In case you’re not up to speed on this topic (see what I did there?), note that the Tesla Model X is indeed the quickest SUV in the world (by far) and is one of the 30 quickest production vehicles in history. Most of the vehicles on that list cost a ton of money — like, a million dollars or more — and were actually produced in quite low quantities. The Aventador and Model X are indeed neck and neck on that list — 0.1 seconds apart in terms of their best 0–60 mph times.
