• Watch a Tesla Model Y Take On a Lamborghini Huracan Just Because

In its essence, it doesn’t seem fair to put electric motors against internal combustion engines

Even with its entry-level offerings, Tesla cars have obliterated high-end sports cars ruthlessly in the past. They offer the performance levels of a sports car and the practicality of an urban commuter. Take this video, for example. The folks at Hyperchange put the Lamborghini Huracan against a Model Y in a drag race and the results were much closer than expected.

The Model Y Is A Silent Assassinator

The Lamborghini Huracan is powered by a 5.2-liter, naturally-aspirated V-10 engine that cranks out 640 ponies and 443 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all the wheels via a seven-speed automatic gearbox. The Huracan weighs roughly around 3,050 pounds and costs anywhere between $175,000 to $350,000. This example is priced around $250,000 according to the channel.

The Tesla Model Y featured here is the Long Range trim that comes with a dual-motor setup and an all-wheel-drive configuration. It takes 4.8 seconds to 60 mph and has a top speed of 135 mph. However, it features an Acceleration Boost that reduces this time. In the Performance trim, it takes 3.5 seconds to 60 mph from a standstill and has a top speed of 155 mph. The Model Y weighs around 4,400 pounds and is priced at $48,990 for the Long Range and $60,990 for the Performance.

Does a vehicle that costs four times the price of the Model Y get the win, or does the electric crossover get the bragging rights? Watch this video and let us know your thoughts.
