Astronomers believe this was their last chance to catch the car as it fades deeper into space.
Japanese carmaker Aspark has beaten Tesla‘s (and the Roadster) 0 to 60 miles per hour in under two seconds, thanks to its Owl electric supercar, reports New Atlas. The vehicle in turn traveled from 0 to 62 mph in 1.89 seconds. In comparison, Tesla’s Roadster achieved 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, albeit Aspark […]
Just two weeks after launching a Tesla Roadster into space, SpaceX gets back to business
It's now been a couple of weeks since Elon Musk and SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy into space. Its payload, a Tesla Roadster with the now-famous Starman behind the wheel, will orbit the Sun for millions of years according to SpaceX, and you can bet that astronomers will be taking every opportunity to spot it whenever they can.

How much does a couple of hundredths of a second cost? Somewhere in excess of US$4 million, it would seem, as this Japanese supercapacitor supercar fractionally out-accelerates an upcoming Tesla Roadster worth less than 1/20th the price... Continue...Show More Summary
Most of us won't be able to afford a Tesla Roadster 2.0 at $200,000 and can only dream about doing 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds. Nor will we get a chance to own an Aspark Owl EV. And just what exactly is an Aspark Owl

An astrophotographer in California has captured images of Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster on its journey around our sun. In the early morning of February 9th, Rogelio Bernal Andreo captured images of the Roadster as it appeared just above the horizon. To get the images, Andreo made use of an impressive arsenal of technological tools.
After weather forced SpaceX to delay the launch multiple times, Elon Musk's aerospace company launched its massive Falcon Heavy rocket into space on February 6th. It was an incredible feat, and the world watched along as SpaceX streamed the event live from the ground in Cape Canaveral. Show More Summary

This is a video of an all-electric, 430 horsepower, 563 all-wheel lb-ft of torque, 1900 pound Aspark Owl hypercar hitting 0 - 60 MPH in 1.921 seconds (previously: the second generation Tesla Roadster doing the same thing). For reference, I don't even think my car can go 60MPH without exploding. Show More Summary
Last week, SpaceX used the first successful launch of their powerful new Falcon Heavy rocket to send CEO Elon Musk’s very own Tesla Roadster barreling towards Mars. At the time, the whole spectacle was complemented by a crash test dummy...Show More Summary
Elon Musk isn't the only person amused by a Tesla in space — scientists at the University of Toronto and Charles University have devoted their attention to figuring out just what might happen to the Roadster officially classified by NASA as a celestial object. Researchers think the space-traveling car could ultimately crash into Venus or Earth — but don't panic yet.[...]
During the historic launch of the Space X Falcon Heavy rocket, a Tesla Roadster was sent into the atmosphere to orbit the sun forever. With this in mind, Ben Pearson, founder of Old Ham Media, was inspired to create “Where is Starman“, a fascinating site that plots exactly where the Roadster and its occupant are...
