    Tesla are suing Top Gear and Clarkson for lying and faking filming on a piece they did about their cars! Turns out Top Gear is even more faked then I ever thought -

    I think I grew out of Clarkson a few years ago... he's just annoying now.

    "Tesla say never happened".

    "[On having broken brakes and overheated motors] Both apparently not true".

    It's just one word against another; obviously Tesla won't want a popular show like TG to make their car look bad. Nothing will come of it I doubt.

    Agreed or very little in any case.

    Isn't it a bit strange that tesla are now only starting to sue when the episode was broadcast in December 2008 - over 2 years ago? :lolwut:

    Did you not read the part where it says Tesla were trying to contact Top Gear about this issue, but to no avail. And therefore, reverted to Legal action...

    If you're going to comment upon an article, you have to read every page, every word.

    Don't really care, top gear is so staged now it's just cringe worthy, the only 'funny' bits have always been the things that aren't staged.

    Teslas are crap anyway, let them waste their money on litigation, it won't help their end of year financials.

    Top Gear is pretty staged but it's still very funny sometimes. Just more hit and miss. Still damn good telly.

    Americans are over-litigious. Nothing much will come of this. Very hard to prove anything - and at any rate, much of Clarkson's feedback on the car was good.
