Do you remember that last year in November when Tesla CEO Elon Musk was talking about the Tesla Roadster 2020 he promised a mind-numbing power with surprise reveal of the all-new next-generation Tesla Roadster. Is it too good to-be-true?
Then Musk said that the Roadster 2020 will go from 0-60 mph in under two seconds and max out at over 250 mph. It will launch from 0-60 seconds in 1.9 seconds and 0-100 mph in 4.2 sec. Our Denis Flierl write in that article (mentioned above) that if this is all true, it will be the first time any car has broken 0-60 in under 2 seconds.
We don't know about the exact specs of the Tesla Roadster 2020, but in this video, which was just revealed on April 27, the car was spotted at Tesla's Race Track in Fremont area and gives one of the best looks at the new Roadster racing.
If wish the guy who did the video held his camera horizontally. It's a cool video though.
Roadster takes of like a rocket.
"If Musk can pull this off, Tesla will be the second U.S. company aiming to produce the world’s fastest production car. Hennessy Performance, located in Texas, just unveiled the Venom F5 supercar at SEMA 2017 in Vegas last week. But the Venom F5 is powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE) pumping out 1,600 horsepower," concludes Denis Flierl of Torque News, in the article referenced above.
