The next-generation Tesla Roadster is a beast. Maybe beast is even an understatement.

Not only will it supposedly boast a range of some 621 miles or more, but it's so darn quick from 0 to 60 MPH that few, if any, cars will ever be able to match it.

With a 0-60 MPH time of under 2 seconds, even most full-bore race cars can't keep pace with the new Roadster.

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 out-of-this-world specs, but can the new Roadster beat the Nissan GT-R Nismo? In the real world, the answer is yes. The Nissan GT-R Nismo hits 60 MPH from a standstill in around 3 seconds, which is very slow compared to the Roadster. It has 600 HP, but just 481 pound-feet of torque. However, in the world of flash/CGI, anything is possible.

Watch this not-so-real race featuring the new Roadster against the mighty Nissan GT-R. We sire are geeked to see the Roadster do some real-world takedowns when it launches in the near future.
