The team of the YouTube channel Carwow organized another acceleration race between two remarkable cars – the high-performance Audi RS6 Avant station wagon and the Tesla Model X electric crossover.
It’s no secret that Tesla cars accelerate very quickly and usually leave no chance to their competitors in such races. This is achieved due to the fact that all the torque is available to the driver when starting. Model X is no exception, but against it this time is a very fast and powerful car.
In this case, the electric crossover is its most powerful version Dual Motor Performance, which is powered by two electric motors – one on each axle, and they develop a total of 778 hp. and 1140 Nm. Due to the batteries, the Model X weighs 2485 kg, which helps for better traction, but is a problem at higher speeds. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is less than 3.0 seconds.
Rival Audi RS6 Avant is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 with twin turbo and 48-volt starter-generator, with 600 hp. and 800 Nm. The engine is combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission and an Audi quattro four-wheel drive system. The station wagon is lighter than the electric car, weighing 2075 kg.
The competition is held according to the usual Carwow regulations. The two cars compete for acceleration from a standstill, a start in motion at a speed of 48 km / h and brake efficiency at 113 km / h.
