YouTube channel 7zerex focuses mostly on high displacement and noisy engines, but this week, they take a different turn. In their latest video, a Tesla Model 3 takes on a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Judging by the video footage, the GT500 also seems to be slightly modified, along with sporting some slick tires.
There is also no info on the Tesla Model 3, so it’s unclear whether this is the Performance version or the standard one.
Despite having all the torque available at 0 RPM, the Tesla Model 3 gets a serious competitor in the Mustang. The GT500 is still one of the fastest Fords ever, powered by a supercharged V8 engine that’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
It makes 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque. It also comes with a race-inspired chassis and suspension. The GT500 carries a starting price of about $74,000. It’ll rocket you from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and tackle a quarter-mile run in under 11 seconds.
The Tesla Model 3 Performance is quite quick as well. The official 0 to 60 mph time is rated at 3.2 seconds and the quarter mile at 11.1 seconds.
Based on these numbers, these two cars seem very evenly matched, but let’s take a look at the video below.
