Tesla Roadster Racer
Quote:
This year’s edition of the Race of Champions marked the debut of a racing incarnation of the Tesla Roadster. The vehicle entered our world at full throttle, being manhandled by Formula One champions Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost. The vehicle probably offered an interesting experience, as it was situated at the other end of the sound scale, compared to the other racers included in the event.

In order to be eligible for racing ,the vehicle was fitted with motorsport equipment aimed at increasing the level of safety. The car was gifted with elements such as a rollcage, special signalized tow elements and an electric circuit kill switch. The front passenger seat was removed, while the driver’s seat was replaced with a racing one that is built from carbon fiber. Of course, a motorsport harness is also included in the package.

No modifications were brought to the electric drive system, which means that the F1 drivers received the same performance offered by the street version of the car. To be more precise, the vehicle manages to deal with the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 3.8 seconds and offers a top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h).

"I’m lucky to have had a ride in the Tesla Roadster and I was really impressed. It’s silent but blindingly quick! I’m proud that The Race of Champions is leading the way in promoting green technologies in motorsport and it was fantastic to see – but not hear – such great drivers pushing the Tesla hard around this track," said Fredrik Johnsson, one of the founders of the Race Of Champions.

The company collaborated with digital artist, Laurence Gartel, who wrapped every body panel with this digital swirl design "to break ground in the automotive and art worlds".

The one-off Roadster, which was displayed and toured around Miami beach, accelerates from 0-60mph in just 3.7 seconds and has a range of over 200 miles.

Brabus Tesla
Quote:
Tuning company Brabus has teamed up with German electricity company RWE to create a ‘Green’ package for the Tesla Roadster.

The package includes a quick charging station for the owner’s garage and more than 18,500 miles worth of electric power, courtesy of RWE: this means that the Tesla Roadster can be fully charged in around six hours for an operating range of up to 220 miles.

Exterior features include carbonfibre splitter, spoiler, LED daytime running lights and 18-inch front and 19-inch rear Monoblock S alloy wheels. On the inside, the interior can be specified in a combination of perforated leather and Alcantara and even with a leather covered floor.

As with Brabus’s previous Tesla examples, the Roadster features sound synthesiser, which can replicate the grunt of a V8 engine, a race car or two futuristic soundscapes, according to the company.
