Is A Tesla Roadster Faster Than A Bugatti?

The new Tesla Roadster has a lower top speed than a Bugatti Chiron

but accelerates a lot quicker, and boasts significantly higher top range.

The Tesla Roadster can reach 62 MPH in just 4.2 seconds, again another record-setting feat

whereas the Chiron is just under a second back at 5 seconds.

The Tesla Roadster can reach 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, an incredible pace

whereas most Bugatti models need 2.3 seconds to achieve the same speeds.

Even the current Tesla Model S, at its highest level of Performance trim, boasts a 2.4-second zero-to-60-mph time.

While the Teslas first mass-produced vehicle has a lower top speed than Chirons

the Roadster is accelerated far quicker, going 0-to-60-mph in 1.9 seconds.

The higher top speed would have allowed a Bugatti Chiron to have the edge over Teslas Model S plaid at all times

but with the shorter 1/4-mile race distance, we will need to see the actual race to be sure.
