Check out this race between the Tesla Model X vs an Audi R8. The Audi in this race is powered by a 5.2L V10 with 525HP along with all wheel drive and a 6 speed manual transmission. The Model X is the P90D along with the $10,000 Ludicrous speed upgrade. Can the Audi hang with the all electric Tesla SUV?
Since the Model X took down the Ferrari F430 last week in a race we decided to bump up the speed a bit and pit the Model X against one of the quickest and fastest super cars available today, the McLaren 650S. With the McLaren’s 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo engine pumping out 641HP through the rear wheels and weighing in at 3,200 pounds and the Model X with it’s combined 762HP (560HP usable) AWD and 5,600 pounds, the Model X really isn’t a match at all, or is it? This depends on the situation, we decided to run the cars against each Read More
While we’ve seen a bunch of races between the Tesla Model S and various supercars, this is the first we’ve seen of the all new 7 passenger 5,600 pound Model X Tesla SUV racing. The Model X in the video is a P90D with the optional $10,000 Ludicrous mode going up against a bright red and loud Ferrari F430 with the F1 6 speed transmission. While the power to weight ratio is heavily in the Ferrari’s favor, the monstrous amount of instant torque and all wheel drive in the Tesla play a big role in this race.

Tesla Model X vs Model S P90D Ludicrous – World Record Set During Husband vs Wife Drag Racing 1/4 Mile ShowdownFebruary 14th, 2016
We have some great heads up drag racing and performance comparisons between the all new and hard to come by 2016 Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous in Deep Blue Metallic (photo gallery) running against a 2015 Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous. Tesla’s Model X (SUV) and Model S (Sedan) P90D share the same powertrain with dual motors, a 503 HP rear motor and a 259 HP front motor. While the motors are capable of a combined 762 HP, the power is limited to what the battery can provide which is currently 463HP (Insane Mode). When the X or S is ordered with the Read More

We have some initial performance tests of the brand new 2016 Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous with some really amazing results. Our test car has the 7 seat configuration with every option available including the Ludicrous speed option. Using the launch control feature the Model X pulled over 1.1g to hit 0-60 MPH in just 3.17 seconds and 0-100 MPH in 7.98 seconds making it the worlds quickest production SUV. This Model X P90D Ludicrous is actually quicker to 100 MPH than the Model S P85D, Tesla’s previous king of the hill car that was making headlines all over the world by Read More
We recently installed the latest version of Tesla’s software version 7.1 which includes a new Summon Feature. In this video demonstration we use the Summon feature to come pick us up in the rain under a covered porte-cochère so we don’t get wet walking to the car. The Summon feature will also pull in and out of a garage without anyone in the car as well as open and close the garage door using the homelink feature as needed. Check out the video below:
We recently installed a set of lightweight Pulse MV1 wheels finished in glossy gunmetal on our Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous that were designed specifically for the Tesla. These 1-piece ultra-light weight wheels forged from the finest grade aluminum and have been optimized to have a wider track on the rear without compromising the ride or handling and without need for modifications of the Model S fenders. Pulse MV1 wheel sizes are: Front: 21″ x 9.0″ ET30 Rear: 21″ x 10.5″ ET35 While we kept the stock OEM Michelin tires on the car we could go much wider in the rear with a 305/30/21 Read More
Tesla recently released a software update that includes a new feature called “Launch Mode” which is supposed to “help your car accelerate as quickly as possible” as per the release notes. We gave the new Launch Mode a test which requires the car to be in “Max Battery Power” Mode. Tesla’s Launch Mode operates similarly to other performance cars. While the car is completely stopped you press firmly on the brake with you left foot, then press the accelerator completely down with your right foot. Then you release the accelerator and press it down all the way again. Now the car displays a message Read More
