Tesla Roadster

Now this is one gorgeous electric car. I've always been put off by electric cars because their design is just so blah. Most of them are compact and looks budget cars. This is not something I can say for the Tesla Roadster.

Yes, the Tesla Roadster is an electric car and no, it's not a concept car because it will roll out in the market starting next week. Before you reach for your check, be warned that this car will set you back $109,000 for the standard model and the fully loaded version will set you back $124,000.

The Tesla Roadster is equipped with a 6,831 cell lithium ion battery which weighs about 1,000 pounds. The battery can be fully charged at 3.5 hours and can go on a 225 mile journey on a single charge. The Tesla roadster can go from 0-60 mph in four seconds and can reach speeds of 125 mph.

Even if you have the dough to spend, it will take around 15 months before your order is delivered as the first 600 Tesla Roadsters for 2008 has all been sold. Orders are now being taken for 2009 models. If you don't have the dough to spend, then lets you and I just drool over the pics below.
