat. As I think I said elsewhere, Alfa could release a counter clip of a Tesla lumbering hopelessly around a twisty track being lapped dozens of times by a 4C before the Tesla grinds to a halt after abusing its batteries in Ludicrous. Then taking hours to recharge.

This.

An alternative would be for Alfa to collaborate Tesla and we could have an electric 4C.

If the Tesla X handles as well as the S, it may surprise you around a track. Yes, it's heavy, but all that weight is very low down.

Wasn't the first Tesla an electric Elise?

Yep. The body was even the second choice proposal for the Elise. Alfa had to actually buy an Artega.....

Artega versus 4C ; can you spot the similarity?
I know someone who told me how it's not coincidence.
The German car failed and went electric.

He must have missed his appointment to spec savers:
Artega GT chassis:
Artega GT Cutaway - Fourtitude.com

Alfa 4C chassis:
https://www.autoedizione.com/product...-a-bit-closer/

One is aluminium, the other carbon. Can you spot which is which ?
