The $529,000 Renovo Coupe will do smoky burnouts around a Tesla Model S

Tesla's Model S, the mascot for the modern electric vehicle, is a fine family hauler. In fact, it's a very quick one: it'll race from 0 to 60 in just 4.2 seconds when equipped with the 85 kilowatt-hour performance drivetrain, which is faster than just about everything else on the road shy of exotics and high-end sports cars.
