Tesla Model S Plaid vs Donk Drag Racing
The Tesla Model S Plaid is currently the world’s fastest EV around Germany’s Nürburgring, but can it compete with a 2,500 hp donk? The latter is basically a 1971 Chevy Impala powered by a heavily tuned turbocharged LS7 V8 engine sourced from a C6 Corvette Z06, all the while riding on 26-inch wheels, which is definitely an unusual sight at the drag strip.

Most know that the Tesla Model S Plaid is powered by a tri-motor setup making over 1,000 hp, enabling it hit 60 mph in a blistering 1.98-seconds. Some might be wondering what a “donk” actually is, and it’s just the nickname given to a customized 1971-76 Chevrolet Caprice or Impala. Many automotive enthusiasts incorrectly use the term to describe any custom car with large wheels. As for the races, it’s much closer than you think.
