Electric cars have like zero drive train loss as well as get 100% torque from zero throughout their entire rev range. Not to mention I think the Tesla Model S is all wheel drive. Even though the Model S is a whale considering its weight, we can see the effects about how important it is for how a car puts its power and torque to the ground.



Also, yes the M5 did not use Launch Control and was a bad launch by the driver.

With the E60, it seemed to me that when you went from a 550i to an M5, while the leather and the sat-nav were the same, underneath, it was a completely different mechanical driving platform. With the M550i and F90 M5, that vast difference isn't really there.
