PALO ALTO, Calif. – Tesla has launched a new $5,500 ‘Model 3 Track Package’, which is a new hardware package for Model 3 Performance vehicles with new wheels, brakes and more.
We already knew that the package was coming after Tesla leaked it in the parts catalog last year, but now it’s official.
Tesla listed the package on its Website and describes it:
“Optimize the track performance of your Performance Upgrade Model 3. Track Package is a complete hardware package designed to give you maximum cornering force, braking performance and high-speed stability for the best lap times.”
The automaker says that it includes “track-focused brake fluid, high-performance brake pads and 20″ Zero-G Performance Wheels.”
Here’s the full list of everything you get for the $5,500 (including installation):
- 4 x 20″ X 9″ Zero-G Performance wheels
- 4 x Tesla logo center caps
- 20 x Lug nut covers
- 4 x 245/35ZR20 XL Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires
- 4 x tire pressure sensors
- 1 x front and rear high-performance brake pads
- 1 x track-focused brake fluid
Tesla notes that the “high-performance wheels and tires may affect your range” and by “may” they mean definitely trust me.
The automaker also notes that this package is “only compatible with Model 3 Performance Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive with the Performance Upgrade” and they expect shipments to begin in April.
While we have to wait a while to get the package, we don’t have to wait to see it in action since Tesla invited some Youtubers to test it out: https://youtu.be/WXNKlIy2UxI
