Ludicrous Valentine's Day drag racing Tesla showdown: Husband's Model S vs. Wife's Model X [Tesla Eye Candy 50]
For this installment of Tesla Eye Candy, we take a closer look at the Tesla Model X. It turns out that this week, the Model X made its auto show debut at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto. Our winning image is from an auto show attendee who snapped this amazing pic (on top). We feature some other Model X images in our gallery from all over Instagram. The last two images and all of our featured videos are courtesy of Brooks Weisblat of Drag Times. Brooks held the fastest published P85D time drag racing at Palm Beach International Raceway. Scroll down below for some spectacular drag racing videos with Model X ...
And, for the featured Tesla Eye Candy videos, we've got some amazing Tesla Model X film footage from Drag Times. In the first video, Brooks Weisblat gives us a Valentine's Day surprise as he "added little twist... since the Model X is the wife’s car, we set her up to race the Model X vs myself driving the Model S. She had never raced a car down the 1/4 mile, never mind a car that has the potential to take down unsuspecting super cars, [the results were] very impressive with the Model X P90D Ludicrous running 11.61 @ 116 MPH in the 1/4 mile setting a new world record for the quickest production SUV/CUV. 0-60 MPH came up in just 3.1 seconds with 0-100 MPH in 7.9 seconds as per the VBOX data. Even as we did multiple races trying to get an even start between the two cars, the Model X continued to perform running consecutive 11.6x @ 115+ MPH passes down the 1/4 mile. The Model S ran 11.3-11.5 @ 116 MPH, check out the video below to see what these differences translate to when racing heads up."
