    It uses 6,831 laptop batteries?

    That seems reasonable.

    Besides the anti-cyclist comments, the author obviously hasn't seen Top Gear's review of the Tesler - and the fact that hard driving can deplete the batteries after two hours of driving (and require about 16 hours to charge up).

    I wonder when he'll learn about this battery life issue. Probably immidiately after pissing off a small group of riders. Something tells me he won't have 16 hours of free time to make his getaway from a group of highly irate "lycra clad buttocks" heading straight towards him.

    Maybe he'll need a bicycle.

    I'd like to drive a lorry full of hooligans and ruffians right up his driveway, and knock his dustbins over.

    As I recall from a TV interview, the car cost like a half million US dollars.
    Seems from the article, the price is down to $130,000 or so.

    Send the thread to P&R. Stop unsing A&S like a trash can for these threads!

    I'll admit that I didn't read the whole article, probably about half of it. But he does seem to have a problem with cyclists, doesn't he?

    Probably is, under an alias.

    This fellow needs a refresher as to the result of Top Gear's Race Across London:

    1st place: Richard Hammond, Specialized Sirrus,
    2nd place: Jeremy Clarkson, speedboat,
    3rd place: The Stig, public transportation,
    4th place: James May, Mercedes GL.

    After reading that, I don't have to stretch my imagination far to figure out why he's always having run-ins with cyclists.

    Yeah, no.

    James Martin is most famous for being a so called "celebrity chef", appearing on cookery based game shows.

    Also, the Daily Mail is a horrible newspaper who's readership probably agree with every word he wrote.

    God help him if a cyclist is ever a contender. Can you say "mincemeat?"
