Tesla has unveiled a new Roadster, the latest iteration of its original sports car. It’s the fastest production car ever made, according to Elon Musk, with speeds of just 1.9 seconds for 0 to 60 4.2 seconds for 0 to 100. It can blaze through a quarter mile in 8.9 seconds.
“This is the base model,” Musk said during the unveiling. He went on to reveal that its top speed is above 250 mph. and it has a 200 kWh battery pack that offers 630 miles of highway driving range.
The Roadster is also a 2 by 2 seater. It will be made available in 2020 with a starting price of $200,000, with the first 1,000 sold being Founder’s Series models that will retail for $250,000 apiece. Which, many believe, is a steal for the fastest production car ever.
The design is a homage to classic sports cars but with patent Tesla ultra-modern undertones.
