Tesla Roadster can can go from 0-60 miles/hour ( 0 to 100 km/hr) in 1.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 250 miles per hour ( 400 km/h ). This extraordinary car can travel up to 620 miles on one charge. Tesla Roadster even features a removable glass roof and has 4 comfy seats. Chief executive Elon Musk even stated that he wants to 'give a hardcore smackdown' to gasoline vehicles.

The crowd sitting in the presentation at the airport in Los Angeles were potential truck buyers and Tesla car owners according to Tesla. But the crowd was oblivious to the revelation of Tesla Roadster. The presentation was for company's other big reveal, an electric truck named Tesla Semi. The crowd sat there, clapping on the first sight of Tesla Semi oblivious to the fact that what was inside the trailer of the truck. When a shiny red roadster emerged from the trailer of the company's other big reveal, It left the jaws of the crowd hanging with a question in their mind " what's happening ? ".

Moreover, the revelation of this car made it the fastest production car ever including both electric and non-electric vehicles, beating the Chinese-made NIO EP9 all-electric hypercar which has a top speed of 194 miles per hour equivalent to 310 kilometer per hour and the incredible, record breaking Bugatti Chiron, released this year which is just 0.4 seconds slower than Tesla Roadster to reach 0-60 miles per hour, therefore, losing the title of being the fastest car. Bugatti Chiron manages the distance in 2.3 seconds and the main cause behind it is the combustion engines which cannot produce immediate torque, while electric engines have the ability to do so.

Powering the Roadster is a 200 kilowatt hour battery pack to which Musk stated during the presentation "You´ll be able to travel from LA to San Francisco, and back, at highway speed without recharging,' . The Roadster has three motors, one in the front and two in the rear with all-wheel drive and torque steering. Later Musk added 'Driving a gasoline sports car is going to feel like a steam engine with a side of quiche' when emphasizing the power of his brand new wonder car.

Tesla's first Roadster was released in 2008 but later the firm stopped the production of the car due to the low demand. This Tesla Roadster is the updated version of Tesla's first production vehicle. The company is spending over 1 billion dollar for the next model of this car and is planning of setting a factory in China to produce some more breath taking cars according to The Daily Mail.

Coming back to the point, Tesla Roadster comes at a low cost in lights of its High-Tech and things it is capable of doing. The first 1000 of the new Roadster will cost $250,000 equivalent to 190,000 pounds each with later models starting at $200,000 equivalent to 150,000 pounds. But unfortunately, no matter how high the hype of buying this incredible car is, it won't be released in the market until 2020.

We do not know if this is the end. But what we know is that there are more to surprises to come from Musk and Tesla Motors in the future. Moreover, this Tesla Roadster might set some new records for Tesla Motors and for others too... Who knows.
