Tesla Showcased Amongst Supercars

A Telsa Model S will be featured alongside the new Aston Martin Vanquish, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Jaguar XKRS GT and McLaren 12C Sprint.

This group with a combined total of almost 3,000 horsepower will be featured at UK’s Birmingham NEC to be the main act of the supercar presence at The Performance Car Show held January 9 to 12, 2014.

These supercars will take the spotlight on the stand of automotive magazine Autocar, which said it will celebrate and review these top road-going models.

The Tesla Model S will be the lone representative of electric vehicles. Underneath its conventional yet stylish exterior, the Tesla Model S features an aluminum and steel monocoque and comes with a variety of battery options to deliver varied power.

Even the standard 60 kilowatt-hour battery version provides 0-60 mph acceleration of 5.9 seconds and a 208-mile range (UK ratings), while the 85 kilowatt-hour battery reduces the acceleration time to 5.4 seconds. However, the 85 kilowatt-hour Performance Pack features a higher capacity drive inverter, allowing a 4.2 second 0-60 mph time and delivers an impressive 416 horsepower.
