Which is quicker in a drag race between four of the most luxurious high-performance Sport Utility Vehicles SUVs on sale?
Is it the Lamborghini Urus or the Porsche Cayenne or the Bentley Bentayga or the Audi RSQ8 — the results from this clip may surprise you.
Carwow.cow has brought four of the world’s fastest SUV together on track for a straight-line drag and the results may surprise you.
All four brands from three different countries are part of the giant Volkswagen Group. The SUVs also share much of their underpinnings and mechanicals.
The Bentayga is the best selling Bentley model. The “Speed” version is the fastest SUV on the planet.
Featuring a class-leading W12 engine with 626 bhp, it will go from 0 to 60 mph in 3. 8 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds).
The Urus is the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle. It is also the second world’s fastest SUV as well as Lamborghini best selling car.
The Italian sports car has a twin turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 641 horsepower and 850Nm of torque.
It can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 190mph (305 km/h).
Audi RS Q8
The RS Q8 Luxury Performance SUV is Audi’s fastest and most aggressive SUV ever.
The German SUV has a twin turbo 4.0-litre V8 that produces 592bhp and 800 Nm of torque.
It has a claimed acceleration from 0 to 100kmh in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305 km/h.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
The Turbo S is the most powerful version of the Porsche Cayenne.
The German SUV is one of the world’s greatest high-performance luxury sports sedans disguised as an SUV.
Inside the bonnet is a twin turbo 4.0-litre V8 and a 100kW electric motor. This setup produces a combined peak power output of 570 horsepower.
Turbo S can accelerate from 0 to 100kmh in 4.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 284 km/h.
In the side-by-side drag race experiment, the Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne Turbo S both crossed the line in 11.6 seconds.
But the footage showed the Urus appeared to be ahead of the Turbo S by a metre or two.
The Audi RS Q8 came in third place with a time of 11.7 seconds.
The Bentley Bentayga, with the most air to push out of the way, came last with a still-respectable time of 11.8 seconds.
Though Bentayga, the fastest on paper, lost the race, would-be buyers of the luxury SUVs aren’t going to care too much because non of these opulent SUVs weren’t built for drag racing.
