The upcoming Tesla Roadster is unmatched in terms of performance
When first revealed, Tesla released these insane 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
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, road-capable 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.
Enter a Top Fuel dragster. Certainly, the Roadster can't keep pace with this sort of HP machine on a real drag strip, but this here video isn't real.
Fun facts on Top Fuel dragsters:
Top Fuel dragsters are the quickest accelerating racing cars in the world and the fastest sanctioned category of drag racers, with the fastest competitors reaching speeds of 335 miles per hour and finishing the 1,000 foot runs in 3.64 seconds
Watch this race video featuring the new Tesla Roadster pitted against a proper (albeit equally as fake as the Roadster in this simulation) top fuel dragster. It's road car versus a proper drag strip champ.
