Elon Musk: the Tesla Roadster will fly at the Nürburgring in 2021
It could be the big car sensation of 2022. Although Tesla promised it for 2020, the pandemic delayed the American company's plans. It has been almost three years since Elon Musk presented the prototype of what will be the second generation of the Tesla Roadster. According to the company's CEO, if all goes well, the first deliveries will happen in 2022. However, we won't need to wait so long to see it in action because, in 2021, the Tesla Roadster will fly at the Nürburgring.
This bolide goes from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 2 seconds and promised an autonomy for 1000 km.
According to the positive response of Elon Musk himself, who took charge of doing it on Twitter, the Tesla Roadster in 2021 will pass through the Nürburgring. By its one word, it can be inferred that the Californian company sees Green Hell as the perfect setting to test the development of its electric car.
What is the mission of this bolide going to such a demanding track?
At a time when Tesla already knows which lines to sew on, what is the reason for taking the bolide to a track as demanding as the German one? The truth is that, since its introduction, we have barely had new data on the Roadster, since Tesla has prioritized other projects like the Tesla CyberTruck.
Thus, and in keeping with the truth, it will not be known whether these announced performances will be seen and achieved at the Nürburgring. According to what Tesla boasted three years ago, the machine accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h needs only 1.9 seconds. In addition, the flag also has a range of more than 1000 kilometers and a maximum speed above 400 km / h.
This electric car comes spiced with an aerodynamic design, a very low center of gravity and the ‘SpaceX package’ which includes cold air thrusters to improve the performance of the Tesla Roadster. Attributes that can make you think of a possible quick lap to prove to your rivals than you can in a scenario like the Nürburgring.
Tesla Model S Plaid at Nürburgring
It would not be the first time that Tesla would face the challenge of taking on Green Hell's coveted fastest lap. A year ago he traveled to Germany with some prototypes of the Tesla Model S Plaid, a sports variant equipped with three engines. The goal was to snatch that Porsche Taycan record and the truth is that California units seemed to be very fast, but Tesla never published official times.
Although some witnesses said that the Tesla Model S Plaid managed to beat Porsche in 19 seconds, the truth is that the times were not known and some say that the reason for this is to reveal the feat at the 'Tesla Battery Day' event or when the Tesla Model S Plaid presentation takes place, probably before the end of 2020.
