    Over on the Tesla Motors forum it mentions that Elon + Talulah Riley will be at the event to hand over cars to the first 5 owners. Anyone here?

    Not sure if I am going or not - its great for the first 5 owners but cant help think I will be somewhat envious.

    I was in contact with Tesla a few weeks ago and I was told that if you are registered on Tesla database then you would get an invite - I have had nothing yet so maybe my info was wrong

    I'm in their database twice - once as a pre-order enquiry and (under a different email address) when I placed my order.

    I normally get everything in duplicate, but I only got one copy of the 'save the date' email - to my 'owner' email address.

    OTOH, that's hardly an invite as such - it doesn't say where or what time. Maybe the actual invites will be sent out more widely.

    Does anybody know where this event is going to take place in the UK? Do you need an invite as I'm not a Tesla owner (yet)?

    "London" is what Elon said at yesterday's AGM, but nothing more specific than that.

    The invites are out, apparently to owners only; you won't get in without one, though some of the action apparently takes place "outside". It's at "the crystal" in Royal Victora Docks. Maybe a plea to [email protected] might get you one?

    Note that from the following monday they are exhibiting and holding test drives round the corner at Canary Wharf (Canada Sq).

    Tesla FB page has a photo from 2hours ago, seems Elon is doing the rounds with BBC etc, wonder if any of the first 5 owners are on these pages or has anyone found anything else about this?

    Just been to event, brilliant afternoon, Elon presented the keys to the first five, unfortunately I'm the 6th tomorrow morning at ten. Looking forward to the drive home.

    Nice, anyone famous in that first 5 as promised last year (Richard Branson etc was mentioned) just curious.

    Good luck with tomorrow, hopefully your car or the first 20 or so have some form of something extra to mark them out as the first ones for the UK market.
