Watch Tesla Model X 100D Race 510-HP Audi TT-RS: Video

MAR 1 2019 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 9

Ain’t it odd seeing an SUV up against a proper sports car on the track?

This hot, souped-up Audi features AWD, so might it stand a chance against the Tesla in a drag race?

The are several different races featured here, so if you’re interested in just the Audi versus Tesla Model X matchup, then fast forward to the 1:09 mark in the video.

How does the big Tesla Model X 100D (note: this isn’t the Performance version) SUV fare in a drag race against this souped-up 510-hp Audi TT-RS? The Audi takes on a Ferrari, Lamborghini and several other challengers too.

What we find most interesting here is the sheer size difference between the Model X and the Audi and that it’s a close race, despite it not being the Model X P100D version, which is far more suited to these races than the 100D.

Video description:

This time I have filmed a 510HP Audi TT-RS 2.5 TFSI Quattro in action on the drag strip, doing some head to head races.

It’s up against a Tesla Model X 100D, Ferrari California T, Lamborghini Murcielago and more!

Meh.

At least show price as tested.

Has ANYONE ever tried CORNERS?? naught-60 times are mostly irrelevant… It takes a proper driver to set up for a turn. Double digit IQs only work in a straight line huh?

0 to 60 is very easy to set up, and easy to compare.

> It takes a proper driver to set up for a turn.

Exactly, and many of these (0 to 60 race, 1/4 mile tracks) in the US, allow any driver to bring their car on to compete.

The Tesla x100D race seems questionable.

Yes, finally another drag race. Haven’t seen one in like 24h.
When do we get some proper race track footage?

I am absolutely tired of all the Tesla drag races, but everything will start again when the Porsche Taycan or the Audi E-Tron GT arrives. Dozens of boring drag races.

Racing is and always has been the ultimate metric for cars. We do need to see more ‘ring and other lap times though.

Model 3 @ TMS or Daytona perhaps?

Until an electric thrills Joe Plumber, we ain’t there yet.

I’d rather lose in style than be seen a crappy electric SUV, the 2.5 5 cylinder is both epic in sound and pedigree, not to mention as soon as a corner or autobahn are in play the TT Rs wins. Every time
