The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is one of the most powerful options around, with 671 horsepower on tap, but it's slightly outshined by the Jeep Trackhawk, which gives its driver access to 707 horsepower! Depending on your available budget, there are also several other options like the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 S, the Aston Martin DBX, the Rolls Royce Cullinan, and of course the Lamborghini Urus and the BMW X6M.
And today we're looking at the last two mentioned vehicles going head to head on a soaking wet drag strip. The X6M Competition is the cheaper car here, as it is priced at £113,000 ($156,731 USD). The power unit is an already classic 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, that has an output of 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. The X6M Competition is the heavier car out of the two, weighing in at 5,224 lbs (2,370 kg).
As the two drivers line up for the race, Matt Watson who's in the BMW does note that "These BMWs launch super hard, so I might be able to beat him in his Urus". Before taking off, the two engage in an exhaust-note show-off, and the Urus is the winner without a doubt. Even though the track is soaking wet, both vehicles have AWD, and as soon as they get the signal, the BMW takes the lead, leaving the Urus just slightly behind.
At the end of the quarter-mile (402 meters), the X6M comes out on top, much to the surprise of both drivers. The conclusion is that the Urus might have started too slow, so a rematch was in order. For the second run, they're neck and neck going off the line. The race is over in 11.7 seconds for both cars, but the X6M is once again just slightly ahead and takes the win.
The two drivers then switch the cars back in their sportiest settings and do the rolling run once again. On this occasion the situation is different, and the Urus is victorious for the first time, as they reach speeds of about 160 mph (257 kph). They do a re-run and they end up with the same result. For the last test of the day, they look at the stopping power of two SSUVs, and oddly enough, the BMW X6M comes out on top once again.
