Not to be confused with the Tesla Model 3 or Tesla Cybertruck.


Overview

The Roadster (also called by its full name of Tesla Roadster) is an electric hypercar in Jailbreak. It was released on December 6th, 2019, as part of the 2019 Winter Update.

The Roadster is a two-seater car that is located at the Badimo charging station near the Bank beside the river, located 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 due to its unique attributes and high performance.

Performance

The Roadster is widely known as one of Jailbreak's fastest electric hypercars. It is known to have the best acceleration and its launch speed beats anything else in the game, and the acceleration to top speed takes only six seconds, which is only behind the Chiron. The Roadster is the quickest car in short to mid-range distances due to its acceleration speed, which puts it ahead of every hypercar, regardless of top speed. Its brakes and handling are among the best in the game, making the Roadster the only hypercar to have excellent handling and brakes.

Unfortunately, it includes a poorly reverse-speed, as it can be defeated by Ferrari, R8, and other supercars.

One of the fastest land vehicles, placing 7th best overall. Comparable to Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Surus. Amongst the worst reverse speeds in-game, only comparable to Model 3, Cybertruck, Volt, and many other vehicles.

A complete mismatch to every vehicle, comparable to Jet Ski, and Dune Buggy. Just like launch, it has a very fast acceleration, taking around 6 seconds to reach top speed, comparable to the Chiron.

Fairly easy to handle, comparable to McLaren, R8 and Ferrari. One of the worst ground clearances, comparable to Ferrari, and Model 3.

One of the, if not the best brakes in game, comparable to the Model 3, and Cybertruck.

Pros and cons

Pros Cons
Among the fastest in the game in terms of acceleration and travel time. Expensive.
Incredibly high acceleration makes it great for escaping enemies. Among the slowest at reverse speed.
Excellent handling at any speed; better than the Torpedo's handling. Not very stable when driving off-road, tending to flip over and crash after going over slight bumps.
Conveniently located near the Bank. It can fling and bounce on lower-end devices, but the Ocean Update made the glitch appear less. This can be avoided by drifting.
The silent motor makes it easy to drive stealthily and undetected.

Trivia

  • This vehicle is based on the Tesla Roadster 2.0.
  • In its real-life counterpart, The Roadster had 4 seats, but in the game, there are only 2 seats.
    • The real-life Tesla Roadster has a removable top, while the Jailbreak rendition has a fixed roof.
      • On release, the Roadster's roof was non-collidable, implying that the Roadster might have a toggleable convertible roof like the Jeep. This was actually a glitch and was patched in the February 2020 Update.
  • The Roadster is one of three Tesla-brand vehicles in the game, with the others being the Model3 and the Cybertruck.
  • The body and window colors of the car are somewhat reflective. The only other vehicles with this trait are the Volt Bike (body only), the Ambulance (windows only), and the Cybertruck (windows only).
  • This was one of the most requested vehicles in the Jailbreak community, also being also one of the oldest, with suggestions dating back to the early days of the game, back specifically in late 2017 when the Roadster was first revealed by Tesla.
  • Due to being an electric vehicle, the Roadster along with the Cybertruck and Model 3 have single-gear transmissions.
  • This is the third electric vehicle to be added into Jailbreak and is also the fastest electric vehicle in-game.
  • The Roadster's price, when researched upon, costs $200,000, 1/3 of its in-game price.
    • This was most likely done for balancing reasons since the real Roadster claims to be able to rival speeds of the Bugatti Veyron and Chiron with a 1.9 second 0-60 mph time, and for $200,000, it beats everything else in that price range.
  • When equipping gradient-color textures (such as Scorch and Frost), the texture is reversed.
    • The Mustang and former Ferrari (before it was revamped and buffed) have a similar effect of equipping textures upside down.
    • The Monster Truck and the Challenger also have the textures reversed.
  • There is a bug in which that the Roadster can fling out of the map. This is shared with the other Tesla vehicles, the Model3 and Cybertruck, and the Surus.
  • 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 feature is shared with the Model 3 and the Cybertruck, probably due to balancing issues.
  • This is currently the 7th fastest vehicle and the 5th fastest vehicle on sale, coming slightly behind Surus, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Chiron but far behind the Bugatti and Torpedo.
