Lamborghini Urus Gives It Its All Against The Tesla Model X P100D

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?

    I would favor the one that will become cleaner and better over time.

  • eye.surgeon

    Are you actually suggesting people drive Lamborghinis daily? They are toys.

    • Seats & a steering wheel

      Err … yes, the Urus is still a practical, comfortable and refined SUV. ICE strikes back! ..and a world record too. GO LAMBO!!!

    • benT

      there is a few i my city that I see daily and they live where there is only one garage space available in the apartment block per unit.

  • AngryBill

    a $250k SUV vs $150 SUV? I hope Lambo give free gasoline cause is 15mpg.

    • Seats & a steering wheel

      The Lambo will also murder the Model X around a track and off road. The one party trick the model x has is 1/4 mile acceleration..and now Lambo has beaten it there too..

      • Like you take a Lambo SUV around the track… Tesla X is a 7-seater family car that keeps up with Lambo on the road, and it functions just as any other SUV, including going a bit (!) off road. Again, you don’t take a “murderously” expensive SUV off road, especially if it’s a Lambo (unless it’s the Rambo Lambo of course).

        • Matt

          No you don’t take the Urus off-road, but the fact is the ability is still engineered into the car. Personally that’s quite impressive considering its track performance.

          • There is very little that it could do different off road than the Tesla, while it costs hell a lot more. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the Urus, I just think the Model X is much more of an accomplishment.

    • Finkployd

      don’t forget Lambo’s maintenance and repair costs

  • Finkployd

    The only reason I’d take the Lambo over the Tesla would be to sell it, buy the Tesla and keep the change

    • benT

      would be great therapy too!

  • Subi-Rubicon1

    It’s still impressive that the Model X came into the scene 3 years ago (2015) and its still keeps up next to a “super CUV” . I mean it was beaten by .08 second, while its cheaper to obtain and maintain and lets not forget it can carry 7 passengers and their accessories. Congrats Lambo.

    Perhaps the Model X could have been faster if it didn’t have overly-heavy gimmicky rear doors?

  • benT

    BTW,
    “Tesla holds a commanding lead in plug-in electric car sales for the year ……….159,0277 sold (Model 3, S & X) in the U.S. through the first 11 months of 2018.”.

  • Ken Lyns

    An EV has fancier doors than a Lambo? Must be 2018…

  • Ken Lyns

    Interesting data on the timeslips. Reaction time on the Tesla was 0.04 sec slower, 1/4 mile time also 0.04 sec slower. Basically the two SUVs were dead even.

  • Mark Schaffer

    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
