The Urus draws its power from a 641hp – 4 litre twin turbocharged V8 which also dishes out 850 Nm of peak torque. The Urus employs an electro-hydraulically controlled 8-speed automatic gearbox which helps it to reach 100 km/h in just 3.6 second and 200 km/h in just 12.8 seconds.

The Model X zips around with its 2 electric motors which jointly produce 588hp and 1247 Nm of torque while managing a 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. Even though the Tesla can achieve a faster acceleration on paper, it still is around 350kgs heavier than the Lamborghini.

The Urus achieved the best overall quarter-mile time at 11.234 seconds at 193.3 km/h while the Tesla achieved a timing of 11.296 seconds at 189.3 km/h, on a different run on the same day. DragTimes also claims that this happens to be the best quarter-mile time record for Urus, across the globe!
