In this edition of Tesla Eye Candy, we've uncovered some of the Hollywood crowd that's pretty smitten with the new Tesla Model X. It appears the initial wave of "Signature" Model X deliveries seem to be wrapping up as production ramps. And even though we've seen "Signature" customers who've posted video reviews of the new Tesla SUV, it appears that some of those early customers also happen to be associated with show biz. We've got some amazing photos of the Model X in our curated Instagram gallery including one of hollywood superstar Will Smith's son, Jaden, probably the first 17 year old to receive delivery of the Tesla Model X (bottom photo). And we've also got an account of how to use Model X autopilot spoken by the same voice who "plays" Bart Simpson on The Simpsons. Scroll down below to check it out...
For this week's video, Transport Evolved reports that Nancy Cartwright, hollywood actor and voice of Bart Simpson on The Simpsons, made a short video about the Tesla Model X and its autopilot functionality while recently driving north along the Hollywood Freeway. This is the first (known) video demo of Autopilot in a Model X and Cartwright expresses her admiration for the Tesla CEO, “Elon Musk is a genius. I’m so blown away by what this guy has done... How lucky am I?” In the next video, she shows off the doors. And, it turns out you can hear Cartwright and Musk together, as the Tesla CEO made a special guest appearance on The Simpsons where he starred in "The Musk Who Fell to Earth" episode. We've also included a clip from that episode (last) too just for fun...
We've seen many famous folks throw their support behind Tesla Motors and I'm sure we'll be seeing more Model X owners who you may be familiar with -- we'll be sure to keep you posted. In any event, what we've showcased in our Tesla Eye Candy series is just a sampling of the great stuff we've come across on Instagram and Youtube.
