2010 Tesla Roadster 250 Signature Sport Edition
This Tesla Roadster Sport is No.196 of just 250 Limited Signature Sport Editions built and offers a host of desirable options together with increased performance and 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
As the first model produced by Tesla in 2008, the Roadster holds a special place in the history of the motor car.
The design brief was to build an exhilarating and driver-focused sports car with incredible performance and handling powered entirely by electricity.
Employing the skills of Lotus engineers for the body, chassis and handling characteristics, the Roadster allowed Elon Musk to follow his master plan and create the global presence Tesla now holds.
With 2,450 examples sold in over 30 countries, the Roadster can also claim title to having covered more miles than any other car – the one launched into orbit by Musk in 2018 is due to pass Mars in November this year.
With a total of just 48 UK RHD examples made, British production began in 2010 close to the Lotus headquarters in Hethel. This Tesla Roadster Sport is No.196 of the 250 Limited Signature Sport Editions produced.
With increased performance and capable of 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, this 2.5 Signature Sport Edition is finished in Lightning Green with black Alcantara and leather interior. Together with a host of exposed carbon fibre options the Sport features custom adjustable suspension together with adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars and lightweight forged aluminium wheels.
Having recently sold the very last UK Tesla Roadster built, I was amazed by the incredible performance and excitement the Roadster provides. As the first all-electric sports car, the Roadster has paved the way for an entirely new generation and is already being appreciated as the first ‘Classic Electric’. The importance of this accolade will undoubtedly increase in the future as this entirely new sector continues to gather in pace and popularity.
Maintained thoroughly by the current owner who has huge experience and continued involvement in the electric car world, no expense has been spared including new batteries being fitted in 2015.
This rare and Limited Edition Tesla Roadster Sport is in first class condition throughout and please contact me for further details.
