The Tesla Roadster was ground-breaking upon its release, it was the first all-electric car to use lithium-ion battery cells allowing the Roadster a faster charge and an improved longevity when compared to its electric car competitors. It can travel more than 240 miles on a single charge, which at the time was a range unprecedented for any production electric car. The Roadster shot to fame when Elon Musk used his own personal Roadster as the dummy payload for the 2018 Falcon Heavy test flight launched by SpaceX with a mannequin in a spacesuit occupying the driver’s seat dubbed “Starman”, Elon’s Tesla Roadster became an artificial satellite of the Sun and is still circling the cosmos today! In March 2010 the Roadster also swept Monte Carlos alternative energy rally Driven by Formula One Veteran Erik Comas, becoming the first electric vehicle to ever win the three-day rally and dominate a certified Federation Internationale de l’Automobile competition.
Based on the Lotus Elise chassis, the 2010 Roadster Sport was the first derivative of Tesla’s proprietary, patented powertrain. Fitted with a lithium-ion battery it was perhaps the most advanced battery pack of any electric car on the market at the time. It’s 0-60mph acceleration was shaved from the standard model’s 3.9 seconds down to 3.7 seconds before onto a top speed of 125mph. It was also better looking than the standard model with the likes of a new front fascia with diffusing vents and rear diffuser, directional forged wheels becoming available in both silver and black, new seats with larger more supportive bolsters and a new lumbar support system, power control hardware that enables better performance in exceptionally hot climates and an optional 7” touchscreen display with back-up camera to name a few more.
Our UK supplied example was fitted with the following specification: exclusive leather premium seats with red accents, clear carbon fibre to dashboard, central display and side panels, inner door trim and rear panel plus roll bar hoop. Infotainment system that includes the 7” touchscreen, GPS navigation, single disc CD, 7-speaker sound system with sub-woofer, Bluetooth connectivity and HomeLink door opener, 10-way adjustable suspension, tyre monitoring system, carbon fibre to front trunk cover, carbon fibre lower front spoiler and rear spoiler, forged black alloy wheels, 2 charging cables, Tesla carpet mats and a Cobra nav track tracking system.
This particular car benefits from a maintenance service carried out by the official Tesla Service Centre, Gatwick in 2023 when the cars original factory HV battery pack was replaced, the fitment of TPMS sensors and a new 12V auxiliary battery.
It comes complete with the remainder of its replacement HV battery warranty (2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes soonest), its handbooks including the owners manual, quick reference guide, charging vehicle guide, assistance guide, warranty guide plus touch screen guide, soft top cover, tool roll and a dedicated history file.
