The Tesla Roadster will tackle the Nürburgring in 2021
New record in sight?
The second-generation Tesla Roadster was officially presented on November 16, 2017, at the same time as the Tesla Semi. Since then, the arrival of the vehicle has been delayed to 2022, as the brand must first develop in Europe and above all prepare for the arrival of the much awaited Model Y.
The brand must also juggle with the Cybertruck, again awaited by fans. Given that the expectation is even higher for the Roadster, Tesla must not leave the development of the vehicle on hold. As a result, Elon Musk has stated on Twitter that the supercar will arrive at the Nürburgring as early as next year.
Considering the vehicle's breathtaking performances announced three years ago, it is highly likely that the Roadster will set an excellent lap time on the Green Hell. It will surely do better than the future Model S Plaid which is currently fine-tuning its development on the famous track.
As a reminder, the second generation Tesla Roadster will have three electric motors developing more than 1000 hp and 10,000 Nm of torque. These simply impressive figures make it possible to do 0-60 in 1.9 s and reach a top speed of 250 mph (400 kph).
