The Dobre Brothers got their hands on a CVR(T) reconnaissance tank that weighs 20,000 pounds, is equipped with an old Jaguar 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine, and runs a top speed of 52 miles per hour. They decided to put the tank to the test against the Tesla Model X in a drag race and tug of war.

The Tesla Model X weighs 5,500 pounds and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the “heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle.” The Model X managed to pull a 287,000 pound Boeing 787-9 one thousand feet on a taxiway at Melbourne Airport back in 2018.

Take a look at the video above to see how the Tesla X stacks up against a small tank. For more car content from the Dobre Brothers, head over to their youtube channel.
