The next-generation Tesla Roadster electric hypercar, which actually has seating for four, will boast a claimed range of some 621 miles or more, but it's not just its insane range that makes the electric Tesla so darn 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 other-wordly stats, but is the new Roadster fast enough to outpace a jet-engined Formula One race car? In the real world (does a jet-engined F1 car even exist in reality?), probably not (though the Roadster does have the quickest 0-60 MPH time of any production car), but in the world of flash/CGI, anything is possible, including an F1 car that spews flames.

Watch this not-so-real race featuring the new Roadster against a the jet-engined F1 race car. Perhaps soon we will see a Roadster race a real jet? Or maybe we'd rather watch the real Roadster take down anything and everything that is thrown its way.
