Without any clear date on about when Tesla Roadster will make its debut on the market, the designers have taken on themselves to improve the Roadster’s formula. The rocket boosters in the Roadster were bound to be central to the designs of their team, though we didn’t anticipate designs that would have the rockets become the main focus of the vehicle.
Max Schneider is a young automotive designer who is currently resident in Japan and has come up with what is believed been described as one of the most non-Tesla fan-driven projects to ever wear the badge. Although it doesn’t appear particularly Tesla-like initially when you view Max’s YouTube video on the design of Tesla SpaceX Model R hypercar it begins to seem more logical. It’s a very top-quality design.
The final design is attractive and functional and has the sole goal to make the car go faster. It even has downward-facing boosters to propel the car towards the ground and are also able to swivel to help the car move upwards and downwards, meaning they can also assist in stopping. There are many interesting features in the design, which provide depth to the concept and further prove that it was written by an expert.
In terms of the specs that are planned for this rocket-powered electric hypercar, Max says it would be able to produce 2,600 horsepower and the top speed would be 467 km/h. It would weigh about 2.2 tons. One of the reasons for the heavy weight is the fact that the vehicle will need to transport the propellant in liquid hydrogen required to power the rockets.
The electric drive’s power is sourced from the battery pack of 115 kWh, which will give the car an estimated range of 510 kilometers (317 miles) in one charge however, without the rocket booster feature. The car must also be able to handle corners as the individual boosters for each of the all four wheels of the vehicle will be a major factor when turning into.
