The head of Tesla Ilon Mask promised to make the new generation Roadster a sportster even faster. According to him, the model will have a sports package SpaceX (the so-called aerospace company Musk), which will improve the characteristics of the future machine. This is written by Sarscoops.
“What we presented earlier was only Roadster in the base modification. We will prepare for the car a set of options called SpaceX. It will be just insanity,” – Musk said. According to the top manager, the main task of the model is to overtake all the possible characteristics of gasoline sports cars, which many, according to Mask, still consider more impressive.
The new Tesla Roadster showed in November last year. The car received three electric motors, the maximum torque of which reaches 10,000 Nm, and a set of batteries with a capacity of 250 kilowatt-hours.
The company claims that the sports car can accelerate from zero to 96 kilometers per hour in 1.9 seconds, and 160 kilometers per hour the car will gain in 4.2 seconds. The maximum speed is 400 kilometers per hour. The estimated range of travel along the route will be about 992 kilometers.
In the series, the new roadster will not be launched before 2020. The car will cost about 200 thousand dollars. Now the company accepts pre-orders. Prepayment – 50 thousand dollars.
