Tesla already owns the title of fastest-accelerating production car. And in 2020, the second edition of its $200,000+ Roadster will be even faster.

The video above is only 30 seconds long, but it gives enough of a glimpse into this wickedly fast car to have aficionados drooling. Plug in the claims of 0–100 mph in 4.2 seconds, a top speed beyond 250 mph, and a 621-mile estimated range, and this thing should be on the short list of most people looking for a $200,000 sports car.

Granted, that’s a pretty short list indeed. But we’re not immune to lusting after beautiful engineering. For those in a very different tax bracket, pony up quick. The 2020 Tesla Founder’s Series can be reserved now for just $5,000 down. Pay up the remaining $245,000 in 10 days. Ca-CHING!

For those who want to learn more, the nine-minute video below covers the entire Thursday unveiling.
