Images From Pikes Peak: Drive eO Tesla Roadster
Sadly, we don’t see any video of Tesla Roadster 360 at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, but how about a photo gallery?
The Latvian car, called Tesla Roadster 360 or just PP02, is in fact a highly modified Tesla Roadster with Drive eO’s designed drivetrain and a 40 kWh battery pack. Two YASA motors provides 360 kW of power and 800 Nm of torque!
In the race, Tesla Roadster 360 was fifth in the Electric Modified Division and #97 from 130 participants. Despite all those kWs, the result isn’t overwhelming as a race prepared Honda Fit EV was two seconds faster than this Tesla (12:57.536 versus 12:55.591). Even a Zero S electric motorcycle posted a better time (#73 11:59.814).
Anyways, we are happy to have seen the only one team from Europe at Pikes Peak and hope that next year e0 will show us the full potential of its Roadster.
