Tesla’s beautiful but long-delayed electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster, will come with the option of a SpaceX package that allows the vehicle to achieve 0 to 60 MPH acceleration in just 1.1 seconds. This has been confirmed by a plaque accompanying the Tesla Roadster prototype exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, which explained that the SpaceX package would add cold-air rocket thrusters to the rear of the car for enhanced performance. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently tweeted that the production version of the Tesla Roadster would look even better than the prototype.

When first unveiling the vehicle, Tesla claimed a list of insanely impressive specs for the new Roadster, including 0-60 mph in 1.9 sec, 620 miles of range, and more. However, the CEO quickly added that the insane specs announced in 2017 for the new electric hypercars are only “the base specs.” Musk later explained that Tesla plans to offer a “SpaceX package” with cold air thrusters around the vehicle to boost performance.
