Of course, this is just a computer simulation of the race, but even in real life, the new version of the American electric roadster is simply insane. But will this electric vehicle have enough capacity to compete on an equal basis with a Formula 1 race car?

The next-generation electric Tesla Roadster hypercar boasts a stated power reserve of about 1,000 km, the presence of four full-fledged seats, as well as a very powerful motor that provides an electric car with an incredibly fast acceleration.

During the first demonstration of the new generation Tesla Roadster, company representatives announced the following characteristics of their new product. The electric power plant can develop 10,000 Nm of torque, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes just 1.9 seconds, which makes it the fastest production car in the world. Overcoming 402 meters will take 8.8 seconds, which again surpasses the results of all other serial machines. Maximum speed over 402 km / h.

Well, these are very impressive characteristics, but are they enough for the new generation of the American roadster to get ahead of the Formula 1 racing car with a jet engine? In the real world, apparently not.

Although at the moment there is no F1 car with a jet engine. But in the virtual world such a race turned out to be possible, there is even a F1 jet car there that spews a huge pillar of flames from the exhaust pipe.

Check out this not-so-real race with the new Tesla Roadster and the F1 racing car with a jet engine. Maybe soon we will see an electric Roadster race and a real airplane? We have to admit that Tesla engineers managed to build a really fast car!
