That would be an incredible time, but it doesn’t seem so far fetched when you consider the quickness of Tesla’s current Model S; earlier this year Motor Trend clocked a P100D to 60 mph in just 2.28 seconds and said the car was the first production model it’s tested that’s cracked 2.3 seconds.
There’s another car with claimed acceleration as quick as the P100D: the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Other than similar zero-to-60 times, the two cars couldn’t be more different, but was Musk’s tweet an attempt to undercut the Demon’s performance before it even hits the road (or drag strip)? Whatever the case, a drag race between the new Roadster and Demon is something we’d all want to see. YouTube, please oblige at your earliest convenience.
