How does the Tesla Model 3 fare against some brawny German competition?

As the video description clearly states, the Model S would crush these two German powerhouses, but can the Model 3 come out on top too?

In addition to the standing-start drag race, there's a rolling race and a braking test too.

The Model 3 boasts two electric motors with 450 HP and 640 Nm of torque, all-wheel drive and instant electric torque.

On the gas side, the BMW M850i xDrive has a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that puts out 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque. It's AWD and features an automatic 8-speed gearbox. Meanwhile, the E63 S AMG has 612 HP and 850 Nm of torque. All three cars are capable of hitting 60 MPH in under 4 seconds.

Grab a look at the always impressive video from Carwow to see the results.

It’s time for an electric v petrol drag race! We know these two German powerhouses would be no match for the Tesla Model S, but how will they fair against its baby brother, the Model 3?

The E63 & M850i cost about double the price, so surely the Model 3 won’t have a chance… will it?!

There’s only one way to find out… Let’s race!
