The best car (“coolest” might be a better translation) in Norway is the Tesla P85D according to a recent survey undertaken by the Norwegian company E24.
Tesla’s P85D managed to take a clear first place in the survey, capturing 19.9% of the vote (3221 votes), fairly far ahead of the next closest entrant — the Audi RS6, which captured 15.7% of the vote (2552 votes).
The win is particularly notable according to Tesla Motors Norway’s Chief of Delivery as the competetion included many models that are “the s**t fat.” (Which is apparently a compliment along the lines of “f***ing awesome.” Dritfete/s**tfat gets the “fat” in its name from the American expression “phat.” And “s**t” is used in a similar way to the way that the word “f***ing” is used in English to add emphasis to a statement.)
Here’s the quote (via a rough internet translation) from the Chief of Delivery Kjell-Arne Wold: “I thought really we should win by a large margin. When I saw the cars that were represented, I thought that this would be tough. Many of the other cars are the ‘s**t fat’.”
Other cars that did well in the recent survey from E24 include: the Mercedes AMG GTS (15.7%), the Ferrari 458 Speciale (10.3%), the Jaguar F-Type AWD 3.0 (8.6%), and the BMW X6M (7.2%).
