On the 17th of November 2017, Elon Musk(Chief Executive of electric car maker Tesla) unveiled a surprise vehicle called the Tesla Roadster.
This vehicle is the fastest production car ever to be made as it goes from 0-60MPH(Zero to Sixty Miles Per Hour) in a whooping 1.9 seconds meanwhile the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV also know as the fastest Lamborghini ever made does 0-60 in 2.8 seconds for a price of $530,000. The Bugatti Chiron also accomplishes this feat in 2.5 seconds for a whooping $3,000,000. Other cars such as the Porsche 918 Spyder also achieves this in 2.5 seconds for a price of $845,000 and the Laferrari which also achieves this in 2.4 seconds. The Laferrari was last known to auction for about $7,000,000 which makes it the most expensive car in the 21st Century. The Tesla Roadster is quicker and cheaper than any of these cars. It costs $200,000 which is less than half of any of its competitors.
The automobile does not run on fuel as it is fully electric therefore it might not be available everywhere in the world but it is certainly a car for the future as it will be as it will be produced in 2020. To pre-order the Tesla Roadster, an initial deposit of $50,000 is required for the base model while the Founder’s Series of the vehicle will cost you $250,000 which must be paid upfront.
The creation of this vehicle has sparked a bit of controversy in the car industry and will definitely revolutionize it; hopefully for the better.
