Video: Tesla car in speed duel with Qantas plane

While clearly an attempt to show off their new partnership, a new video of Tesla's new Model S racing a Qantas Boeing 737 is still a very impressive watch.

The Tesla has the ability to accelerate very, very quickly, especially when put into 'Ludicrous' mode, as is done in the video -- going from 0 to 100km/h in just three seconds.

That speed allows the Tesla to get off to a rapid start, leaving the plane well behind early in the race -- but that soon changes when the Boeing's twin engines kick into gear.

Watch the video.
