New Roadster vs Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

New Roadster vs Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

the new Tesla Roadster appear to be the most amazing vehicle ever to be made. But there is little information out on it. I have been fascinated with the Bugatti Veyron, is I think currently the fastest vehicle in the world at a cost of around $4-5 million. Massive torque is amazing. but the new Roadster is faster. the Veyron is quite radical with the tire and wheel design. The tires cost $40k to replace and you can only replace them 2 times, then you have to replace the wheels for another $70K.The tires are literally bonded to the wheels. so how will the new roadster be able to deal with the tire to wheel torque?

The Veyron use a unique Michelin. BUGATTI
BUGATTI VEYRON 16.4
VEYRON 16.4 GRAND SPORT 8.0 W16 1001
2009 - 2013
265 / 680 R500 99 ZR(Y)
365 / 710 R540 108 ZR(Y)

The Tesla roadster will use The tires on the prototype are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 325/30ZR21 (104Y) rear and 295/35ZR20 front. These have a “Y” speed rating, which means they have a maximum speed of “over 186mph (300kmph).” They are the same tires used on the Porsche 918 Spyder (which has a 211mph/340kmph top speed).

The new roadster seems to be capable of going very fast. Are tre the rims and tires specially bonded to prevent separation at that speed (250 mph)?

Does the roadster requr any special maintenance in order to maintain the ability go that fast?

Zoran, have not been able to find any info other than the tire size and tire brand. But for the Bugatti, lots of info out there on it.
