And poof...it's gone.
The next-generation Tesla Roadster is so insanely quick that you blink and it's gone.
The new Roadster officially can hit 60 MPH in just 1.9 seconds (watch that blistering acceleration here). This imaginary video attempts to recreate the Roadster's sheer speed. As the Roadster slowly rolls by, you can see it's not the real deal. A few moments later, the accelerator is smashed down and the Roadster disappears in a flash.
