Can the Model 3 beat this tuned Bimmer?
The Tesla Model 3 Performance is seriously fast, so much so that it blows away most cars that it meets at the strip. However, we don't even see a Tesla pitted against a heavily tuned diesel BMW.
The BMW, a modified 535d E60 diesel, supposedly packs some 400 bhp. And since diesels are known mostly for torque, we'd guess that figure is somewhere north of 600 pound-feet.
Though down on both brake horsepower and torque compared to the tuned Bimmer, the Tesla Model 3 Performance, with its instant electric torque and all-wheel-drive traction, simply crushes the soot-spewing BMW.
It's not like these results are new to us or unexpected. Tesla drag racing domination became a thing back when the Model S launched. However, it wasn't expected that the Model 3 would be so dominant too. It is though.
