The McLaren 720S may be becoming the new darling of the YouTube drag race world, but there’s still plenty of straight-line fun to be had with the former ‘king’: the Tesla Model S P100D. As a perfect case in point, here’s Tesla’s most potent Model S taking on the new Honda/Acura NSX.

As a result, it’s brutally quick off the line, and even though its total power figure of 573bhp falls well short of the P100D’s, the car is a lot lighter.
