“With both cars charged up we headed for Palm Beach International Raceway, a 90 mile trip.  Along the way we stopped at the Tesla Supercharger in West Palm Beach, conveniently located just 15 miles from the track. We set both cars to charge to 100% so we could have max power for the races and after ~40 minutes we were ready to go.”

At the track, both cars performed admirably, but the numbers for the Model X were surprising to say the least:

“The results as you’ll see in the videos, pictures and data were very impressive with the Model X P90D Ludicrous running 11.61 @ 116 MPH in the 1/4 mile setting a new world record for the quickest production SUV/CUV.  0-60 MPH came up in just 3.1 seconds with 0-100 MPH in 7.9 seconds as per the VBOX data.  Even as we did multiple races trying to get an even start between the two cars, the Model X continued to perform running consecutive 11.6x @ 115+ MPH passes down the 1/4 mile.  The Model S ran 11.3-11.5 @ 116 MPH.”

You’ll find all sorts of additional data/info over at DragTimes.

Thats more than just impressive…

What’s most impressive is being smart enough to take it to the track. Kudos.

Good to see this on the track, did the wife race in those heels? very hot, she may have even faster in runners.
Great video.

I see the X is barely slower than the S. So when the “fat” X will beat Porsches, ‘vettes etc. on (short) drag races it will even be more annoying for those car owners.

They need to get a video of seven people in the model X blowing away some exotic supercar.

This is awesome. The model x just double proves that electric engines are awesome! Try that in your X5 or whatever other stinking monster you are driving!

Ahhh… How romantic!

Yup, of all the Valentine’s Day postings, this is probably the most unique.

LOL

Now, after this footage all Tesla Service centers are gonna be clogged by owners wishing to trade in their ” old ” Model S and rightfully claim a brand new outrageously fabulous Model X. Beyond doubt are X’s sales gonna outpace that of the S. Great CUV/SUV that Mr. X.

The Model X will need some time to win folks over to what a great, and revolutionary vehicle it actually is…

Videos like this, help that effort. Thanks. 🙂

Is the creaking sound prior to launch (at 1:09) due to using the Tesla Launch Control mode?

chickeee

its just the creaking of the brakes against 1000lb-ft and 1500 Amps of juice

Kacey Green

in other words, yes launch control
