Tesla unveils Roadster Final Edition limited to 15 units

Article by Christian A., on December 21, 2011

For sale in the U.S. is the last Roadster from Tesla to ever be produced. This production vehicle – the first ever from Tesla – was launched four years ago and has had 2,600 units built. To mark its passing, Tesla developed a limited edition Roadster. The last Roadster has Atomic Red paint, two dark silver stripes on its hood and rear clamshell, and a set of exclusive anthracite aluminum wheels.

This is actually the fourth of the five Final Editions intended for North America. It was supposed to be delivered towards the north boarder but as the Canadian buyer realized the high price of importation, it is now offered for sale in the U.S.

Five Roadsters will be offered for each of Tesla’s sales region in North America, Europe and Asia. All the five Roadsters will have the same additional features as the first one.

There are no performance changes. Only 15 units will be built so it’s expected to do well at the 2035 Barrett-Jackson auctions.

The Goodwood Festival is the world’s biggest weekend event that gathers cars, celebrities and who’s who in the motorsports arena. This automotive festival is held in the sprawling landscape of the Goodwood Country House in England.

Aside from its long history in motoring events, Tesla’s VP for European Operations Cristiano Carlutti commented on how the Goodwood Festival also showcases what English summer is to the entire world. And for that reason, he thinks they have made the perfect choice of event to showcase Tesla’s newest Roadster to the public.

And so it went, the recently held 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed has shown us the new Tesla Roadster 2.5. As expected, this next generation sports car comes with Tesla’s improved design and technology. For one, the new Roadster now boasts of a very quiet interior cabin. Clearly, the latest sound reduction techniques have allowed them to achieve this.

Speaking of fresh new innovations, Tesla’s new Roadster is now presented with the optionally available navigation system (w/touch screen and back-up camera). Otherwise, its newly enhanced features consist of improved sound dampening technology, better seat comfort, new rear diffusers plus a redesigned fascia at the front end. True enough, Tesla has once again done a great job in stealing the spotlight.
