Indeed, the Roadster will be much faster than originally thought. Initially announced as the fastest production car with a top speed of around 400km/h and a 0-100 acceleration time of 1.9 seconds, Elon Musk revealed that the 0-100 will now be achieved in 1.1 seconds thanks to a SpaceX rocket booster, positioned at the rear of the car:

 

“With the optional SpaceX rocket booster package. It will be safe, but very intense. Probably not wise for those with health issues, like roller coasters,” he said on Twitter, in response to a user.

Elon Musk also said that the Roadster will have a range of 998 kilometres thanks to an engine in the front and two others that will power all four wheels.

 

As for its base price, it is expected to start at $200,000 (€172,000) for the standard version, while the Founders Series version, limited to 1,000 units, will cost $250,000 (€215,000). Expect to pay around $50,000 if you want to reserve your model.
