The car arrived in London on the penultimate leg of its remarkable, zero-emission journey around the world. The electrically-powered supercar is almost at the end of the record-breaking trip which forms part of TAG Heuer's 150th anniversary celebrations. After opening the Start Eco Car parade at Buckingham Palace on Sunday, the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster was driven by Sir Stirling Moss to Selfridges, to join the 300 guests hosted by TAG Heuer.
In the car with Sir Stirling Moss was Rupert Penry Jones. They drove the car into the party to the surprise of many celebrities, including Jack Heuer, Ed Hogg, George Lamb, Tom Hiddleston, Jason Isaacs, James Purefoy, Douglas Booth, Chris Barrie, Nick Knowles, Liz McClarnon, James Martin, James Murdoch, Rick Parfitt, Quentin Wilson, Alex Dellal, Jeremy Hackett, James Haskell, Kirsty Gallagher & Paul Sampson, Tamara Beckwith, Lisa Snowdon, Margot Stilley, Holly Valance, Tamara Ecclestone, Robert Llewellyn, Quentin Wilson, Jamie Morrison, Michele Gayle and Charlie Speed.
As Jack Heuer said in his speech "We are here to show you what we are made of" !
And we did.
Since setting-off from Geneva in January, the TAG Heuer Tesla has travelled to Basel, Monaco, Milan, Budapest, Warsaw, Moscow, Delhi, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Miami and New York - by far the longest journey ever made in an all-electric vehicle. Following London, the car will continue on to Paris for the closing event for a memorable night of celebration.
