Lamborghini Urus vs Tesla Model X P100D drag race is closer than you think
Does the Urus stand a chance against the electric behemoth? You'd be surprised
The times we're living in: talking about a Lambo SUV trying to beat an electric SUV in a drag race
For those of you just awakened from a ten years-long coma, welcome to 2018, the year when Lamborghini brought a high-performance SUV to the market and a company named Tesla makes a falcon-winged SUV able to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
What happens when you put both of them on the drag strip? Well, the paper figures don't always tell the whole story. The Urus has a 4.0 V8 Twin-Turbo engine that develops 641 hp / 627 lb-ft of torque (850 Nm) and is able to go from zero to hero in just 2.9 seconds as well, while the Tesla Model X delivers 588 HP to the wheels and an incredible 920 lb-ft (1247 Nm) of torque.
The Urus is very heavy, at 4,850 pounds (2,200 kg), while the Tesla Model X P100D weights even more, at 5,700 pounds (2585 kg), because of the big battery pack. The price difference is staggering, though. The Urus in the video costs $255,000, while the Tesla Model X will set you back `just` $164,000. Both have very good AWD systems, so the fight will be pretty close.
How close? See for yourself in the following video from the DragTimes guys. Action starts at around 4:20.
So, what would you choose, if you got the money? The flashy Urus or the zippy Model X?
