Our colleague Noah will surely be saddened by this news and might want to avert his eyes now. An alert AutoblogGreen reader tipped off ABG the other night to some videos on YouTube of a Tesla Roadster street racing with a Ferrari F430, '63 Corvette, Mercedes-Benz SLR and a bike. After checking with Tesla, it turned that it was shot on a closed course while Microsoft was filming a commercial for the upcoming Project Gotham Racing 4 which will be featuring all those vehicles.

A visit to the YouTube account shows there are two more clips of the Ferrari alone. In these, the F430 drifts a bit too wide out of the corner and taps the concrete barrier with the left front corner. Fortunately, it didn't hit very hard and it doesn't appear much damage was done, although it will undoubtedly still be a very expensive day. Slabs of concrete are so much less forgiving than gravel pits! According to Tesla VP Darryl Siry, the finished commercial should appear on the old fashioned tube in mid-August with the game to follow from Microsoft in September. The Ferrari videos are after the jump and the rest showing all the cars are over at ABG.
