If you needed further proof that the Lamborghini Urus can hold its own against pretty much any non-hypercar opponent in a straight line, then you really should watch this 1/4 mile straight line battle between the Italian super SUV and the notoriously quick Tesla Model X P100D.
These two met up at Palm Beach International Raceway and raced each other four times, with how well they got off the line being the deciding factor in every single one of those races.
Powering the Urus is a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 producing a whooping 650 PS (641 HP) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of peak torque. With the help of an electro-hydraulically controlled 8-speed automatic transmission, the Urus can rocket to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph).
As you can see in the video below, the Urus proved it was more than a match for the Model X P100D, as long as its launch control system got it off the line as efficiently as possible.
The Urus’ best overall 1/4 mile time was 11.234 seconds at 120.12 mph (193.3 km/h), whereas on a separate run, the Model X managed 11.296 seconds at 117.64 mph (189.3 km/h). According to DragTimes, the Urus’ time constitutes a new 1/4 mile world record for SUVs, which shouldn’t be taken lightly – some supercar and super-SUV buyers really do care about accolades.
Now, which of these two SUVs would you rather drive on a daily basis? The striking Lambo, which is powered by a classic ICE, or the trendy, all-electric and environment-friendly Tesla?
