Boeing 737-800 Vs Tesla Model S P90D. Awesome Vid!

Sun Apr 03, 2016 9:13 pm

If this is a repeat please delete, I haven't seen it on here yet though.

Qantas B738 vs Tesla model S P90D. Obviously its just another one of those typical car vs plane vids where the car gets the lead then the plane takes off and is gone lol, but this video sure has some amazing footage of two amazing pieces of technology. I think the 737 was a good choice here as I always thought the 737s had a sports car kind of look, low and sleek! Enjoy!

For what it's worth the 737-700 would be a little quicker down the strip and in the air than the 800.

This is true, and the 700 series climbs like no other too.

Judging by the video, it looks as though the plane only used half of the 3km runway - google sat view of AVV https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-38....412,12815a,20y,6.98h/data=!3m1!1e3

I was literally only thinking last week, I wonder who would win in a drag race, a car or a plane and just in time Qantas provides the answer  .

I guess the vehicle will always be faster at accelerating from 0-60 against a passenger plane, but what would be interesting is to see what wins if the aircraft had a super long take-off roll.
