    Didn't see this posted here yet.



    Way too much chit-chat. Skip to the 4C race @ 3:30 for the fun meat.

    Great to see MX and tesla presented this way. Whenever i mention how fast the MS 90DL is to my friends with ferrari/911, the response is just meh... Maybe tesla should add a sound generator to their cars...

    I actually found that entertaining. Not sure why they think the X is ugly though. Well, OK, so did I at first. It's most definitely growing on me though. ;)

    I have an Alfa 4C...well it's tuned so it's faster than the stock one...but can't wait for my MX! both are red with black leather inside, both get great mileage (well the 4C gets me almost 40mpg on the highway). Going to be a fun garage :)

    For comparison, a quick search shows the Bentley costing between $200K and $335K. The Alfa 4C is quite a bit less.

    The Model X appears to be a reasonable bang for the buck.

    I wonder how much stress that puts on the hitch (on the car and trailer).

    I just meant the 4C drag race. Brilliant stuff.

    So...anyone notice that the Bentley's trim is misaligned @ 7:05?

    The Bentley really has an optional dash clock that is more expensive than a fully loaded Model X?

    I really liked this review all around.But the bit with the 4c on the trailer was simply nuts.

    Interesting review, X is the clear winner, but I am truly baffled that those guys think the X is ugly. I think it's gorgeous.

    Aesthetics are subjective.

    +1

    After watching again, I really hate that they perpetuate the misinformation that if the X was out 18 months ago that Tesla would have had the 3 out by now. :rolleyes:
