Jeremy Clarkson famously gave the Tesla Roadster some undeserved bad publicity a few years ago. Tesla then sued Top Gear/BBC for libel and eventually dropped the suit. There is no love lost between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson however as evidenced by his comments earlier this week (above).
With that in mind, commercials are showing that Top Gear USA will be reviewing the Tesla Model S this week. Will it get a fair shake?
