Basically, Tesla Motors showed us a semi-truck yesterday. And this.
As an all-electric supercar, The Tesla Roadster maximizes the potential of aerodynamic engineering—with record-setting performance and efficiency – giving would-be drivers one of the most impressive spec sheets in the automotive world today. Let this sink in: the Tesla Roadster will sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 1.9 seconds. If you continue to 100mph (160km/h), you’ll need only 4.2 seconds. A 1/4 time of 8.8 seconds won’t leave anybody unimpressed. Top speed? Over 250mph (400km/h). All that for “just” $250,000 – if you order today.
The Tesla Roadster features a lightweight, removable Glass Roof that stores in the trunk for an open-air, convertible driving experience. It also comes with a futuristic steering wheel, some infotainment and some other things like seats, roof, fenders and other, not relevant shit.
Clearly, with an acceleration time from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) of just 1.8 seconds, do you really care? Didn’t think so.
According to official Tesla data, the Roadster will go on about 600 miles (over 900 kilometers) with a single charge. It features seating for four people, all-wheel drive, interesting looks and fear that it will bring into the hearts of every supercar competitor out there. Naturally, more information is coming in the forthcoming weeks. Meanwhile, grab a look at the Tesla Roadster images right below.
