Electric vehicle and classic cars enthusiasts recently got excited with Tesla’s latest video release showcasing the next-generation Roadster.

The beautiful automobile was shown doing a jaw-dropping 0-60 mph acceleration in approximately 1.9 seconds, a feature cheekily described “Zero to sixty faster than you can read this caption.” The acceleration was said to be so fast that the company actually challenged Twitter users to read the post in less than 1.9 seconds.

The video amped interest on this latest Tesla “classic.” The new car’s fascia sports a classic sports car silhouette and presented in a sexy shade of red to impress speed enthusiasts. But more than the looks, the next-gen Roadster impresses more in specs.

First, it can accelerate and reach speeds of up to 250 mph at top speed. Even with all that power, battery life is impressive as it can reach 620 miles of battery range. The car will also be an all-wheel-drive vehicle with 10,000 Nm of wheel torque.  And even with its classic sports car status, the Roadster can fit a party of four with a price tag of $200,000.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently announced that all Tesla cars will have autonomous driving capabilities which mean that the new Roadster will not only sport impressive driving power but ease behind the wheel as well.

According to a report, the next-gen Roadster is described as a “hardcore smackdown” compared to its gasoline counterparts. However, some sport car experts believe that it’s not all coming up roses for the Tesla Roadster.

According to the chief technical executives of Ferrari and Lamborghini, there is lack of accelerating power compared to the variants of classic brands. There could also be problems on battery placement and since the Roadster is an electric car, the usual “growl” associated with most supercars is also lacking to complete the sportscar experience.

Despite this, some reports are already placing the Tesla Roadster among collectible vehicles. Some companies are saying that the vehicle’s aesthetics combined with its contribution in its respective vehicle segment makes it one of the more valuable cars in the market today.

The next-gen Roadster is expected to be released in 2020.
