If you’re familiar with the issues Jeremy Clarkson had after reviewing a Tesla Roadster many years ago on his previous show, you will probably appreciate the hilarious lengths at which he went to make sure everything he said about the Model X was accurate.
This might have been his funniest ever moment on The Grand Tour, ever since the Amazon Prime started streaming in November of 2016. And while this clip will give you a strong sense of that, you’re better off watching the whole episode in order to gauge his full reactions with regards to Tesla’s all-electric SUV.
To recap though, Clarkson was properly bewildered by what the Model X could do, both technically as well as on the software side of things, with all the modes and cool features. Naturally, he was shocked at how quick it was, which he proved by racing it in a straight line against an Audi R8 supercar.
In the end, the only thing that put him off about the Model X was its price tag, but that’s hardly Tesla’s fault since this car truly was (and still is) the first of its kind.
Last week’s episode also featured a comparison test between a Porsche Macan, Alfa Romeo Stelvio and a Range Rover Velar, and a head to head celebrity shoot-out between Rory Mcilroy and Paris Hilton.
