Fresh off a successful IPO launch, Telsa has announced plans to introduce the updated Roadster 2.5 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

In terms of styling, the Roadster features a new front fascia, restyled wheels (available in silver or black) and a modified rear diffuser. Inside, the cabin has improved sound dampening, better seats, and an optional 7-inch navigation system with a back-up camera.

According to Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, "These improvements are a direct result of customer feedback and come only a year after release of Roadster 2.0, showing an exceptionally rapid pace of innovation. Where feasible, we will also offer existing customers the ability to purchase the upgrades now available in version 2.5."

So why unveil the 2.5 at Goodwood? The United Kingdom offers a 100 percent Writing Down Allowance, which allows companies to "deduct the price of the car from their taxable profits." Other benefits include free parking (in certain parts of London) and an exemption from the Showroom Tax.
