Many times you have watched Tesla electric cars compete in straight with each type of supercars like for examble Ferrari comparisons are always in the forefront, with Video Shots of Model S and Model X against all kinds of Maranello appearances to pour oil into the fire. Now Americans can officially claim that electricity is faster than a Gas car, Italian V8.
The top version of the smaller Tesla, Model 3, is called Performance and delivers 451 bhp with 639 Nm of torque from two electric motors. The drive is transmitted to the rear and front wheels and can deliver spectacular shots, such as what we will watch in the short video released by the US company, but also an acceleration of 0-100 km/h to 3.3 seconds.
The essence beyond looks, however, is about the new Track Mode, which allows Model 3 to make a quicker lap on the Willow Springs circuit even from a 458 Italia! Track Mode allows instantaneous power management of 2 electric motors as well as the energy recovery system, optimizing traction and reducing braking distances.

For example, in the event of overturning, it can completely cut off the power supply from one electric motor by halving the load that results in the rear tires. Depending on braking, when the driver slows down at high speed, Track Mode maximizes energy recovery to help brake work, while reducing wear.
All of the above, in collaboration with a professional racing driver, a four-wheel Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 and a set of Brembo pads can make Model 3 Performance “turn” the 4km route to 1.21.49 at the moment which the Ferrari 458 Italia requires 1.22.30.
