Tesla Model S Shows Muscles Against BMW M5 F10 [Video]
text size: A- A+
The challenge was a 0-100 mph (0-160 km/h) drag race, where the 560 hp BMW would try to keep up with the 416 hp Tesla - or is it the other way around?. However, with instant and seamless power delivery, the Tesla’s electric powertrain is a match to what the BMW offers.
While you may think that this is foregone conclusion, due to the power deficit that the Tesla has, but torque also plays a very important part in acceleration, so the 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) figure is definitely very relevant here, and while the BMW may have more of it, being rated at 680 Nm (500 lb-ft), it is not instant and seamless, and each gearshift puts the BMW slightly behind the Tesla.
So, which do you think will be the victor?
