The first Tesla race car in the world is ready to roll in 2017!

This gutted and race-prepped Tesla P100D, built for the Electric GT racing series, is ready to race. Last year it was only just a rumor and in November we had the opportunity to see the working prototype. Then at the UK’s Autosport International Show the he first racing-spec Tesla was unveiled with a live demonstration of the P100D version.

What’s really amazing about the Tesla race car is that it has been completely stripped. This resulted in losing 1100-lb weight. The motors make 778 horsepower and 734 lb.-ft. of torque.Thus, this car can hit 60 mph in 2.1 seconds.

The Electric GT’s first season will kick off in September. 10 teams and 20 drives will complete in seven races. Of course, the series needs time to come on it’s own but it’s cool to see a high-performance electric car. This is it!
