Fresh off a deal with Mercedes-Benz, a deal with Toyota and a successful IPO launch, Tesla has announced plans to introduce the updated Roadster 2.5 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The 2011 Roadster now features a slightly-redone front end, restyled wheels available in silver or black and a modified rear diffuser. Inside, the cabin has better sound deadening, 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.”

The decision to unveil the 2.5 at Goodwood was due to the United Kingdom’s 100% 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.
