Tesla Model S 75D race Kia Stinger

The Kia Stinger GT, or GT S in the UK, is the hottest version of the brand’s gran turismo.

Top Gear recently noticed that this 3.3-liter twin-turbo variant boasts performance figures similar to those found in the slowest current version of the Tesla Model S. So they made a little drag race in order. As you can see in the video above, it’s a pretty good matchup. Slowest current version of the Tesla Model S 75D.

The Stinger GT S weighs in at a not-insignificant 1,909 kg (4,209 pounds) so it doesn’t appear to have much lightness added. Still, batteries are heavy, so it’s unsurprising the Tesla presses even harder on the scales at 2,108 kg (4,647 lbs). The Kia also has a slight horsepower advantage, with three more British ponies than the 75D: 365 bhp to 362 bhp.
