If you are rich and concerned about the environment, this might be the sports car to buy?
Today, it was parked just outside the main entrance to the ONS conference centre.
Anyway, it is a Tesla Roadster bought by bellona.org and Frederic Hauge. (The man with the big smile and curly hair in the middle of the photo.)
The car goes from zero to one hundred in 3,9 seconds, and has a top speed of 210 mph. It runs on electricity, and will make around 360 km before it needs to be charged again....

Neat motor; also love the head dress and costume in your last post.

One of my flickr contacts drives one of these. Cool ride.

I don't think that this car should come in any color other than RED! How cute (and fast)!

Your alien friends in blue from yesterday's post were pretty funny!

À bientôt!

Fast cars, especially in red, can't fail to impress. Nice shot.

That's a cool toy and a nice way to honor Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest minds of the last century. But I'm not rich and neither obsessed with environment...

My guess is that «Louis La Vache» will love this photo even though it is not a Packard. Still, it is a cool looking car.

making electric cars cool is definitley a move in the right direction. Until now they've been a bit ugly.

They are fantastic cars. The only problem is once I got in, I couldn't get out.

This could be an option for me, especially since it's a convertible! :)

You have red in your photo today too! :). I live those Teslas! I sat in one recently at a car show. It's tight squeeze! Definitely a form fitting car!

I remember reading a review teaser about this car a while back. Very impressive figures, but also I think a lot of money to but too.
