The way i see it, the 750li should have been ahead as it had much better torque very earlier on and i would caught up later a bit but I would still be behind by the 1/4 mile.
With the E500, things should be more even and a good driver could be ahead. The Youtube video shows a very bad start and is not a meaningful comparison IMO
