Can a Ludicrous Tesla Model X leave all the competition in the dust?
It depends on the competition, right? Well, how about a Suzuki Hayabusa, Porsche 996 turbo, Lamborghini Huracan Performante, stock charger Hellcat, Cadillac CTS-V, Skyline R34 GTR, TRC Hellcat (826whp), Mclaren 720s, modified Daytona charger, and Nissan R35 GTR?

As most of you know, many of the ICE cars that show up for these races can be heavily modified, and they don't lose their steam as the day wears on. This is not the case for the battery-electric Tesla SUV, but it impresses nonetheless.
We think it's safe to say that if you're a racing buff, this YouTube channel, and more specifically, this set of rivalries is sure to make your day. That is ... if you're an electric car fan. We'd venture to guess that you probably wouldn't be here if not.
Commenter c0c0asauce notes:
Tesla makes a good camera car but there's nothing interesting about it as a race car. It's common, it's stock, and its only trick is 0-100. No effort involved in acquiring or maintaining the vehicle either. Just sign a lease.

Hmm ... common (we think not). Stock (well, getting crazy acceleration out of a stock
car SUV is a good thing, isn't it?). Too bad the Model X's only trick is zero-to-100-mph sprints (chances are those quiet, seamless 0-30, 0-60, and even 0-100-mph metrics are what one might appreciate and actually use in everyday driving, especially in a family car!).
No effort in acquiring or maintaining, huh? (We don't know about you, but being able to get ahold of a crazy quick stock SUV like this and not having to worry about maintaining it just might be pretty dang cool). To each his own though ...
