Tesla Roadster sprints from 0-60mph in just 1.9 seconds
This is the latest 2020 Tesla Roadster which is able to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and has an impressive 620-mile range.
Tesla’s Musk says that the new Tesla Roadster has a top speed greater than 250 mph, which would make it among the fastest road-legal cars ever built. Tesla says the Roadster is capable of running the quarter mile in just 8.8 seconds, which makes it faster than the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
The Roadster has one motor up front and two out back to give it all-wheel drive. Total torque output is an impressive and scary 7,375 pound-feet.
Unlike the first two-seat Roadster, the 2020 model is capable of seating four. The original Tesla Roadster, the brand’s first car which was built between 2008 and 2012 used a Lotus Elisa as it base car.
Tesla’s website is now taking reservations for this second-generation Roadster, due out for the 2020 model year. A reservation for a standard model runs USD50,000, while the Founders Series is a staggering USD250,000.
Tesla hasn’t detailed just what the Founders Series Roadster includes, though the company’s website says that it is limited to the first 1,000 reservations.
