    Tesla sues Top Gear

    Well after Clarkson bad mouthing the Tesla Roadster 2 years ago they have gotten a little upset.

    Info here -> http://www.teslamotors.com/teslavstopgear

    If a car company sued them everytime Clarkson opened his mouth then every manufacturer would have them in court. Opel especially Click here to enlarge

    Sure, we dont have to worry about viking raids or scurvy anymore, but instead we make a daily routine of sitting in flimsy, fibreglass (or metal) boxes full of gasoline which are propelled in opposing directions on the freeway at velocities matching that of low flying aircraft.

    This is a roundabout way of saying that cars are dangerous....

    ... but then again Tesla comes from a country where sueing is just a normal day event. Maybe they can put the case in front of Judge Judy .......
    Shit...... Australian government should jump on the ban wagon and sue the BBC for the shit they put on us when the review the VXR8

    Funny read though.

    Tesla's main gripe seems to be that they purposely understated the range. HOWEVER, even in their claimant transcript, clarkson clearly says "RACING around our track, it will only do 55 miles". Thats hardly normal driving conditions. As for over heating. Once again, being raced, extra strain on the motors, going to over heat. This shit will get thrown out of court as soon as it gets to one.
