My Aussie friend Dave is a real muscle car fanatic who doesn’t take kindly of some electric car claiming to be the fastest sedan on the planet. To prove Elon Musk wrong, he went for a drag race between a Tesla and a V8 Supercar.

You all know the Tesla Model S P85D. Two electric motors give it all-wheel drive and a combined output of 762 horsepower. It’s ludicrously fast. But a fire-breathing Australian V8 Supercar is on a whole other level. It’s got wings, it’s got pistons, it’s got stickers.

Without much further ado:

Holden will be dearly missed after 2017.
