Ultimate SUV drag race: Model X vs Urus vs AMG G63 vs Range Rover Sport SVR

Something you dont see everyday

2y ago

It used to be the case that supercar and hyper car drag races caught our attention and caused fierce debates, well todays ( and likely this months) craziest drag race you will see is between 4 SUVs with over 2500hp between them.

The cheerful chaps over at Carwow took a Tesla Model X P100D, super bright green Lamborghini Urus, a Mercedes AMG G63 and a Range Rover Sport SVR, to automotive journalists favourite place in the UK the Bruntingthorpe airfield and did what they do best. You know a race is epic when a freaking Range Rover is the cheapest car on the gird.

The Urus has the most powerfull petrol egngine on the grid with a 4.0 twin-turbo V8 developing 641 horsepower, the G-Wagen also uses a 4.0 twin turbo V but does away with 'only' 577hp, last but not lesat is the Range Rover with 'just' 575hp. The Tesla meanwhile develops a mind twisting 772hp and a mountain for torque.

Quite unsuprisingly the Tesla builds decimates the rest, with the Urus coming in a far second, the G-63 and Range Rover coming some time after that too. Of course it's all done in the name of silly fun but if we were to be sticklers we would request the race to be repeated off-road where now doubt the G-63 and Range Rover would come much more into their own.

  • Remember watching this the other day. In my experience, the SVR showcases just how much comfort an SUV loses when you dedicate it to performance. The G-Wagon, quite unbelievably, isn't anywhere near as practical as its size implies. In fact, I get the impression that its main objective is simply to take the driver from A-to-B in a manner that lets everybody else on the road know that he greets people with the word "safe", while holding out his fist to bump. As for the Lamborghini - ignoring the fact that this particular example is painted in a shade of chromed radioactive vomit, it's alright as a car. For back seat passengers however, that sloping rear roofline may prove invasive. That leaves the Tesla, which as a devout petrol head I never thought I'd hear myself saying is my personal favourite of the bunch. A guy who lives by me actually has one, and I can vouch for the fact that it is an exceptionally good everyday car. Thanks for sharing this with my tribe mate 😃
