• A rare and desirable electric vehicle, based on the Lotus Elise chassis, and with fantastic performance.
  • It is powered by a three-phase, four-pole induction electric motor, producing 223kW (299bhp) and 295lb-ft of torque, coupled with the single-speed BorgWarner fixed gear transmission.
  • The Roadster was the first road-legal production EV to use lithium-ion battery cells in its 53kWh battery pack, and had a claimed range of 393km.
  • It can accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds, and will reach a top speed of 125mph.
  • The car has been very well-maintained and needs nothing to drive and enjoy immediately.


  • The Roadster 2.5 features OE Bilstein shock absorbers, new diffusers, directional forged wheels and revised sound insulation over the previous model, while the cabin boasts improved heated seats, cruise control and the optional 7-inch touch screen with Bluetooth connectivity and a reversing camera.
  • The front and rear ends feature a carbon-effect wrap.
  • It currently rides on a set of Bridgestone Blizzak winter tyres, though a set of OE Yokohama summer tyres will be included.
  • This example has been fitted with a set of Carbotech brake pads.
  • The original charging cables and an aftermarket Type 2 charging adapter will be supplied, along with two remote fobs and two keys.
  • It also comes with its original owner’s manuals and some recent maintenance invoices.


  • No known bodywork damage.
  • The PPF-protected Fusion Red paintwork is in good condition, though some minor stone chips can be seen on the front and rear ends.
  • One small scuff has been reported to the rear boot lid, though the vendor notes it is only visible under direct light.
  • The black leather upholstery is in great shape, with the exception of two small scuffs to the passenger seat and some minor wear to the piping around the driver’s bolster.
  • One small indent can be seen on the glovebox lid.
  • Some small scratches are visible on the heating vents, while some marks have been reported on the passenger-side soft-top roof support rod.
  • No electrical faults have been detected.


  • In April 2021, technicians at the Tesla Service Centre in Schlieren changed the front and rear brake lines, the rear track control arms and the windscreen washer pump.
  • Its last routine service was undertaken in December 2020 at 62,800 km, at the Tesla Service Centre in Schlieren, where the headlight heights were also adjusted.
  • Prior to this, similar routine servicing was undertaken in April 2018 at 51,377 km, where technicians also replaced the door sill protector screws.
  • In 2017, the Power Electronics Module insulation was replaced as a preventative measure by GS Technology. The PEM insulation is the one critical weak point in the Tesla Roadster, and while the PEM in this car was not defective, the insulation was replaced to mitigate future problems.
  • The air-conditioning compressor is beginning to leak, but this will be replaced by the vendor.


This Tesla Roadster 2.5 Sport is a rarely seen EV performance car, and the marque’s first offering as a car manufacturer. Based on the Lotus Elise chassis and fitted with a powerful electric motor, it offers a thrilling zero-emissions driving experience and would be a great addition to any collection.
