Heavyweight Drag Race Features Urus, Model X, G63 And RR Sport SVR

This new drag race from Car Wow sees the new Lamborghini Urus take on challengers from Tesla, Mercedes and Land Rover

Remind me later

Whenever the Tesla Model X P100D is raced against similarly-sized, internal combustion engine-powered rivals, the electric minivan-cum-SUV usually romps to victory. In this drag race from Car Wow, however, this dual-motor heavyweight is facing some stiff competition.

The favourite for giving the Tesla a bloody nose out of this trio of challengers is surely the Lamborghini Urus. Its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 serves up 641bhp and 627lb ft of torque, making 0-62mph possible in just 3.6 seconds.

The race includes a couple of celebrity appearances, with Professor Green driving the Mercedes and Yianni behind the wheel of the Urus (hence the wrap)

The Mercedes-AMG G63 is a fair way off with 577bhp from its similarly configured engine, while the Range Rover Sport SVR isn’t far behind the German with 567bhp developed from a 5.0-litre supercharged V8.

Could either of these give a surprise, or is it going to be a straight race between the Tesla and the Lamborghini? Or will the P100D just trounce the lot? Press play to find out…
