Here’s a fun matchup. Watch as the BMW F10 M5 drags against the Tesla Model S to 100MPH. Here are their specs on paper:

Tesla Model S – 443 lb-ft torque @ 0-5100rpm, RWD, 0-60mph 4.4s (factory quoted), 4,647 lbs
F10 M5 – 502 lb-ft torque @ 1500-6560rpm, RWD, 0-62mph 4.4s (factory quoted), 4,288 lbs

The race is a close one and many variables shift the advantage to the Tesla S in such a race. For one, the race is only to 100MPH. Although the Tesla is heavier, it gets full torque to the wheels instantly. You can see the M5 catching up and about to pass at the 100MPH mark, resulting in it winning 1 of the 3 races.
