Manhart surprise-reveals a power upgrade for the Tesla Model 3
Very few tuners worldwide feel confident enough to tinker around with all-electric powertrains, but Manhart caught us by surprise when it rolled out an upgrade program for the Tesla Model 3 Performance.
The dual-motor version of the U.S.-made performance sedan hits the wheels with 513 PS (506 hp / 377 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque. The tuner introduces a plug-in module called the MHTronik Powerbox to ramp these figures up to 550 PS (542 hp / 404 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft). Sprint times remain to be measured, but we suspect that even a minor bump in power output can make a noticeable difference in the heavy EV.
Elsewhere, Manhart offers a stylish fake grille for the Model 3 (if you are into that thing), an extended front bumper made of carbon, Barracuda forged wheels measuring 21 inches across, and a few other exterior mods. The cabin probably stays stock, but you can always ask for a bespoke makeover.
In Germany, the Manhart TM3 700 will set you back €74,900, a €20,000 bump over the stock Model 3 price.
