With their new products, Tesla manufacturers not only surprise the real car enthusiasts, but also surprise even those people for whom cars have never been an interesting topic at all. This time, Tesla is announcing that their new model will be faster than Formula 1 cars. The acceleration of the Tesla Roadster will be so strong that some people are not even advised to try it. In fact, this electric car can be too dangerous for some ordinary drivers as special abilities and knowledge might be needed to deal with such an amazing speed.
Feels Like Driving in Roller Coaster
If you ever have been visiting an amusement park, you might notice that some of the fastest roller coasters have warnings about the high intensity and great speed. They are not recommended for those who have heart health problems or epilepsy. But even if you are perfectly healthy, the lightning-fast acceleration of the Tesla Roadster might just be too much to handle for you. The same can be sad about most drivers around the world because the model of Tesla is very fast that it should be driven by professional drivers only.
The acceleration of the F1 cars is highly dependent on the road surface, temperature, and even the position at the starting line. For example, the first drivers to arrive at the start line stand longer waiting for others to line up, meanwhile their tires are getting cooler, and this could cost a victory. In addition, the reaction of the driver is also a very important factor but sometimes even at this level of professionalism errors can occur. Formula 1 cars often run up to 100 km/ h for about 2-2.5 seconds. Sometimes, if all goes well and the environmental conditions are very good, a Formula 1 car can reach 100 km/ h in less than 2 seconds.
However, Formula 1 cars are not the fastest cars by this indicator. Top-level autocross cars run up to 100 km / h in less than 2 seconds. Meanwhile, top-of-the-line traction racing cars accelerate to 160 km/ h in less than a second. They use special tires, and their shape is not similar to any other car.
Tesla Aims to Lead
In fact, ordinary cars would hardly be able to match such numbers. The main reason is tires. Even the most powerful cars have difficulties approaching the 2-second mark because the tires do not guarantee the needed grip. Porsche 918 Spyder up to 100 km / h are reaching in 2.2 seconds and this is one of the best results demonstrated by non-sports cars.
However, the Tesla Roadster will run up to 100 km/ h in about 1.2-1.3 seconds That is why it will be subject to recommendations as in an amusement park, as the Tesla Roadster will have SpaceX rocket engines. Most likely it will be compressed air cannons. The Tesla Roadster will have a 200-kWh next-generation battery that can cover 1000 km between charges. That energy will be used by three engines that will rotate both axles of the car. Without the help of the SpaceX package, the Roadster will reach 100 km/ h in about 2-2.1 seconds. The maximum speed might be about 400 km/ h. Elon Musk said that the Roadster, which will cost only USD200, 000, will become the fastest car in the world. The mass production should begin next year.
