With a 0-60mph time of 3.1 seconds, the Tesla P85D is more than a match even for petrol engine sports cars such as the Porsche 911 Turbo S and Lamborghini Huracán. But how does this 681bhp electric monster fare against the BMW i8 – Germany’s answer to the Tesla in the increasingly competitive electric supercar market? That’s what the guys at YouTube’s Drag Times decided to test out in this video, which pits the Tesla against the BMW in a straight drag race.
The i8 relies on a hybrid electric and petrol engine, and boasts a top speed of 155mph. So which car will win the drag race? Check out the video to find out. The results might just surprise you.
