Watch A Tesla Model 3 Race A Ferrari And Lamborghini In Italy

Italians racing Italian supercars against an American EV.

Italian YouTuber Giovanni Fois doesn’t normally make car videos. By looking at his previous videos, he really seems to like food a lot. The above video is completely in Italian, so I had a hard time following sometimes but since it’s a drag race video, a lot of it was self-explanatory (YouTube translate helped a little). What’s humorous is the fact that the drag race was done on a track at a safe driving center in Italy. 

The three contenders are the Ferrari Portofino (612 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque), the Lamborghini Huracan Evo (630 hp and 442 lb-ft), and the Tesla Model 3 Performance (about 450 hp). In the video, Giovanni says the 0-100 km (0-62 mph) time for the Portofino is 3.5 seconds, 3.3 seconds for the Model 3, and 2.9 for the Huracan Evo. 

The Ferrari Portofino didn’t have much of a chance. It’s quick and has plenty of power, but it’s a GT roadster and is Ferrari’s entry-level model. That’s why it losses both the race with the Model 3 and Lamborghini. To be fair, it left the line a little late against the Model 3 twice. 

The Model 3 didn’t have much of a chance against the Huracan Evo because that supercar practically accelerates like an EV. When Motor Trend tested it, it hit 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. Still, the Model 3 performed well. The first race was an even launch and the Model 3 loses. But in the second one, the Model 3 got the jump. The EV was ahead for a bit but the Huracan Evo caught up and rocketed by for the win. 

At one point in the video, the interior of the Model 3 is shown with an aftermarket digital instrument cluster seen below. Some owners purchase those due to the Model 3’s lack of a driver’s display behind the steering wheel.
