When we first tested the new Model X P90D with Ludicrous mode at the drag strip running an amazing 11.6 @ 116 MPH at Palm Beach International Raceway we were quite surprised how quick and fast it was compared with the Model S P90D Ludicrous running 11.3 @ 116 MPH in a direct heads up race. Given the extra 600+ pounds the Model X has to carry around over the Model S combined with Tesla’s own spec that both have the same motors, same battery and make the same power (532 HP motor power), the numbers just didn’t add up.

Check out this race between a 2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 going up against a Tesla P85D with the Ludicrous upgrade. The Huracan is powered by a 5.2L V10 putting down 602 horsepower through a 7 speed dual clutch transmission and the Tesla has two motors with 502 HP in the rear and 259 HP in the front. However, the torque difference is pretty big between the two, with Tesla making well over 700 ft lbs and the Huracan making just 412 ft lbs. duPont Registry shows the P85D selling for around $110k with the Huracan coming in at $230k on the used market.

It’s a race many Tesla owners have been waiting for, a Tesla P90D with the $10,000 optional Ludicrous mode from the factory vs a Tesla P85D that has been upgraded from Insane mode to Ludicrous mode at a Tesla service center a cost of $5,000. The reasoning behind the less expensive upgrade option for existing P85D owners was because the P90D with Ludicrous mode came out so quickly after the P85D with Insane mode leaving early adopters who spent big $$ on the P85D behind. While Tesla states that an upgraded P85D with Ludicrous isn’t as quick as the P90D with Ludicrous the Read More
Talk about silent but deadly; this P85 blasts from 10 to 110 mph (in seconds) and doesn’t make a sound. This Tesla raced the Viper previously and took a beating. This video shows the rematch, after a few minor upgrades for the Tesla. Check out the action. This is street racing. The first contest is roll racing, from 10 to 110 mph and the Tesla wins handily.

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
