Watch this Tesla Model X go head-to-head against a Lamborghini

The Tesla even manages to set a record in the process

An electric SUV shouldn't be this powerful but the Tesla Model X P100D showed itself to be a class act as it took on a Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce.

Not your mother's SUV

DragTimes set up the interesting race, where the P100D was set to the Ludicrous+ Performance mode, to better show off its mettle against the Lambo.

Apparently the Tesla managed to set a world record for an SUV in a quarter mile race, which is actually not surprising seeing the capabilities of the car. It has a dual-motor all-wheel drive, a 100kW/h battery pack and DragTimes estimates the car has at least a 920 pound-feet of torque coupled with 588 horsepower.

The Lamborghini boasted a 6.5 litre V12 engine with 740hp and 508 pounder-feet of torque, the most powerful of all Aventador variants. Though in the video the Model X beat the Lambo by 0.05 seconds, it wasn't so much the car as the driver's slow reaction time. Stats show that while the Model X had a 11.418 second elapsed time and 117.85mph  trap speed, the Aventador scored better at 11.281 seconds and 129.38 mph.

Still, watch the video for a demonstration of how far Tesla's come in the last few years. The future it seems, is bright for petrol heads dreaming of an electric future.
