Tesla Roadster Sport pictures released

Tesla Roadster Sport fq

The Tesla Roadster Sport has been unveiled and new pictures have just been released depicting what the Elise-based EV will look like when it goes on sale in the States later this year.

The Tesla Roadster Sport is an upgrade package over the stock version that includes a new hand-wound stator that increases torque, resulting in a claimed 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds — 0.2 seconds faster than the standard model. Adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars are fitted underneath and a set of Yokohama Advan A048s (the same tyres used on the Lotus Elise/Exige) are wrapped around dark finish Tesla wheels. Tesla includes unique “sport” badging to the Roadster and pricing has been set at $128,500 ($230,000 NZ) in the U.S.
