    Nice video! I'm impressed how the Model S really holds its own in this situation. It really illustrates just how amazing a car it is. Here you have a $200K supercar that is even in its zone by starting at 20 MPH or more and the Model S gives it a run for the money. Most impressive.

    It reminds me of the quote from Macbeth: Lamborghini - full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

    well, the Tesla does cost more than the 2006 Lambo, if you did buy a newer Lambo, the Tesla has no chance... but still fun to watch...

    To be fair, it sounds like the lambo could have started the race in first.

    It's a deafening signal that fossil fuels are being burned at an alarming rate.

    Also known as testosterone. Girls still love it. (For better or worse).

    Now the trend has changed. Girls love electric cars. Don't you know the Tesla nod? :cool:

    Not the girls I'd be interested in. The ones fixed on testosterone symbols usually have seriously screwed up values. They're another remnant of a time we no longer want or need.
