German tuning studio Manhart is mostly known for its tasteful modifications to various BMW models. For years, the tuning specialists have taken BMW vehicles and have enhanced their looks, as well as performance. In more recent times, the company has started branching out and we’ve seen their work on cars like the Lamborghini Urus and Land Rover Discovery. Apparently, they’ve decided that the Tesla Model 3 could use a grille, despite being an EV, and the results are interesting to say the least.

Yes, they really did put a grille on an EV
It’s called the TM3 720 and Manhart has chosen a strange way to enhance its appearance

Manhart’s project is based on the Tesla Model 3 Performance, which comes with 513 horsepower (382 kilowatts) and 471 pound-feet (639 Nm) from the factory. However, Manhart claims that its TM3 720 puts out 542 horsepower (404 kilowatts) 531 pound-feet (720 Nm).

As for the aesthetics, Manhart has given the Model 3 a new, more aggressive body kit. Of course, the main highlight is the big fake grille, which is actually painted onto the front of the car. Its sole function is to make the car look more interesting, but I’ll let you be the judge.

Other than that, the car has been finished in black (we don’t know if it’s the factory paint or not) and given the usual touches to make it look sportier. Black 21-inch “Barracuda” wheels, red exterior accents, a racing stripe, and a new front splitter, which combined with the “grille”, makes the TM3 720 look even meaner.

The people at Manhart have also added H&R lowering springs, to help the chassis cope with the extra power. Sadly, they haven’t touched the rear nor the interior of the Tesla Model 3. In case you are wondering, the price for all this is €74,900 ($88,255 at current exchange rates), car included of course. What’s your take on that grille?

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
