Here's A Tesla Towing A Qantas Dreamliner

Cars are a common mode of transportation and the idea of these four-wheeled vehicles towing airplanes isn't new to the world.

Even if you're a die-hard petrol-head, you have to admit, that is mighty impressive though some might remember VW pulling off a similar stunt with its V10 Touareg hauling a 150 tonne 747. Given the massive coverage this event received, other vehicle brands soon entered the fray to dethrone the record set by the Touareg. Tesla's Model X P100D has pulled a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at a taxiway in Melbourne Airport during a publicity event by Australian aircraft carrier Qantas. Nissan managed to pull a gargantuan 170-tonne cargo plane to set a new record in 2013.

We have seen dozens of videos of Tesla's punching above their weight towing everything from jeeps to semi-trailers, but this video takes the cake.

Electric Vehicle brand Tesla has now hopped onto the car-towing-airplanes bandwagon. The auto actually received a Guinness World Record for heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle. Tesla made a decision to use a Model X P100D SUV to tow a Qantas 787-9 Dreamliner carrying a small amount of fuel but no passengers. The Model X towed the empty aircraft for about 300 metres creating the world record. This model has all-wheel drive thanks to a dual-motor setup and makes peak torque off-the-line.
