Honestly!!! typical Myth Buster BS.
They used some trick video editing to try and cover up the fact they used a rolling start on a drag strip. (I've never heard of rolling start drag racing)
EVs are unbeatable off a standing start so to rig the race, the myth BSers specified a rolling start.
The only fair comparison is to run both rolling and standing starts, but then being fair isn't their gig.

Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drive line
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$25.00 per 100kms.

BMW i3 - is this the world's most desirable affordable electric car?
There may be disquiet about its gentle rate of climb, but the electric car
has, at last, taken off. The BMW i3 is leading the charge. Could it really
be better in the real world than the Tesla Model S?

BMW, along with Tesla, is doing what looked impossible a few years ago.
Electric cars are finally becoming desirable. Maybe it took the power of a
couple of premium brands to help them on the way. Or maybe it's the radical
looks and carbonfibre structure of the BMW i3? Either way, EVs are here to
stay. And if the BMW i3 is anything to go by, they're here to be enjoyed,
rather than endured.

Wrightspeed X1 vs. Lamborghini Gallardo and NASCAR
Filmed at Altamont Motorsports Park on Jan 23, 2007. Shows the Wrightspeed
X1 prototype electric car against a Gallardo (520hp, AWD) and a Nascar.
Standing start and a couple of laps. Lambo gets off the line well, but the
clutch smells really hot after just a few starts. NASCAR is not set up for
standing starts but goes well once it's up to speed. X1 is quite happy with
standing starts, it's not hard on the car at all. Max lateral g was 1.41,
on Hoosier A6 tires. Max speed was a little under 100mph. It's a half mile
