Tesla is less hp and torque and weighs more. Huh? Makes one wonder.

If that wasn't only to 100mph and out to full quarter mile M5 would have won. Electric cars always gonna get the jump with its instant full torque. Still impressive showing by the tesla.

Excuse for the M5 losing the race: Launch Control was not used as there was lots of wheels spinning or simply bad driver, I say.

15-20 years from now internal combustion engines will be gone in regular passenger cars - you heard it here first.

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.

Nah I don't think that combustion engines will be extinct in that time. I think that combustion engines will continue to evolve as technology gets more advanced. Look at the changes the combustion has been through over the last 40 to 50 years. We've gone from huge discplacement highly inefficient engines to turbo charged and supercharged monsters that make way more power and are way more efficient. I think it's just gonna get better.

looks like that M5 also got a late start too, and it also looked like he was able to pull towards the end but didnt go all the way.... I have a golf cart that does 60+, 72 volt system, it flies off of the start and is programmable with a USB cable for performance at different speeds... electric does haul ass...even if its a golf cart...

Very impressive. However, I would like to see the same race from a 15-160mph roll to compare acceleration and not launch. That M5 launched like it was on wet pavement.

Tesla S is an awesome car but this would have ended differently if the M5 had been launched properly. Driver fail.

2 out of 3 times, so basically they had two bad starts with the M5, and one decent one. So don't suck at driving, got it.

Cool race, bad start by the M sucks but still great to see.

The electric car has virtually no drive-train loss. It also has near full torque at 0rpm. The power ratings are at the flywheel for the combustion engine. The power rating for the Tesla is basically RWHP. Do the math. Not to mention the Tesla is AWD. The Tesla is a beast.

I doubt it has the same track capability as the M5, though. But how many owners honestly take their M5 to the track? It's not much of a track car tbh. Too much of a fatty.

Is it just me? I think the person drove the M5 in this clip either "purposely" let the Tesla won or he/she never knew how to launch a M5. Anyways, not interested in electric car in any forms.
