Watch Tesla Model X Crush Lamborghini Urus, AMG G63, Range Rover

NOV 11 2018 BY JACOB OLIVA 16

This might very well be the ultimate SUV drag race ever.

Now, didn’t we say we love drag races? This time, however, the race would be between four formidable SUVs with unfathomable power ratings inside their bonnets.

The main character here is the Model X, which stands as the “SUV” among the electric vehicle range of Tesla.

The main antagonists of this drag race episode of CarWow are one German, one Italian, and one British: the Mercedes-AMG G63, the Lamborghini Urus, and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR.

The three contenders are beaming with power outputs, starting with the Mercedes-AMG G63, which packs a 4.0-liter biturbocharged V8 under its hood. It’s capable of producing 577 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, sending those power on all fours.

Next is the Urus, which is regarded as among the most-powerful SUVs that have ever been made, not to mention, the most practical Lamborghini to roll out of its production line. It’s powered by a 4.0L biturbocharged V8, producing 650 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, catapulting the SUV from zero to 62 miles per hour in just 3.2 seconds.

The British contender, the Range Rover Sport SVR, packs its own brand of punch underneath its stylish body. Under its hood resides a 5.0L supercharged V8 from the Jaguar F-Type that can produce 575 hp. It can sprint to 60 mph in just four seconds.

While the contenders of this ultimate SUV drag race produce outstanding numbers on each of their spec sheets, the Tesla Model X is no pushover. The particular variant in this race is a P100D performance version, which could produce up to 772 horsepower coupled with instantaneous torque delivery that EVs are known for. 0 to 60 mph? That’s just 2.9 seconds for the Tesla Model X.

Now, which one’s going to win this ultimate SUV drag and rolling race? Watch the video above to find out.

I’m honestly getting sick n tired of these kind of videos and races. But woo, brownie points for Tesla I guess!

Well that video has been out only 1 day and has over 1.6 Million views, so when views stop going thru the roof is when they will stop making these video your tired of.

I also love that lots of people are watching it, because it’s showing them that electric cars aren’t necessarily boring, over-glorified golf carts. Which may cause some of them to start looking at EV’s in general, and for some it may lead them to buying one over a gas car for their next car purchase.

I’d call that a win for electrics, and our health, over a longer term.

I think they deserve the views for adding the rolling start.

That’s the best part of EVs, and almost nobody captures it in numbers. I went from a 300hp car to a Leaf, and aside from a standing start and pull above 120km/h+, I prefer the Leaf’s acceleration experience. And that’s just a Leaf! A Bolt is a step better and a base Tesla is in another league.

Once the Y comes out, all comparable ICE SUVs are gonna feel like garbage.

While there is at least no manual gear shifting, these drag races are just pointless. Just look at the specs sheet and you’ll know the winner without all that hastle.

Too bad the price is going up, it’s just not good what the administration is doing for carmakers, and ultimately the consumer, as prices must rise to pay for the tariffs. Cars use a lot of steel and some use a lot of aluminum.

They need to start showing these races that simulate real world conditions: from idle with the ICE vehicles. No one drives around winding out their ICE engines at stoplights, the time gap of prepping an ICE for launch should be added to the acceleration time. My grandma can “launch” an EV, the same can’t be said about an ICE.

That would be a good follow up to “Grandma’s reaction to Tesla”, with “Grandma’s reaction times racing Tesla”. I could just see people’s response to an 80 year old Grandma dusting people at the track.

Didn’t Jay Leno do a video where he “raced” a grandma who was driving a Tesla?

As long as those who spend $100k on a car do it for power and speed, the faster more technologically advanced Ev will always have the ICE consumer questioning their purchase decision. Even dealerships don’t want to have a similar EV and ICE side by side, because it makes the ICE looks so old school, especially if the manufacturer has not planned for mass production of the Ev version. So the manufacturer will overprice and make special order their EV to deter sales, and push sales to their current ICE version, knowing the customer wanted the EV.

What’s certain is the next gen Urus will be an EV on VWs new MBE platform.

That one actually had entertainment value for me because of the personalities of the drivers and the back and forth bantering.
Normally, I’ve had my fill of watching Tesla (model of the day) beat some other car, but I did enjoy watching this one.

Agreed, this race video was indeed an exception, enjoyed it as well.

It’s not fair comparison! Only Tesla is EV!

So, what is he on about? Charging/heating the battery for Ludicrous mode?
