And now for something complete different: A Tesla goes up against a horse

Tesla Model S vs a horse

There’s not much else to say here other than this is not something you see every day. Usually it’s a Tesla Model S P100D going up against a high-powered Supercar in a head-to-head all-out drag race.

This time however, it’s a Tesla Model S P100D going head to literal head with a horse. Yes, a single horse.

You might think this kind of race is silly, as the Tesla comes with 590 horsepower and can reach 100km/h in under 3 seconds.

But this test is on the stomping grounds of the horse, a slippery grass field. The test is also not a straight out drag race, but rather more of a slalom test with a sharp corner to return to the start line as the finish line.

As expected, the Model S takes the horse off the line (but is surprisingly close). But can the Tesla hold on to the lead until the end?
