Jaguar I-Pace v Tesla Model X drag race – VIDEO

The Jaguar I-Pace hasn't been around long, but it's already being compared with the Tesla Model X. Although the Big Cat is a bit smaller than Elon Musk's showy crossover, there are plenty of similarities. Both the Model X and I-Pace come with dual-motor all-wheel drive, and the 90kWh battery in the Jaguar is a rough match for the 75kWh or 100kWh options in the Tesla.

Bentley Bentayga V8 brakes are largest, most powerful on a series production car

The standard brakes on the Bentley Bentayga V8 aren't what you'd call 'small'. The steel rotors measure 400mm up front, gripped by six-piston calipers from Brembo. According to Bentley Bentayga product line director, Peter Guest, the package was approved after an exhaustive development process. "Long before we settled on this system, we got through many, many pad combinations and other stuff to get to where we were happy with the braking performance of the standard brakes," Guest said.
