After starting off in Barcelona, a few months back, Rafael de Mestre and his Tesla Roadster arrived in the Spanish city yet again, only this time after having traveled around the entire world, in order to do so.

While the majority of the trip may have gone smoothly, the Dutchman did suffer a massive setback, just 600 miles (1,000 km) away from his destination, when he crashed into the back of another car, on a German autobahn.

Thankfully, his car was repaired in record time, and he was back on track, despite losing all hope in actually finishing. Well, now, the trip is over, and de Mestre is back in Barcelona, where it all started. The feat was achieved last weekend, and he was greeted by a ‘welcoming committee’, as well as many EV advocates and regular bystanders.

However, this success has only spurred de Mestre on, and he is bent on braking even more EV records. We wish him the best of luck in all his future EV-related endeavors!
