There are also ultra-luxury super-SUVs like the Aston Martin DBX707, Ferrari Purosangue, or the BMW XM Label Red. However, chief among them remains the exotic representative from Sant'Agata Bolognese – aka Lamborghini's Urus sibling of the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, or Volkswagen Touareg. It's also the sporty platform twin of the Bentley Bentayga, which is, in turn, busy doing battles with the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
However, what about an instance where the Lambo Urus meets the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk? It's not necessarily a common occurrence as the two SUVs usually dwell around different circles, but on this occasion, they met, sparred, and called it a good drag racing day. Interestingly, that didn't happen in America at the local quarter-mile dragstrip.
Instead, the Netherlands-based YouTube channel cvdzijden - Supercar Videos takes a break from filming prototypes and gives us a supercar-level, tuned SUV confrontation from Germany's Race 1000 events (the latest one took place on the airstrip of Airport Neuhardenberg, Germany). Aside from being an unprepped event, this race also occurs over the half-mile distance, so the rides and their drivers can hit pretty solid top speeds.
For example, before the brawl with the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, this black Lamborghini Urus – which is prepped for 1,000 horsepower by the good aftermarket folks over at PP Performance reached the half-mile marker in 17.43 seconds (at almost 250 kph/155 mph) during an initial solo run. The Trackhawk, which is also tuned to 1,000 horsepower according to the description, appeared for the brawl at the 2:52 mark, and both 'black beauties' lined up for a glorious race.
Well, as it turns out, one of the SUVs got walked – at least as far as the launch procedure is concerned, with one of the raging monsters taking the lead early on. Unfortunately, at the end of the race, we can't be sure which one got the laurels as the electronic scoreboard showed the mighty Urus got walked with a 17.16s versus 60.13s result. However, the trap speeds were much closer (249 kph/155 mph to 258 kph/160 mph), revealing the actual winner of the race was closely followed by the pursuer! Anyway, all in all, that was a mighty good race!
