We haven’t heard that much about the second creation Roadster ever since Tesla first previewed it approximately one and a half years ago, but Elon Musk made an interesting comment on Twitter about it last week.
The outspoken Tesla CEO was asked if the freedom of the Roadster is “still going to be 620 miles (998 km)”, to which he reacted the “range will probably be above 1,000 km”. That’s over 621 miles, whereas the initial estimate was up to 620 miles (998 km), in ideal conditions, of course, and without abusing the throttle.
That type of range is extremely impressive, particularly considering the new Roadster’s performance, which falls in authentic hypercar territory. Naught to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) will take a mind-blowing 1.9 seconds, and 0-100 mph (0-162 km/h) a barely believable 4.2 seconds. It will also operate the quarter-mile in 8.8 seconds, while Top speed will exceed 250 mph (402 km/h). The organization ’s test driver admitted that the final car is going to be even faster (!) , thus bringing on the heat like Bugatti and Koenigsegg.
The new Roadster won’t be cheap, but considering its hypercar-beating functionality, it’s really a bargain. The base model is expected to begin from $200,000 and the Founder Series, which will be limited to 1,000 units, should be 50,000 more expensive in the United States. Reports speak about a possible price increase of around 10 percent or a little bit more when it finally goes on sale, which is still hugely less expensive compared to multi-million machines it competes with.
