The rear-drive Tesla Model S P85 weighs around 4,600 pounds. That’s a lot of metal and battery to sling around, but Super GT and D1 Grand Prix driver Nobuteru Taniguchi decided to give it a go.

It’s not exactly what you’d call “graceful”, but the thing does slide thanks to the instant-on application of 443 lb-ft of torque.
