Description

The 2008 Tesla Roadster is a Hot Wheels casting based on the production car of the same name, debuting in the 2008 New Models. The Tesla Roadster is an all-electric sports car produced by the electric car firm Tesla Motors.

Since 2018-02-06 a Hot Wheels Roadster sits on the dashboard of the real model in space on orbital trajectory between the asteroid belt and Earth. It is part of a mass simulator for the first lauch of SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket and could be seen on live footage. This toy car therefore will travel more miles than any real one existing except the one it's attached to.
