Literally Electrifying! The Tesla Roadster is fast. Clarkson soon finds this out when he goes up against a Lotus Elise. The Stig gets his hands on this electrifying vehicle around the test course to see what it can really do. With only one gear and a top speed of 125 it does not seem all that stunning. But, don’t count your eggs too short yet, the Tesla Roadster will do 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. How does it do this? Electric motors have torque my friend… lots of it and it is instant!
I won’t take up any more of your time because I want you to watch this video below after the jump of the Tesla Roadster tested on Top Gear.
