AutoMobile Magazine contributor Ezra Dyer decided to put two vehicles, one of which is electric, up against each other in an impromtu 0 – 100 mph drag-race.
The models were two luxury sedans – The electric Tesla Model S and the four-door 2013 BMW M5. The place was Gingerman Raceway in western Michigan, in the U.S.
The result? Closer than anyone expected.
Watch the two cars go head-to-head in the video below:
Back in February, Chris Harris also pitted the BMW M5 against the Nissan GT-R. Take a look at the result of that comparison here.
