Tesla Roadster SpaceX with rocket boosters showed on the renderJune 18, 2018
Most recently, as part of the Tesla shareholders meeting, it became known that the second generation of the roadster will receive a unique package. So, Tesla Roadster will receive a unique package of SpaceX, adding several rocket engines to the car.
It is worth noting that initially Elon Musk (the founder and head of the company Tesla) did not specify the details of the charged version of the electric car. Just a week after the announcement of the possible appearance of an extreme version of the Tesla Roadster SpaceX, new details appeared. So, in the official tweet of Elon Musk, a post appeared that SpaceX for the new Tesla Roadster will include ~ 10 small rocket engines located along the perimeter of the car.
“These rocket engines greatly improve acceleration, maximum speed, braking and turning. Maybe they will even let Tesla fly … ” – said Elon Musk in the message.
Naturally, the head of the company joked about the possibility of flying a new roadster. However, no one joked about missile accelerators. So, the tuning studio T Sportline, which calls itself the world’s first tuner Tesla, presented a render of the future version.
As you can see in the picture, the tuners decided not to place rocket engines around the perimeter of the car, placing about five pieces under the rear bumper. Thus, the additional power will go exclusively to the dynamics of overclocking.
It is also worth noting that the most incredible announcements of Elon Musk, one way or another, are embodied in life. It’s about the technology of using compressed air to create powerful impulses. It is noted that the technology is called Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessel, COPV. It is also used in SpaceX spacecraft.
Elon Musk said that air pumps and other necessary equipment for work and COPV-engines take up a lot of space, so the Tesla Roadster SpaceX Edition will be a two-seater. By the way, air engines will be placed behind the front row of seats instead of the seats of the second row.
In the meantime, the founder and head of Tesla company shows in practice its confidence in the success of the company. Elon Musk again bought a large block of shares worth about $ 25 million.
