The Tesla Roadster is on its way not only to becoming a classic but a technological work of art that’s set to distinguish it from other sports car competitors.

Not only is the automobile classically beautiful, but it’s also surprisingly fast for an electric vehicle. Tesla recently teased the next generation Tesla Roadster via a video which showed the car rev from zero to 60 mph in approximately less than two seconds.

But apart from these, the car is also rumored to have some out-of-this-world technological innovations that will set the vehicle as a benchmark for the most innovative vehicles in the market today.

According to Teslarati, the next generation Roadster could be using a fingerprint swipe technology to open the car instead of the usual handlebar. The feature was captured via a video from one of the attendees of Tesla’s Autonomy Day held early this week. Hamid Shojaee, who made the video, showed a finger swipe at the bottom of the B pillar just by the edge of the Roadster’s door.

Aside from this, there’s also a distinct horizontal LED light that can be seen blinking which seems to be the indicator if the fingerprint will work. Apart from what was revealed in the video, there are were no other details given but the post pretty much gave a glimpse of how hi-tech Tesla’s next sports car seems to be.

The video showed that the electric vehicle company is most likely doing away with the Bluetooth connection or key fob that’s considered a “signature” among Tesla cars. The key fob is present among models such as the Model S, Model X, and Model 3.

The feature seems truly plausible because Tesla owners already have their biometrics stored in their smartphones which can be set using the Tesla app. Apart from this, the advantage of a fingerprint entry is more apparent in the sports car because it can eventually contribute to the car’s overall performance.

First, the absence of a door handle could maximize the airflow inside the vehicle. It can also significantly reduce the coefficient drag of the sports car which could eventually help it run faster in the long run.

We’re still waiting for other amazing features to eventually reveal itself before the official 2020 release but so far the Roadster impresses in other aspects such as its 620 miles of battery range and a top speed capability of 250 mph.
