I just posted this video on youtube for youtube users to see, after noticing it not being posted here after so long; the video belongs to Tesla Roadster @ Facebook (don't sue me Siry, I'll take it down if requested).
Sorry about the video & sound quality, that's how it came, probably camera phone footage.
