Drag race: Tesla Model 3 vs Lamborghini Urus

May 06, 2022 by

Can a £60,000 electric car beat a £260,000 Lamborghini in a drag race? You’re in the right place to find out. 

For today’s drag race, Mat is piloting a Tesla Model 3 Performance. It has dual electric motors that deliver 490hp and 660Nm to all four wheels. Being an electric car, there’s no gearbox to worry about so acceleration off the line should be rapid. It’s a fair bit lighter than the Lamborghini, coming in at 1,850kg compared to the raging bull’s 2,197kg.

The Lamborghini Urus is hiding a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine under the bonnet with 650hp and 850Nm of torque. This power goes to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox with launch control.

So which car is your money on? Can the Tesla really take down a car £200,000 more expensive? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
