Tesla Roadster Sport 2009 offers you more performance and exclusivity

With the Roadster sports auto production ramping up, now Tesla Motors announced its plans on offering a more strong version of the electric 2-seater model. Called Roadster Sport, EV is promising 15 % more peak power even than the standard unit, with improved handling and rare paint job having carbon accents.

Roadster Sport makes the 0 - 60 mph in only 3.7 seconds — if you compare it to the 3.9 seconds for the basic edition. So, it's in the same league with some exotic sports vehicles. “This car can beat nearly anything in its price class – yet it is twice as efficient as compact hybrid sedans,” said Michael van der Sande, the senior vice president in global sales, service, marketing for Tesla. “If you refuse to compromise on performance or the environment, the Roadster Sport is your only option.”

The Roadster Sport begins at 128,500 Dollars in America and 112,000 Euros (excluding VAT) on the European territory. Deliveries starts in June. Tesla delivered over 150 unit of the original Roadster to buyers, and around 1,100 people - on the list of waiting. Clients who have not taken delivery now may switch the order to Roadster Sport.

“The Roadster Sport embodies Tesla’s spirit of continuous improvement,” said Elon Musk - CEO, Chairman and Product Architect. “The Roadster has been a great success, but no one at this company remains satisfied with the status quo.”
