Tesla?s Roadster World Tour visited Nikola Tesla?s resting place

A round-the-world tour by a Tesla Roadster will wind through southeastern Europe this week, the most historically significant leg of the 23,000 mile journey. On April 13, the car arrived in Budapest, where Nikola Tesla came up with the design for his revolutionary AC induction motor in 1882, during a feverish hallucination along the banks of the Danube River. The Tesla Roadster ? the only electric car for sale in Europe or North America ? uses an AC induction motor descended from the scientist?s original vision. Tesla Motors unveiled the Roadster in 2006, which UNESCO declared the Year of Nikola Tesla in celebration of the 150th anniversary of his birth.
