Introducing the Roadster Sport from Tesla Motors

Going 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds flat is the Roadster Sport from Tesla Motors. This baby is a high-performance sports car based on the world’s leading all-electric, zero-emission vehicle. It comes with a hand-wound stator and an increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque. Boasting of improved suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars that will be tuned to the driver’s preference, the car also features Yokohama’s Ultra High-Performance tires. Roadster Sport is the first derivative of Tesla’s proprietary, patented powertrain. Get a load of this; more than 150 Roadsters have been delivered, but the 1,100 people are on the waiting list may opt for the Roadster Sport instead!

Tesla plans to begin producing the all-electric, zero-emission Model S five-passenger sedan in 2011. Roadster Sport starts at $128,500 in the US.
