Tesla Motors doesn't have a dealership in Las Vegas but if you are really interested a sales rep will drive from California to hand deliver a test vehicle.

Just inches away from the Ferrari dealership at the Wynn Hotel Casino we found a stunning blue Tesla Roadster Sport. From afar the Roadster looks like the 1800cc Toyota powered Lotus.

The Roadster frames are made in the UK by Lotus but nearly everything else on the car is designed to be as light as possible. Here we see that the trunk lid is made from extremely light carbon fiber just like the rest of the body panels.

The batteries are kept in the back under a cover but you still have enough room for a set of golf clubs or two.

With 20K as a down payment and a government subsidy of 7,500 Dollars you too can have your own piece of electric vehicle bliss for only 1,700 a month for 5 years.
