The Roadster is a two-seater car that is located at the Badimo charging station near the Bank beside the river, spawning next to the Model 3. The vehicle costs 600,000 in-game cash, which places it in the middle of the hypercar price range. When driving, the Roadster uses the electric motor noise, which is a quiet, high-pitched whine, just like the Model 3, Cybertruck, Volt, and Volt 4X4.
To keep in line with the movement to give all vehicles in Jailbreak an interior, the Roadster gained an interior in the Dogs Update of February 2021. Its exterior model remained unchanged, while the interior was completely revamped.
The Roadster is well known for having its fast launch and acceleration. It’s launch speed beats nearly everything else in the game except for the Volt, and the acceleration to top speed takes about 6-7 seconds, one of the shortest acceleration times for vehicles in the entire game. The Roadster is the quickest car in short to mid-range distances due to its launch speed and acceleration, which puts it ahead of every hypercar, regardless of top speed. It’s brakes and handling are among the best, making the Roadster a great hypercar in many practical cases.
However, contrary to popular belief, the Roadster is the slowest hypercar in the game in terms of top speed, along with being slower than some supercars, such as La Matador and Stallion. It also has a poor reverse speed due to being an electric vehicle, just like the Model 3 and Cybertruck.
Overall, the Roadster is a great vehicle to buy, and is widely known as an excellent alternative to the Eclaire for inexperienced drivers due to its amazing handling.
|Tenth-fastest in the game, placing above low-tier supercars such as the Megalodon, JB8, and Beam Hybrid, but falling behind the Banana Car, all other supercars, and all other hypercars. It is about equal to the Volt and the Volt 4X4.||Among the worst in the game, and the slowest of any supercar or hypercar. It only manages to beat the Model 3, Cybertruck, Volt, Mighty, and Classic.|
|Faster than every vehicle in the game except the Volt. Useful for getaways and short-haul drivings. Its closest competitors are the Dune Buggy and Jet Ski.||Acceleration to top speed takes only 6-7 seconds, it does lose to a few vehicles such as the Dune Buggy, Volt and Jetski|
|Handling is really smooth regardless of speed and can be easy when making sharp turns, however the driver should be careful not to bump into things.||Ground clearance is the worst in the game, reducing off-road and highway capabilities. Driving at high speeds on railroad crossings or sloping roads usually hits the bottom of the car and flings it. In addition, off-road driving is very unstable and often leads to loss of control. However, the Roadster has strong launch and acceleration, so it can rush up some hillsides with ease.|
|Best braking ability in the game, coming to a full stop almost instantly. The only cars that come remotely close are the Megalodon and Airtail, each taking roughly half a second. It is tied with the ATV, Model 3, and Cybertruck.|

- This vehicle is based on the Tesla Roadster 2.0.
- In it’s real-life counterpart, The Roadster had 4 seats, but in the game, there are only 2 seats.
- The real-life Tesla Roadster is also a convertible whereas the Jailbreak version is not.
- The body and window colors of the car are somewhat reflective. The only other vehicles with this trait are the Volt (body only), the Ambulance (windows only), and the Cybertruck (windows only).
- As of the Season 2: Out Of This World update, the Roadster does not have reflective windows, as it uses glass because of its interior addition.
- This was one of the most requested vehicles in the Jailbreak community, also being one of the oldest, with suggestions dating back to the early days of the game, in late 2017.
- The real-life Roadster's price, when researched upon, costs $200,000, 1/3 of it’s in-game price.
- When equipping gradient-color textures (such as Scorch and Frost), the texture is reversed.
- This was the last vehicle to be added in 2019.
- Even though it runs on electric motors, which are capable of rotating backward at the same speed as forwards, the Roadster has a bad reverse speed. This trait is shared with the Model 3 and Cybertruck.
- This is one of seven vehicles that did not get a full model overhaul when it received an interior, the others being the Cybertruck, Camaro, Celestial, SWAT Van, Pickup, and the Helicopter.
- When equipping a spoiler on the Roadster, the spoiler appears narrower than its regular width. This trait is shared with the R8.
- This is one of the three only land vehicles with a different steering wheel design. This feature is shared with the Cybertruck and the Volt 4X4
- The Roadster is one of three Tesla-brand vehicles in the game, with the others being the Model 3 and the Cybertruck.
- This is the third electric vehicle to be added into Jailbreak.
- Due to this being an electric vehicle, the Roadster along with the Cybertruck and Model 3 have single-gear transmissions.
- This information has been compiled manually. Not all updates, patches, or hidden updates may be included.
