Dodge Viper Falls to the Tesla Model S

Good afternoon, it appears BMW isn’t the only one having to worry about Model S at the race track… The Model S takes off and the Dodge Viper SRT is banished to the Tesla’s rear view (camera) mirror… Now this isn’t the latest generation of the Viper, but still quite an impressive feat.
