German tuning company gives the Tesla Model 3 Performance a much more aggressive look
The drivetrains of modern electric cars are known to be extremely sophisticated systems that even some of the most competent tuners do not necessarily want to tinker with. Although this makes performance-focused tuning almost impossible, popular EVs like the Tesla Model 3 can still be customized with certain aftermarket parts that can bring some visual changes to one of the best-selling EVs on the planet.
This is exactly what the Germany-based tuning company Manhart Performance has done, as it has given the aforementioned Tesla Model 3 some really neat exterior upgrades. The electric sedan with the name “Manhart TM3 510” is largely based on the Tesla Model 3 Performance, which still has around 500 horsepower and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just over three seconds. However, the EV has been equipped with sport springs made by H&R that cost around US$400 and lower the car by 30mm in the front and rear, which will certainly pay dividends in terms of handling.
Manhart has also produced an athletic-looking carbon front spoiler for the Tesla Model 3 Performance, which is available from US$1,600 at the tuning company’s official online shop. In addition, the custom 21-inch rims called “Manhart Barracuda” are probably the most significant upgrade in this tuning kit, and they come in a beautiful Platinum Gray color and cost around US$4,300. The exterior overhaul is rounded off with an exclusive decal set that for example adds a fake grille to the front bumper of the Tesla Model 3. The result is a much sportier looking electric car that should be quite an eye-catcher compared to the rather tame stock Tesla Model 3 Performance.
