A new simulation by CGI artist Slave Popovsky shows what a Tesla Roadster accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 1.1 seconds could look like — thanks to the addition of SpaceX thrusters, which Elon Musk has teased previously.

This is how fast 1.1 seconds 0 – 60mph take off should look like with Space X package thrusters on the Tesla Roadster. Computer worked out physics and then visualised in a render animation. Not sure how much gas but threw the effect in anyway. Enjoy @elonmusk#tesla#spacexpic.twitter.com/VzMukQPT2E

Tesla says its Roadster can accelerate to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, reach a top speed of  250 mph, and have a massive 620 mile range.

Shaving that down to 1.1 seconds, however, would make it far and away the fastest accelerating consumer car on the planet. The fastest production cars have only been inching closer to the two second mark in zero-to-60 mph acceleration over the past few years.
