Tesla Model S Engulfed In Flames During Worst Test Drive Ever

Tesla sure knows how to do a test drive! Bring some hot dogs, marshmallows and beer to kick the party off right (please make sure the car has come to a complete stop and fully engulfed in flames before consuming any alcohol)! All joking aside, as fast as that thing went up, they should be thankful no one was hurt.

The fire yesterday happened during a test drive in the south of France, with the test driver, his girlfriend, and a Tesla employee in the car. "We were going about 70 km/h (43 mph) on the Boulevard d’Aritxague in Bayonne, we heard a loud noise inside the car," he told local newspaper Sud-Ouest (our translation). "The [Tesla employee] told me to pull over. She wanted to call Tesla before continuing the test drive. The car was in flames within a minute," he told a reporter, and "destroyed within five minutes."
