Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Thanks to Richard for bringing along his Tesla -

It’s time for an almighty petrol vs electric drag race! Mat’s in his long-term RS6 (one of the last videos he filmed with it 😭) and he’s going up against the Tesla Model X Performance!

Now you older carwow fans will know this isn’t our first drag race with a Model X, and you’ll know just how quick they can be… And this one’s no exception! Powered by dual electric motors, it can produce 778hp and a whopping 1,140Nm of torque! It’s pretty heavy though, weighing in at 2,485kg.

So what chance does the RS6 have? Well it’s certainly not low on power, with a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 packed under the bonnet to produce 600hp & 800Nm! And even though it’s a big performance estate, it’s still a whole lot lighter than the Tesla - almost 400kg lighter!

So what do you think, will the electric power of the Model X propel it to victory? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    In real world setting of role racing, the RS6 would be cruising in the comfiest setting at 50 mph, and Tesla will jump off so quickly so RS6 won’t catch it easily

    1. odisy64
      Před 11 dny

      @MazoviaADV why would it be higher? Both the battery and motors are below your feet, its the most roll over resistance SUV in the world with a 8% rollover rate i believe. Model S and 3 are around 5% the lowest in the world.

    2. MazoviaADV
      Před 11 dny

      @odisy64 the 1/2 ton must make a difference, the CG must by higher in model X than RS6. Overall for corners I would pick Audi hands down

    3. odisy64
      Před 12 dny

      Teslas corner pretty well, even the model X since their center of gravity is extremely low.

      @Hanz Martin why would that happen? Teslas have some of the strongest chassis thanks to the extremely ridged battery in the center. Go look at a side poll impact test on a tesla and compare it to a gas car.

  49. Samuel Mwangi
    Samuel Mwangi
    Před 20 dny

    Mat the rolling race is practically unfair for all the races. You should consider the winner by looking at the car which picked up speed well and maintained the speed per roads regulations. Just because you came pass the car that picked up well at 160mph doesn't make you a winner. There us no way you're gonna be overtaking 160mph on normal roads. Thats practically possible but not on our roads with limits and regulations. I would suggest if you judge by which car picked up well upto the limits in your country. Assuming that 150mph is the road limit, Let's say A picked up and left achieving 130 mph then B came passed it at 150(or less)mph, B wins. But if A picked up achieving 150mph then B comes past it at 160mph, A wins because it has observed regulations. B broke them so as to pass you which rules it out. Am a Driver in Kenya and mostly 120kmh is the maximum speed set and sometimes you want to overtake another car going at 110kph but you can't since you would have to drive at 120-140kph to overtake quick which poses risk against safety and also laws of the country. I hope it clear, its just an idea because some of the speed you overtake with in rolling races are practically not just applicable, and unsafe too on our roads.

    Can you do a race that is reliant on weight ? So like 1000hp but 2000kg and then 750hp at 1500kg and 500hp at 1000kg or something ? Would be interesting to see how power to weight has an effect on performance. Ta.
