Green Tesla Roadster silently speeds up for $185,000

Dilemmas of escalating fuel prices as well as popularity of hybrid vehicles have lead to a demand for efficient eco cars that are at par with today’s gas guzzling vehicles. And Tesla Roadster has managed to prove that such green concept can work in real world scenarios too. Thankfully it also looks like a normal sports car and not like some strange cylindrical capsule or tear shaped pod. Powered with 185kw electric motor as well as a stack of batteries, this green speedy beast can zoom off from zero to 60 in just 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 125mph. Geared to charge within three hours it can run a range of 220 miles on each charge.

Virtually noiseless, you’ll need to double check to realize that its breathing when switched on. Boasting of fantastic acceleration, the lack of noise or gear changes makes it even more thrilling.
Sporting a not-so-pleasant tag of £92,000 ($185,000), about 1,100 have been ordered for US shores. While Europe will see about 250 of them early next year.
George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and Arnold Schwarzenegger are some of the celebs who will be seen behind this silent green speedy beast.
