TESLA ROADSTER COULD GET DIZZYING ACCELERATION WITH SPACEX ENGINE
Thanks to a SpaceX engine to be fitted to Tesla's next-generation car, the Roadster, the car is thought to be capable of going 0-100 in 1.1 seconds.
This account was based on information provided by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The knowledge that Tesla's next-generation car, the Roadster, will see the really, really fast 0-100, was not unknown. The base model of the car was known to go from 0 to 100 in 1.9 seconds. However, with the addition of SpaceX's cold gas engine, which will be hidden behind the plate at the rear of the vehicle, it is suggested that the Roadster can go up to 60 miles per hour in a dizzying 1.1 seconds.
His YouTube channel' Engineering Explained ' attempted to decide whether the Roadster could become one of the fastest cars in the world, using Isaac Newton's basic principles of physics. Using information provided by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the channel's host Jason Fenske said the car could reach an acceleration of about 1.44 G with an engine of about 2,000 kg and above.
A 2.5 g acceleration could be captured with the SpaceX engine
If the vehicle is fitted with cold gas engines via an optional SpaceX Package, it is calculated that the vehicle can have an acceleration of 2.5 G. This is also close to Elon Musk's prediction. When we apply the law of physics, where speed equals acceleration and time, Tesla's next-generation Roadster can go up to 60 miles per hour in 1.1 seconds with optional engines.
If Tesla is able to accelerate the Roadster in this way, it will be the fastest-accelerating mass-produced vehicle in the world. The vehicles currently at 60 miles per hour are the Ultima Evolution Coupé and the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Both vehicles go up to 60 miles per hour in 2.3 seconds. The Roadster will also pass the Japanese supercar, the Aspark Owl, should it reach that acceleration. The Aspark Owl allegedly went up to 60 miles per hour in 1.7 seconds.
Going up to 60 miles per hour in 1.1 seconds will be an unprecedented feat. It's also no secret that Elon Musk wants the world's fastest car. Musk had previously said in a statement that he and the Roadster would do things that would be unfair to other vehicles. Musk had suggested the Roadster would be 'overwhelmingly good' compared to the next generation of petrol sports cars.
