Tesla Motors unveiled its next-generation sports car, the Tesla Roadster 2.5, to the public this weekend at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The Tesla Roadster 2.5 features improvements in design and technology, including a new front fascia, rear diffuser, improved seat comfort, sound dampening and an optional large touch screen navigation system with back-up camera. Improved interior sound reduction techniques, including new front fender liner material, make the cabin even quieter.
The Festival of Speed is the world's largest motoring garden party - a unique weekend that brings together a heady mix of cars, stars and motor sport 'royalty' to create the largest car culture festival worldwide. Held in the immaculate grounds of Goodwood House, this annual hill-climb extravaganza celebrates all things automotive.
'Goodwood is one of the most beloved motoring events in the world and a highlight of the English summer - so it's only appropriate that this iconic celebration will be the public launch of the latest Roadster,' said Cristiano Carlutti, Tesla's Vice President of European Operations.
