What’s faster? An @AlfaRomeo #4C or an @AlfaRomeo #4C… being towed by a @teslamotors #ModelX #P90D #ludicrous? @jasoncammisa

A video posted by Earth’s Automotive Authority (@motortrend) on

This is not your typical drag race…

Seen here is a Tesla Model X P90D with Ludicrous towing an Alfa Romeo 4C in a drag race against an Alfa Romeo 4C.  (Youtube re-uploaded added below for those having trouble viewing – hat tip to absidu)

We don’t recommended towing a car during a drag race, but the folks over at Motor Trend decided to give it a shot.

LOL! Getting funnier all the time!

Speculawyer

Genius. Pure genius.

Big Solar

so, who won?

Cavaron

Wondering also… looks like the X though.

kdawg

Yeah, I don’t think that yellow car is ever going to catch that Tesla.

So at this point it appears the only thing Tesla owners do is drive cross country and drag race their cars. If I read the EV sights that’s about the only thing I see. I guess also prepare to put down $1k USD on the Model 3.

Cavaron

When you read the EV-sites, would you click on an article saying “mum driving to a 7-Eleven with the Model X”? 😉

mr. M

sure

mr. M

but a more interesting article would be “mum driving a 7-Eleven within the Model X” ^^

Brian

I would rather it be “mummydriving to a 7-Eleven with the Model X”

Mum driving Model X into a 7-Eleven

Finally I get to see it! Thanks.

Jay Cole

Thanks Absidu, did not see a YouTube version when we went to press…will add that into the story for those who have issues with the Instagram embed.

This look to be frame up all the way.
If sound(noise) of the engine and the peculiar way this is shifted and release give any indication, the ICE Alfa just keep releasing to let the Tesla follow.

Drake

It’s this weird thing those gas powered cars do… I think it’s called shifting.

Djoni

Well, I know what shifting is.
But there is shifting and shifting.
Power shifting, over shifting and lazy, very lazy shifting.
This one is a casual shifting manage to have a Sunday ride as smooth as possible.
Far from a drag requirement.
Anyway, who need that anymore.

It’s An Alfa , Not a Ferrari..

Big Solar

and… its a 7 seat SUV towing a car, not a Rimac.

Speculawyer

OK, the person that thought up this race was a genius! That is hilarious.

Just keep in mind that 4C only got 237HP.

It isn’t really fast and very light.

I wonder if the Model X dares to repeat that with a Nissan GTR or Porsche 911 Turbo S.

Hector

Not very light? are you kidding? Is 900kg car.

And makes 100km/h in 4,5 seconds.
Same as Porsche Carrera 911.

Is not shame to lose against Model X P90D, even towing a car.

Anybody knows about the times they made?

Loboc

I hope that trailer has LRRs.

Josh

No way, wouldn’t you want more grip for the drag racing. j/k

Open-Mind

If Tesla ever starts doing commercials, this could be a brilliant one. Just needs some voice-over…

“What’s quicker than the legendary Alfa Romeo 4C? This Tesla Model X 7-passenger SUV … pulling an auto trailer … loaded with an Alfa Romeo 4C. New times … new technologies … new legends.”

ModernMarvelFan

“What’s quicker than the legendary Alfa Romeo 4C?”

LOL. Nobody in the drag racing field would ever find the 4C legendary in drag racing at all…

In handling, yet. Drag racing? 4C is a pig with only 237HP.

Open-Mind

Most people won’t know its HP, so I don’t think that matters. It looks fast, and it sounds fast, and it’s exotic. That’s why this video is getting attention.
