Consider this the ultimate test of horsepower: A Tesla racing against an actual horse.
It was an unlikely matchup on Sunday at the Greenwich Polo Club’s season opener, where a Tesla Model S P85D squared off against a polo pony being ridden by Joaquin Panelo, according to the New York Post.
The race was a close one, but ultimately, the Tesla’s 691 horsepower beat the single horsepower.
The stunt was all part of a stop on the electric automaker’s national test drive tour.[nicelink url=”http://chicago.suntimes.com/business/7/71/380424/tesla-insane-test-drive-hits-chicago-area”]
Tesla can now add this to its list of race victories, which includes the time a Model S smoked a 707-horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
Oddly, this wasn’t one of the most absurd races we’ve seen. There was that time the NFL’s Devin Hester raced a cheetah.
Let’s also not forget about that an epic race between camels and a bunch of dwarfs.
