AutoMoto Reviews pits the BMW i8 against one likely competitor and one unexpected SUV.

"It is the first of our Performance Shootout 2016 drag race battles. As the first Audi RS3 has landed, we immediately took it on our annual Performance Shootout. It is lighter than the Range Rover Sport SVR, but not as light as BMW’s i8."

"Watch the result here!"

The i8 can't keep up with the likes of a Tesla Model S, but it's certainly no slouch and it absolutely dominates this race.
