Uncle Sam vs. Union Jack. Preferred ride of Silicon Valley vs. James Bond’s go to whip. Up start futurism vs. old world elegance. Pebble Smartwatch vs. Rolex. Something American vs. Something English… This was posted online a few months ago, but it’s still a great video. Highlighting some of the amazing strengths of the Model S versus the gorgeous Aston Martin Rapide, this Youtube clip by Autocar pits the two cars against each other. Now the comparison as they even admit, is more focused on the Model S, and ignores some things about both cars. The comparison is mostly based on the Tesla’s acceleration and speed, versus an overall comparison. This is rather fair, given the Aston Martin is about three times the cost. Nonetheless, it’s amazing how well the Tesla competes.
