Tesla is wrapping up their Lotus-based Roadster in 2011 and making way for their new Roadster - completely Tesla from the ground up - in 2014. But before that happens, Tesla will be reeling in the last bit of cash on their current model with one last Final Edition, limited to five models. These units will only be sold on the North American market, but Tesla has promised that similar editions will also be offered for the European and Asian markets, making room for 15 final units in this current model’s future.

The Tesla Roadster Final Edition is finished in a special Sporting Atomic Red paint and then combined with a duo of dark silver stripes on its hood and rear clamshell. The look is finished off with an exclusive set of anthracite aluminum wheels.

However, the exterior changes are the only changes that will be made to the model. Expect to find the same electric motor under the hood; a 3-phase, 4-pole induction motor producing a maximum net power of 248 HP. The car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and can travel more than 200 miles per charge.

I love the final look of this Roadster. It is very amazing, spexing when you look on its body paint. I’ve never seen much cars in this color, that’s why I am impressed. That 15 units will be sold in just a couple of minutes. smiley

It looks cool on its graphics even on its body paint. However, I’m a little curious if what will be its interior look like? Well, I hope that it is impressive as well.

248 horsepower is definitely not good enough for this Tesla vehicle! Well, the fact that this would be their last edition, I think they should use more boost and powerful engine than to the standard barrel that they are using.
