Watch Tesla Model X P100D Obliterate Audi RS4 In Drag Race

FEB 9 2019 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 16

It’s a beatdown this time ’round.

We’re not even gonna make you guess which vehicle wins this race. It’s full-on annihilation.

The Tesla Model X electric SUV crushes the Audi RS4 in this matchup, as is often the case in these Tesla drag races.

What’s truly entertaining though is watching a big, heavy SUV get the immediate jump on a much smaller and far lighter gas car. And if you thought the Model X would start to fade, well then, you thought wrong.

In addition to the starting-start race, there’s a rolling matchup and a brake test, too. The brake test is predictably won by the lighter Audi, but the rolling race, well…it’s electric!

It’s time for Audi and Tesla to go head-to-head! These are two of the most powerful practical cars on the market, but what will happen when they hit the track?

The Audi RS4 comes with a 2.9-liter V6 with 450hp, while the Model X P100D has 770hp and can hit 0-60 in around 3 seconds! So does the RS4 stand a chance against the fastest SUV out there?

There’s only one way to find out… Let’s race!

Why do you need drag races if you know the 0 to 60 times of these cars? You don’t need to shift gears, brake or take corners.

So they can get responses from folks who allegedly don’t like clicking on these articles.

(Their unbroken streak is still alive)

Breaking news: More expensive and more powerful car is faster than less expensive and less powerful car.

You may wanna research the price of the Audi:

(The P100D Model X starts at $140k. But hey, at least you were correct about the weight thing and power)

That’s the Australian price.

It’s $70k US. This is indeed a silly comparison.

Whoops, I’ll completely own that one. First hit I saw dollar sign but missed the .au in the url.

My bad..

Depends.. in Norway the Tesla is cheaper

Yawn
Yet another pointless drag race between a top of the line EV and an ICE.
Surely we know the result by now. The EV wins.
But hey, the 0-60 addicts get a hit out of it so…

Put them head to head around the Nurburgring and that would be interesting. Far more like a real life situation but in a controlled environment.

Yeah, I re-create Nuburgring in real life far more often than accelerating away from a stoplight or entering onto a highway.

Agree. We know P100Ds decimate practically everything. More price-class drag races, against Model 3, would be nice.

Just how badly will Model 3 kick other $40k tail?

Maybe the M3P would be a better match for the Audi RS4 ?

don’t get it fascination with this 0-60. this must be some american thing. when i see this type of news i can only think about RTA ‘PINKY’ COMMERCIAL.

verb (used with object), ob·lit·er·at·ed, ob·lit·er·at·ing.
to remove or destroy all traces of; do away with; destroy completely.

Really mate? the 2nd car was (probably) less than 20 frames behind the tesla – that warrants an “obliterate”?

I was kind of thinking the same thing. The headline is just a bit exaggerated.

While you can argue the use of obliterate is an exaggeration, it’s also a bit ridiculous to claim it was “20 frames behind”. It was at least a car length or more, which is quite a bit for a 0-60 race.

I dont see why a 770hp car would want to race a 450hp car… Seems kinda like a cheap shot… How does the tesla hanfle against something with similar power?
