Woman Caught On Camera Keying Tesla In Car Park

Woman Caught On Camera Keying Tesla In Car Park

A woman has been caught on camera 'keying' the side of a Tesla.

Video footage has been posted online showing the unnamed driver walking beside the parked motor at Westfield Shopping Centre, Sydney, Australia.

In the short clip posted by the car's owner Darren Pearce, the culprit can be seen walking towards the front of the vehicle, scratching its panel as she does so.

His post read: "Just got home from Penrith Westfield shopping centre when I realised my car had been keyed.

"Luckily it was all caught on sentry mode, it shows this lady keying my car clear as day. Please share so we can find this scumbag. Any info please DM me!"

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mr Pearce said it took him a few minutes to realise that the whole thing had been caught on his car's camera.

He said: "I think all nice cars are at risk of being vandalised, probably all cars in general really, it's just that if you vandalise a Tesla you're going to get filmed."

The post quickly gained traction, with more than 4,000 comments and 18,000 shares.

Woman Fell From Car On M25 While 'Filming Video For Snapchat'

According to reports, the culprit has already been identified and information has been passed onto New South Wales Police for further investigation.

Maybe Mr Pearce should invest in Tesla's Cybertruck, which promised to be unscratchable.

Back in November 2019, the big launch didn't exactly go according to plan, particularly when he asked Tesla design chief Franz von Holshausen to try and break one of the windows.

The unveiling took place in California and saw Musk telling the assembled audience: "You want a truck that's really tough, not fake tough. You want a truck you can take a sledgehammer to, a truck that won't scratch, doesn't dent."

Franz ended up breaking two windows with a steel ball - whoops - but Musk told the audience that the test wasn't a complete failure.

"It didn't go through," he said.

"A little room for improvement. Alright, let's see... so yeah... we threw wrenches, we threw everything - we even literally threw the kitchen sink at the glass and it didn't break. For some weird reason it broke now, I don't know why. We'll fix it in post."

But despite the setback, Musk backed his product, and was even spotted driving his own Cybertruck around Los Angeles earlier this year.

In footage shared online, Musk can be seen at the wheel of his all-electric Tesla truck, giving the girls filming him a little wave before he speeds off. Well, got to give the fans something, haven't you? Especially when you're driving your own company's distinctive new vehicle around town.
