The drag strip is perhaps the perfect place for an electric car to show off its muscle. After all, electric motors provide instant torque off the line and there's certainly no range anxiety over such a short distance. In fact, we've seen firsthand how well a custom-built electric dragster can fair on the strip. But what about a non-modified sports-EV like the Tesla's Model S?

Automobile Magazine decided to find out by pitting a stock Model S Performance against a BMW M5. Check out the results in the video below:
