TESLA Model 3 vs BMW M3 Track Battle | Top Gear

  • Loading...
  • Published on:  Monday, April 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?

    First : in long Top Gear tradition you should know that 0-100-0 are mesured in distance.
    Second : lap times are mesured doing a flying lap.
    Third : your Driving skills are not good enough to get a proper lap time in any of those cars, you where miles from any racing line.
    Fourth : that's not drifting at all. That a bit of powersliding at best.
    This content is not good enough to bear the name of Top Gear.

    Seriously? "Driftibility" as one of the points??? Top Gear has lost it completely

    Not really a proper test, driver has a huge impact on this result. Put Chris Harris in the cars, and then ill believe the outcome. oh and since when is 0-100-0 not measured by distance

    I stopped watching Top Gear after Clarkson and the gang left. Curious I watched this. Looks like I have not been missing anything.

    Well, driving skills aside, but the attempts at drifting were laughable.

    Did anyone else feel he wasn’t really giving full effort with the lap time in the BMW? And I’m really not a BMW fanatic.

    A Drift Score??? Are you kidding me? That is the most idiotic thing I've seen in a long time. You folks need to give your head a shake!

    To the people of (this) TopGear. Please stop. Stop embarrassing yourselves. It's pathetic. I'm sure you have other talents so, try exploring those...
    (Disclaimer: I own a Tesla and love it. My gripe is with this "test" and the downfall of TopGear overall. It hurts my Petrolhead heart)
