A new video shared by Drag Times shows the Bugatti Divo facing off against a Tesla Model S Plaid in a series of 1/4-mile drag and roll races.

The video’s host, Brooks Weisblat, headed to Dubai to race using a private drag strip rental at Yas Marina Drag Way. On the way into the drag strip, he was greeted by Bu Mayood of the Super Cars Majilis group.

While the Bugatti Divo has 1,500 hp, the Tesla Model S Plaid has just around 1,000 hp, as Weisblat points out in the video.

In addition to the Bugatti and Tesla, the Model S Plaid also faces off against a Ferrari Fiorano SF90.

Although you can see the Model S Plaid’s strong acceleration in the first race, it doesn’t take long before the Bugatti lunges past the electric vehicle (EV). Still, the Bugatti seems to have lost the first race by just a rare margin within the first quarter-mile.

In the video’s description, Weisblat notes that the Bugatti Divo has a $10 million price tag and was imported into Dubai from the U.S. Comparatively, the Tesla Model S starts at $135,990, at least for those in the U.S.

Weisblat recently took on the $3.6 million Bugatti Chiron with the Tesla Model S Plaid, though the results of the drag race series were quite different than in this race.

Later in the video, Weisblat hops behind the driver’s seat of the Bugatti Divo, landing a 4.60-second for the 60-130mph range and a 4.42-second from the 100-150mph range.

Overall in the 1/4 mile, the Divo ran at 9.2 seconds setting an unofficial world record for an ICE production vehicle, while the Model S Plaid ran 9.4 seconds. Tesla has yet to unlock the full top speed of the Model S Plaid.
