Tesla Roadster Brabus – grab a driveMon, 08 Jun 2009 00:00:00 -0700
Pop along to MotorExpo in London this week and grab a drive in a Brabus Tesla Roadster
And if you don’t mind a bit of a queue you’re in with a chance of doing what Boris Johnson did earlier this year – test drive the Tesla Roadster. Not only that, but you’ll go one better and get a go in the Brabus version.
Tesla have turned up at the MotorExpo on a bit of a roll. They have had some stick (from us amongst others, I must confess) about the pie-in-the-sky projections for the Tesla Model S. But things are starting to slot in place for the makers of the world’s first proper electric sports car. Tesla recently signed a deal with Mercedes, which will give them some much needed big company clout, cash and kudos, and they’ve also just delivered the 500th Tesla Roadster to a customer in New York.
And their presence in London is no surprise as they are about to open a raft (well, a handful) of dealerships in Europe to handle sales and servicing of the Tesla Roadster when it makes its debut here this Summer.
Tesla haven’t dished out too many cars to journalists, and they obviously don’t consider Cars UK to be important enough to offer a drive to, so we may even send someone along to have a play. After all, it’s a little unfair for us to judge and criticise something we haven’t driven (it won’t change our basic stance, but it may be half-decent to drive). Not that it’s stopped us in the past!
If we do, we’ll let you know.
