When you think of supercars currently on the market names like Bugatti, Porsche, Ferarri or Lamborghini instantly come to mind. Well, today luxury electric car manufacturer Tesla is coming for the crown with the surprise introduction of their Tesla Roadster.

Bugatti who?

With the specs this bad boy is boasting, chances are very high you will be seeing this environmentally safe supercar in your favorite rapper’s garage and music videos.

Announced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the Tesla Roadster is coming out the gates roaring with some amazing specs. Top speeds on the new roadster top out at 250+ MPH, can go 0-60 in an astounding 1.9 seconds and has a range of 620 miles.

WOW…

Keep in mind this car doesn’t need gasoline because of its huge 200kWh battery pack and still pulls off those speeds and sets performance records while seating four people.

To put into perspective just how insane the new Tesla Roadster is, there is no car on the production market yet that can do what this car promises it can.

Now as far as price as concerned, the Roadster will cost you a smooth $200,000 starting with a $50,000 reservation. Sounds about right for a car that’s pretty much been the car all speed enthusiast have dreamed about.

Not to be forgotten, Musk also introduced his new line of electric semi trucks which look like something straight out of a Transformer movie or iRobot.
