TESLA Model 3 vs BMW M3 Track Battle | Top Gear

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? Subscribe to Top Gear for more videos:

    A Nother 4 days ago @ROBERT MCCREARY More weight too. Which is why the BMW stopped in a SHORTER distance than the Tesla. Which means later braking, hence more time spent on the throttle and less scrubbing off speed. If we assume their respective tyres offer the same physical level of grip, less weight means faster cornering compared to an equivalent, but heavier car. It also means the lighter car can transition and change direction more quickly. But there's a shed load of other factors too. Weight distribution, centre of gravity, suspension setup, brake bias etc. Not to mention the driver skill and track layout.
