M5 vs. Tesla Model S Drag Race

BMWs aren't about 0-100 mph times. Nevertheless, a Model S beat an M5 two out of three times in Automobile magazine's drag race.

The cars are about the same price. The M5 has better numbers on paper. In a real test 100% torque from a standstill makes a difference.

Ezra Dyer pits the Tesla Model S against the BMW M5 in a drag race during Automobile Magazine's 2013 Automobile of the Year testing.

Anyone with an M5 care to comment if they are using Launch Control properly?
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
