Car prizes are nothing in the Price Is Right, but for this particular episode, host Drew Carey had something special in store for Rhett, a young college student from Salt Lake City, Utah.

Calling it the most expensive prize they’ve ever given out on the show - it’s valued at $112,000 - Carey gave Rhett every reason to do what college kids do best these days - go crazy and jump up and down on-stage - by giving him a chance to win a Tesla Roadster.

The good news is, Rhett just about passed out on stage when he saw the car, a probable sign that he knew a thing or two about the roadster. As for the bad news, Rhett didn’t go home with the car, but he probably became an instant celebrity in his campus for his on-stage reaction to seeing the Roadster.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

YES, the tesla is an over price car it’s price is 20% more than the GT-R. But it’s perfromance didn’t even reach the 50% of the GT-R.
