The next-generation Tesla Roadster electric hypercar, which actually has seating for four, will boast a claimed range of some 621 miles or more, but it’s not just its insane range that makes the electric Tesla so darn impressive.
- 7,376 pound-feet of torque
- 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, making it the quickest production car in the world.
- 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds
- Quarter mile in 8.8 seconds, which beats every other production car.
- 250+ mph top speed
- 620 miles of highway range
Now those are truly some other-wordly stats, but is the new Roadster fast enough to outpace a jet-engined Formula One race car? In the real world (does a jet-engined F1 car even exist in reality?), probably not (though the Roadster does have the quickest 0-60 MPH time of any production car), but in the world of flash/CGI, anything is possible, including an F1 car that spews flames.
Watch this not-so-real race featuring the new Roadster against a the jet-engined F1 race car. Perhaps soon we will see a Roadster race a real jet? Or maybe we’d rather watch the real Roadster take down anything and everything that is thrown its way.
