The previous drag races of the Audi RS6 were against a Model S that smoked it. This time, they used a slightly slower, Model 3:

Using the Model 3 instead of a Model S, Audi is getting a little "Tesla tense." But I'm seeing a pattern of UK and EU races that appear to be poorly instrumented, like this one, and not really a fair contest. Must be 'diesel ethics.'

Tesla Model 3 AWD w. Performance Boost vs.
Modified Honda Civic that would have won if the driver hadn't missed second gear. ;)

1/4 mile in 11.822s at 117.19 mph.

That's almost as fast as a Performance Model 3. :)

A Tesla Model 3 Performance has humbled a Ferrari Portofino on the 2.36 mile Autodromo di Modena track in Italy. The two vehicles’ acceleration and speed were compared through a drag race and a timed lap comparison, and braking ability was measured through a 100 km/h to 0 km/h test.

The Model 3 is owned by Italian car enthusiast Matteo Valenza, who has pegged his all-electric vehicle up against some of the most impressive performance cars in the world. To make the tests as even and as fair as possible, both vehicles utilized Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

The $57,990 Deep Blue Metallic Tesla Model 3 costs about a quarter of the $215,000 Red Ferrari Portofino. The Model 3 Performance packs a Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive powertrain, significantly different from the 3.9L Twin-Turbocharged Rear-Wheel Drive setup of its Italian counterpart.

Following are the results of the two vehicles’ track test.
  • Tesla Model 3 Performance: 1:13.424
  • Ferrari Portofino: 1:17.162
