First off... I don't condone illegal street racing.
With that said, along a quiet stretch of road the other day, a 2011-12 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible came up besides be at a red-light, man in his 50's revving his 430 HP V-8 ICE engine. No other cars were around, and I had just finished my long commute home, and had 40 rated miles left on my P85, so I couldn't resist.
Either way, I punched it off the line (as did he), and I was at least two to three car lengths ahead of him to 70 MPH, after 85 he started catching up, and by 120 he was at my side, before we both let off (as we were coming up on a stoplight), he smiled and went on his way.
I am not sure how much better I would have done with my P85 having a 90% charged battery, however, considering his car is closely rated to mine, it was fairly obvious who had the advantage to 120 MPH. I am sure he would have overtaken me after 130, however, who gives a crap (I don't live in Germany).
