Tesla Roadster Test Drive
One beautiful December day we went for a test drive on the much talked
about, super fast electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster. We also
interviewed Tesla in their showroom and assembly area.
It was an amazing experience and I hope that car companies will make
electric cars the standard fleet coming out of their factories.

2014 Tesla Model S Performance (416hp) - 0-180 km/h acceleration (1080p)
Amazing autobahn acceleration test with the super innovative TESLA Model S
as the range topping P85 Performance Model featuring 416 hp and 600 Nm from
an all-electric drivetrain. I honestly have to say, that I have NOT driven
anything like this before. The power is so instant that it takes your
breath. No other car in the world can deliver such performance and instant
pull without spinning the rear-wheel tires. Yes, accelleraction feels like
you were driving an all-wheel-drive car that weighs nothing;-) Besides that
amazing punch, the rest of the car is just as good and driving around in
town is a sheer pleasure. I don't really know if the video can transport
this astonishment, but I am definately looking forward to your LIKES and
COMMENTS. And please SUBSCRIBE to Automann-TV, weekly car drives, for FREE!
AWESOME tesla roadster "LOUD" acceleration ;)
I spot this STUNNING tesla roadster in my town of sandwich on Cape Cod. I
absolutely love the blue with black wheels color combo. the owner was
really cool, and said that he has another one just like this, except with a
grey interior instead of tan. It was so creepy when he accelerated fast
away, there was NO sound, which i dont know if i like. anyway....amazing
car none the less. remember to rate, comment, and subscribe for more exotic

Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #42: Tesla Model S Problems
Sure, the electric Tesla Model S is the top-scoring car in Consumer Reports
ratings, and their owners love them. But over 15,000 miles of driving, the
Model S we bought has had more than a few problems. We talk about those
issues, public reaction, and what it all means. Next we discuss another
electric car, the BMW i3. It's unlike any BMW you've ever seen. Bringing
things back to more "normal" cars, we introduce our 2015 Subaru Outback
test car. Subaru's been listening, because they fixed a lot of the
shortcomings in previous Outbacks. Finally, we answer whether a first-time
new car buyer should get an Outback and plan ahead for kids.
Test Ride in 2011 Tesla Roadster 2.5
I had the chance to get a ride in the new Tesla Roadster 2.5, and I decided
to take a video of the entire thing. The Tesla representative explains the
It is extremely fast, and the regeneration that happens when you lift your
foot off the accelerator works really well, and can definitely slow you
down well enough so that you don't have to use physical brakes most of the

2014 Tesla Model S vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550! - Head 2 Head Ep. 54
On this episode of Head 2 Head, the newest luxury heavyweight takes on the
reigning champ. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has ruled the luxury roost since
it created the segment decades ago. However, Elon Musk's revolutionary
Tesla Model S has single handedly disrupted the established luxury paradigm
and has recently outsold the mighty S-Class. What's most amazing is that
the Model S doesn't use a drop of gas. The S-Class does, but it rewrites
the luxury car playbook in other ways. So which $125K big lux whip is best?
Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Pagani Huayra brutal acceleration!
www.jaykaybi.com - I am a very lucky boy. Below is my in-car video of
the Zonda PS for comparison. They're very different cars, and I know the
Huayra isn't quite as wild to listen to but it's not trying to be a Zonda.
Don't think of it as the Zonda replacement. The Huayra is James Bond to
the Zonda's Bruce Lee - they both have their place, and I can see why many
Huayra owners will be keeping their Zondas.
