Silver machine

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 29 November 2011 in Transportation and Portfolio.

A Tesla Roadster - fast and whisper quiet. One of the new breed of cars on display this spring at the Canberra Electric Vehicle Festival. You can see a red Tesla from last year's festival in this shot.

Looks like a true racing car.
I like the man "rushing" to the car and also the b&w processing.

An electric roadster simply brilliant - I wonder if F1 will ever be electrified?

Hybrid or totally electric? Nicely framed., the movement of the person as dynamic as the car:)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Certainly looks the part, wonder how far it will go in between charges?

29 Nov 2011 1:34pm

@Curly: Thanks, Curly. 300 miles on the one charge for the Roadster.

franz from Baden, Austria

superb image, wonderful angle, very appealing treatment! i was going to ask the same question as curly - 300 miles on one charge isn't too bad, actually! now i wonder how long it might take to re-charge the batteries, though ... probably a lot longer than just "filling her up"!

Is this the machine better than a Ferrari, stephen? Hmmm....thought it may have been a Lamborghini as we were at Auto Italia! But, this is not bad-looking and would entice all the men, that's for sure! The B+W treatment suits. :OD
