Tesla Model X

Tesla Model X

Racing driver Nick Padmore recently had the chance test the Tesla Model X ... at the race track for the first time.

The Model X clocked a time of 1:38.89 at Goodwood, and was considered by Nick (who owns a Goodwood lap record BTW) to be quick, quiet, smooth; the weight of the SUV did factor in to its driving performance, but it was also stable and elicited a lot of "EV grin".

How fast can a Tesla Model X lap Goodwood?

Climb on board with Goodwood record holder Nick Padmore as he puts the powerful 2.5-tonne Tesla Model X through its paces!

Just as a point of reference, the best time for a Lamborghini Murcielago is at around 1:28.60.
