TESLA Model 3 vs BMW M3 Track Battle | Top Gear

  • Published on Apr 29, 2019
  • Four challenges - a drag race, 0-100-0, hot lap, drift off - a point for each, one overall winner. And it’s all because Elon posted a tweet last May claiming the Model 3 Performance would wipe the floor with the BMW M3 on track. Was he right?

    M3 lost 0/60 but its better 60/0 breaking. Never seen a standing start when running lap times. M3 would have a fast lap with rolling start. Plus m3 will not over heat after 2nd lap.

    This is what happens when you have someone who doesn’t know how to drive to race an AWD electric vs. a RWD M3. The Tesla has the advantage for inexperienced drivers because the dual motor setup controls power to the front and back to stabilize the car and maintain acceleration through turns. The M3, guaranteed, would win out if you use an experienced driver.
    Why’s there a TopGear logo on the top of this video? I didn’t see Jeremy Clarkson there. Just a tranny.

      Joe lol. It has good drag race performance. That’s it. It will be smoked in any type of driving condition that requires turning by an experienced driver in a bmw, benz, audi, porsche, etc. in another test against a similarly priced m3, it won the drag race, but lost the rolling start race, and also the break distance.
      These guys at “top gear (lol)” drive like a grandma. They have no business being behind the wheels of anything other than a toyota camry. And not the v6 version either.

    Driftability? So losing grip is an advantage?
    Tesla handles sliding better, so Tesla 4 - 0 BMW

    Telsa model 3 costs about $70,000 in Taiwan, but BMW M3 costs over $170,000....that's sad :(

    Estas comparaciones no dicen nada. Aceleración? Obviamente un EV puede humillar a un gasolina en una drag y dependiendo de la trazada, en el circuito también.
    Drift? Tesla es un pc muy pesado con 4 ruedas, no está diseñado para derrapar y puede resultar peligroso. El M3 sí es ligero y sin los sistemas de seguridad, puede derrapar con seguridad.
    Lo que sí sería interesante, es que tras una hora al máximo, sus baterías no estén como una lata de Coca-Cola bien agitada. Y extrapolar los consumos a términos monetarios.
    Con todo el respeto, el vídeo no me dice nada.

    One small detail about all these comparisons: they never mention how more laps Teslas can do keeping this pace. Sure, internal-combustion engines can make a few hundreds more while a Tesla being on its charging pit stop. In Formula E, they swap their "bolides" once a race.

    it is sad that the driver of Tesla does not know that in the test 0-100-0 time does not count, but the distance after which the car si | stops. this guy humbles himself, that's sad.

    When drifting you can always see what the real sports car is^^
    But the biggest problem with the tesla is that is has no soul.
    There is no sound, no emotion, hardly fun.
    Hands down, real racers and car lovers would always go for the M3...
