What wins out, an old-fashioned supercar or a new-school crossover?

We know the Tesla Model X P100D is very, very quick off the line. It recently won a drag race against its super-SUV rivals, but there's always something faster and more powerful ready to race.

With 450kW on tap from its four electric motors, and something called Ludicrous Mode, the Model X is a proper straight-line weapon, but it's up against some serious metal this time around.

The garish, chromed Lamborghini Aventador S lined up alongside the electric SUV makes 544kW of power and 690Nm of torque from its naturally-aspirated V12 engine. Oh, and the sound is enough to wake the dead.

Which one takes the cake? Only one way to find out.
