It features a hand-wound stator and increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque.

In addition to Yokohama’s Ultra High Performance tires, the Roadster Sport has improved suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars that will be tuned to the driver’s preference.

The Roadster Sport starts at $128,500 in the US and €112,000 (excluding VAT) in Europe. Deliveries will begin in late June.
