And now for its latest party trick, a Model S which is an SUV was filmed somewhat trolling the Lamborghini Aventador in a drag race at the Palm Beach International Raceway.
Interestingly, the Model X achieved that with a 78% state-of-charge.
Two top-shelf Tesla cars both beat a Lamborghini Aventador, continuing to prove the technical advantages of high-end electric motors in acceleration.
Not only does the Tesla beat the Lamborghini in the drag race, it also sets a record for being the quickest SUV with a quarter mile time of 11.418 seconds while reaching a speed of nearly 118 miles per hour. The Tesla electric cars have an upper hand over the gas supercars as they have an option of instant torque that helps then accelerate quickly. The video uploaded by DragTimes, a Tesla Model X P100D crossover SUV is seen on the drag strip against a $530,000 Lamborghini Aventador.
Using Ludicrous Mode, the Tesla is able to launch to 60 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, allowing it to jump ahead of the Lambo quickly. This seems to have helped the Tesla Model X in setting the world record in this drag race. Search YouTube and you'll find dozens of videos of the Tesla Model S luxury sedan outpacing conventional combustion-engine sports cars. When the dust cleared, the Model X managed to squeak out a victory over the Lamborghini by the narrowest of margins, just.05 seconds to be exact.
