Tesla Sport

Autox friend brought this to the last autox event in bham. Yes someone let him borrow it ($125k) for a while, lucky huh. It sounds like a golf cart pulling up, you only hear the tire noise. It is such a weird experience to not hear an engine running. Car has instant and endless torque, it was amazing.
295 lb-ft at 0-5,100 rpm (that means idle )
299 hp (223 kW) at 4,400-6,000 rpm
Revs to 14,000 rpm
Top speed: 125 mph and 0-60 in 3.7"
Weighing in at 2,723lbs
Only comments he had on the car were "Christ it's fast, I'm used to the miata and using all the power all the time and now it feels like i'm in an Evo where i have to be aware of the brake pedal a lot and can't use all of the power the thing has. Other than that, it understeers some."

That's an awesome car. I'd love to catch a ride in one sometime.

It was just so different. The only thing you hear is the tires rolling on the pavement and gravel lol i know i've said that, but i'm just so accustomed to a loud exhaust, then 0 noise. He already had the passenger list full for every run so unfortunately i wasn't able to ride but it was fun to watch it fly around the course and not hear a sound! Amazing machine
