Elon Musk Takes His Latest Creation Down The Strip

As always this ride is brought to you Elon's favorite personality Bloomberg's Betty Liu.  (Who doesn't remember when Betty convinced the Tesla boss to make an impromptu visit to an Acura dealership in Santa Monica?)

Just as a quick recap on the car :

  • 0-60 in 3.2 seconds
  • 1/4 mile  in 11.8 second
  • power:  691 hp, and 687 lb-ft of torque
  • range: 275 miles
  • cost from $120,170
All the specs, range, and debut info from Tesla's launch event (no pun intended) in Hawthorne, CA can be found here)

Separately, Mr. Musk talked to Liu about the legal implications behind something like the auto pilot feature.
