Buying a car can be daunting but YouTuber EvgeniTalks has a piece of advice for anyone looking to purchase a new motor in 2020 – he reckons you should invest in the 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance, and here’s why.

EvgeniTalks is an up and coming online reviewer who regularly showcases new cars on his YouTube channel, and he rates the 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance highly.

The impressive sedan is just one installment of the manufacturer’s electric, eco-friendly range and is priced at $56,990 – when purchased directly from Tesla. While they were first put into production in mid-2017, the stylish automobile has been given a refresh for the new year.

The price of the latest Model 3, in general, depends on the spec of the vehicle you have in mind, but it’s worth noting that it’s available in both rear-wheel and dual-motor all-wheel drive. The Tesla Model 3 Performance reviewed by EvgeniTalks, though, is top of the range.

The YouTuber posted a comprehensive video on December 30, breaking down a number of different reasons as to why people should be looking at the Performance model – which is one of the hottest selling set of wheels on the market.

As we mentioned earlier, this is a revamped version of the Model 3, and EvgeniTalks was super impressed by the changes. He said: “I think they’re really starting to become higher quality, as the fit and finish in this car is actually way better than my previous Model 3. I had a dual-motor, non Performance car before.

“It’s getting a lot better, even the doors when you open and close them, they don’t make that rattle like they do in the old one. That’s crazy.” He didn’t stop there, either, delving into some more of the specifics for both the interior and exterior of the sedan. So, let’s take a look at the best bits.


Tesla Model 3 Performance – Best bits

So, there are a few interesting facts about the Tesla Model 3 Performance model. The car itself can travel from 0-60mph in an impressive 3.2 seconds, with a cracking 473bhp.

“A three-second to 60 in a car that cost $56,990 is very impressive to me,” the reviewer stated, before describing the power of the engine as “monstrous”. Not a bad impression for a car at this price point.

Plus, cool features in the ‘Performance’ package includes a carbon fiber spoiler, red brake calipers, bigger brakes, as well as sport and track mode.

Tesla also predicts, according to their website’s price calculator, that buyers will save themselves $6,300 due to not only gas savings but potential incentives for driving a carbon-neutral vehicle as well.

So, it might not be as expensive as the initial price looked after all, and certainly nowhere near as outlandish as Tesla’s upcoming Cybertruck.

Petrolheads around the world will recognize the name Jeremy Clarkson. Once part of BBC’s Top Gear and now the host of the legendary Amazon Prime show The Grand Tour alongside May and Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson naturally owns quite a sizable car collection, along with a few surprises.

Jeremy Clarkson will go down in history as one of the biggest personalities that any car-based TV show will ever be linked to. Naturally, his years at the helm of various car shows, along with his history in journalism, has led him to owning an impressive collection of cars.

It’s not just cars in Jeremy’s garage, though. Having taken on his farm during 2019, he also owns a number of unusual machines, including a rather strange Lamborghini. Here are our highlights from Clarkson’s incredible collection.

Jeremy Clarkson’s supercars

Of course, Clarkson has a number of performance cars and supercars in his car collection. One of the most famous cars in his collection was the Ford GT, which he actually sent back to Ford after a well-documented issue with the alarm.

He also has a well-known love affair with AMG’s products. His first was an SL55 AMG roadster, though it wasn’t to be his last. Clarkson has also owned a number of other AMG-badged cars, including a CLK63 Black Series.

Given his history around supercars, Clarkson has owned more than most people would ever dream of having. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Ferrari 355 GTS
  • Mercedes-Benz AMG SL55 AMG Roadster
  • Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK63 Black Series
  • Aston Martin Virage
  • Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
  • McLaren 675LT
  • Ford GT
  • Lotus Elise 111S

Classic Cars in Jeremy Clarkson’s collection

It’s not just the latest-and-greatest cars that are in Jeremy’s collection. There are also a number of classic cars in his fleet, including one of the most iconic BMWs ever made, as well as some vehicles from his time on Top Gear and The Grand Tour.

The most unusual car in Clarkson’s collection is undoubtedly ‘The Excellent.’ Created as part of a challenge on The Grand Tour, it is a lifted Mercedes SL convertible mated to a Land Rover chassis.

Alongside ‘The Excellent’ he also owns the gorgeous Alfa Romeo GTV6 that featured on the Scottish special episode during Season 2. He even knew that he’d own it after filming, saying during the show “generally when we finish these jobs these cars end up, I don’t know where. But I know where this will end up; At my house.”

The most iconic classic in Clarkson’s collection is the BMW 3.0 CSL.

Finally, the standout car from the collection is one of the most iconic BMW’s ever designed – the 3.0l CSL. Nicknamed ‘the Batmobile’ due to its massive rear wing, the CSL is the first true performance BMW, and is an appreciating classic.

While he doesn’t own all of them anymore, the full list of classics that Jeremy is known to own is impressive:

  • BMW 3.0l CSL
  • Alfa Romeo GTV6
  • Mercedes SL ‘The Excellent’
  • Ford Escort Cosworth RS
  • Mercedes-Benz 600 Grosser Limousine
  • VW Golf GTI
  • VW Scirocco

The weirdest car in Clarkson’s collection

While his crazy Grand Tour creations are certainly odd, most people wouldn’t expect Clarkson to own a certain Lamborghini. In this case, it’s a tractor for use on his farm – how very un-clarkson!
