In a recent post on Bill Gates’ blog, he spent some time chatting with the author of one of his new favorite books while cruising around in a gorgeous blue Tesla Model X! The two spent the day chatting about the book, getting some burgers, and showing off the Model X on a beautiful Seattle day! They recorded the whole thing on a VR camera too which makes for a fairly entertaining viewing experience. We don’t know if this is Bills Model X, but we know he loves technologically advanced cars (and obviously technology in general), so we wouldn’t be surprised if he picked one up.
Jaden Smith is just the second celebrity we’ve spotted now with Tesla’s new Model X. Jaden’s older brother Trey, shared a photo of Jaden posing in front of his new Tesla after he picked it up this past week. According to his caption, this is the first car for the seventeen year old which means he may be one of the few celebrity kids that didn’t get a car for his 16th birthday?!
The Tesla P90D is fast. Zero-60 in 2.8 seconds fast. And like you’d expect, this speed comes with a price tag and it’s not cheap. In the video below, Jay Leno talks Tesla and wether or not he thinks the $120,000 price tag is worth it.
Tune in to Jay Leno’s new show, “Jay Leno’s Garage” tonight, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CNBC.
