The next-generation Tesla Roadster will supposedly boast a range of some 621 miles or more, but it's not just its insane range that makes the electric supercar so impressive.
In fact, some would argue that its range figure takes a back seat to its insane level of performance. When first revealed, Tesla released these specs on the new Roadster:
- 7,376 pound-feet of torque
- 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, making it the quickest production car in the world.
- 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds
- Quarter mile in 8.8 seconds, which beats every other production car.
- 250+ mph top speed
- 620 miles of highway range

Now those are truly some impressive stats, but is the new Roadster fast enough to outpace a Ferrari Formula One race car? In the real world, probably not (though the Roadster does have a slight 0-60 MPH edge over an F1 car, which typically hits 60 in 2.1 to 2.7 seconds), but in the world of flash/CGI, anything is possible.
Watch this not-so-real race featuring the new Roadster against an F1 race car. We sure do hope to see a similar, but real, race with these cars in the near future when the Roadster becomes available.
