We’ve seen some pretty ridiculous Tesla drag races over the years, more recently a Model S vs a snowmobile, but this one easily takes the first prize. At first glance, it might look like a fair fight, a Alfa Romeo 4C versus a Alfa Romeo 4C, but the second one is actually being towed by a Model X P90D.
If we want to be more accurate and look beyond the gimmick, the race is really between a Alfa Romeo 4C and a Tesla Model X P90D towing ~2,500 lbs, which is still an interesting experiment.
Sterling Anderson, Tesla’s former Model X Program Director and now Autopilot Program Director, shared the video on his Facebook page and had this to say:
Fun fact: many high-performance cars cross the quarter mile line faster when towed by a Model X than they do on their own four wheels.
- Load an Alpha Romeo 4C on a trailer
- Hook that trailer up to a Model X.
- Line up against another Alpha Romeo on its own feet.
- Race said Alpha Romeo in a quarter mile.
- Show Alpha Romeo who’s boss.
In your 6,000 lb SUV.

Too funny!! Which one won?
The race, not clear, either way The X won.
ALFA. It is with an F. Not a PH. Jesus christ.
So? who won?…what else will Tesla think 0f ?? these guys are advertising geniuses !
BTW…with all that torque , they’re lucky they didn’t loose the Alfa on the trailor… l o l …
What a load of crap ! How about we put a Tesla against a Tesla strapped to a Cruise Missile ? Either way, at least one wouldn’t survive.
never heard of an Alpha before!
One trick pony – now it has to sit at stable for the next day to charge…….
It’s a quarter mile, it would do nothing to the charge and even if it started with a low charge so the race would kill it, it’d only take 20 minutes to recharge.
Uneducated haters gonna hate.
