Watch the Tesla Roadster do 0 to 60 in 1.1 seconds!

Simply impressive

Electric cars have completely redistributed the cards in the world of hypercars. Despite the absence of engine noise and partly muffled driving sensations, they offer instantaneous torque, allowing them to catapult their occupants at every acceleration.

This is the case of the future Tesla Roadster, which promises to outrun any other production vehicle on the first few meters. Indeed, with a theoretical 0-60 time of 1.9 seconds, the car is intimidating. It's hard to even imagine how this would be possible.

And yet, competitors are already showing up, with the Aspark Owl, for example, claiming a 0-60 time of 1.65 seconds. Not enough to impress Elon Musk, who has promised to equip the Roadster with Space X rockets. Thus equipped, the American sports car would then do 0-60 in...1.1 seconds.

To get an idea of such acceleration, a Twitter user virtually modeled the performance. The result is indeed breathtaking. But Tesla still have to find tires capable of handling such accelerations and adapt the Roadster's aerodynamics to prevent a probable takeoff.

  • It would suck to be behind one at a traffic light

  • The grip on that roadster must be incredible, just getting that much power to the ground to create that acceleration is astonishing.

  • To be honest I still don’t get the attraction to that, bet it feels awful when you’re in the car and you have no satisfaction of listening to an engine and changing gears
