Tesla Model S P85D Insane Mode meets Mercedes SLS AMG - YouTube
Very nice. I'm glad those kids seats have shoulder straps.
Ha! Although, man, that SLS's bark sounds AMAZING....
I like the sound of the kids laughter slowly fading away.
It's the sound of it poisoning you and the rest of us. Something we should really be enthralled about
Ok, that made me smile. Thanks for sharing!
Supercars are the exception :smile:
Back in an old thread about ideas for commercials, I proposed something very similar to this, with the kids in the back waving and smiling as the Tesla pulled away from a hot-shot ricer driver.
While cute, I'd rather a real SLA AMG matchup rather than something staged...
And while I'm sure (or at least hope) it was cut together from clips where the children weren't really in the back seat and on a safer road, I'm not terribly fond of depicting somebody accelerating towards 90+ MPH on what is a ~35 MPH two-lane road with the kiddies in back... strapped in or not...
Isn't anyone else made even a smidgeon uncomfortable by a video depicting a driver going wildly above the speed limit with two children in the car? I assume 80mph isn't the normal speed on a German street.
Update: previous reply slipped in while I was typing this. Glad someone else felt a smidgeon uncomfortable too.
Do we know what the speed limits are in Germany ?
Did anyone notice the blind spot light on the side mirror, maybe its something else but it looks like the blind spot warning. Also there are controls in between the kids, are those new?
I see a blind spot light on the Mercedes but not on the TESLA. Someone in Germany might be able to tell us what those controls are.
Yes you are correct, had my hopes up for a moment that they were now shipping with lights in the mirror
The Tesla Dash warning showed the limit on that street being 50Km/h
A tad overly dramatic perhaps...still the bark of an AMG V8 is music to many a gearhead...like me.
But, I'm doing my part to reduce C emissions by ordering a 70D....which should offset the C emissions from my fun car. :tongue:
I'm going to use this quote, awesome.
No, because its a straight road. The driver can clearly see ahead. There is nothing dangerous about driving fast in a straight line.
On a two lane road with wooded area on one side and where residential areas are adjacent to the other side?
With oncoming traffic with no separation?
