There are NO words to describe this machine. But we will try anyway.
My chana, luister hier Omfowethu.
Yoh, yoh, yoh!
This man Elon Musk, Tshwane-born, don't play no games. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the new Tesla Roadster, or should we say Tesla does! Certainly, the fact that it has 3 electric motors and a 200kWh battery pack literally means nothing to us. For all I know, that's the size of my razor.
Apparently though, it's not.
So, as you digest the next 5 points, consider the fact that the Tesla Roadster also has a 1000km driving range, which is a number that is stand-alone impressive until you read the next 5 points.
Take a breath.
0-100km/h in 1.9 seconds - the fastest accelerating car in the world!
0-160km/h in 4.2 seconds - that's faster than a BMW M4 gets to 100km/h!
402km/h - top speed!
8.9 seconds quarter mile. The fastest production car in the world over that distance.
10,000 Nm of torque - that's ten times more wheel-turning power than the top-of-the-range Ford Ranger.
Ma'gents and my ladies. The font is even bigger for this one last and outrageous fact.
That's just the base model...
