Tesla Sues BBC For Libel Claiming Top Gear Rigged Tests, BBC “will be vigorously defending”
Top Gear fans? Remember the episode from a few years back where the crew tried to flog the Tesla Roadster ? Yeah, it didn't end so well for the Tesla after Clarkson first praising the little electric supercar. The entire segment is embedded for your viewing enjoyment after the jump, but the skinny is that the Top Gear testers sort of died prematurely -- a few times. The first car's battery's ran out only after 55 miles. Then another car's motor overheated. When they went back to the original car, something was up with the brakes. So yeah, one of the most watched TV programs in the entire world didn't exactly portray the Tesla Roadster favorably. Enter the libel lawsuit.
