Tesla Roadster

I was at Greenfest last weekend, and took these photos for a couple of friends who are Tesla Roadster enthusiasts - in contrast to my other friend who saw "Tesla Roadster" on the Greenfest programme and thought it was a band!

So there you go. The perfect car for someone who might normally buy a Ferarri, but doesn't want the massive emissions. Meanwhile, according to the Tesla website it does 0-60mph(about 100kph) in 3.9 seconds, with a range of around 350km - all on electric power.

Of course, we know that electric motors are highly energy efficient (i calculate about 4c/km for the Roadster) but i still find it ironic to advertise a car's low running costs, when the car itself sells for $US 100-grand.
