Top Gear Test of The Tesla Electric Sports Car
Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson reviews the Tesla Electric car as only Top Gear can. The Tesla is an electric sports car based on the Lotus Elise that is powered by 6831 batteries, does 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds and is claimed to be capable of 200 miles. Clarkson describes it as a astonishing technical achievement, but somehow lacks the practicality to be used in the real world.
Tope Gear's tame racing driver, The Stig takes the Tesla for a lap around their test track, where it is found to be as fast as a Porsche 911 GT3.
