The Cincinnati Section had an amazing time at Tesla. Twenty-seven members joined us for a close look at some of these amazing autos. We were given a walk around of the new Model X, and current Model S. We went through their service area, which is really small because there are not that many components in these cars. 

After we saw everything outside these vehicles, and how the options worked, every member was able to test drive a Tesla. This is where the fun stated. Each individual was able to experience "Ludacris Mode" which launches the car from 0-60 in 2.8 Seconds. This feature alone was a selling point for members, as this speed is faster than any supercar in the world. Each member also got to experience "autopilot" on the highway. This was a strange feeling just letting the car take control, but an amazing feat of technology to experience on a uncrowded highway. 

While we in Cincinnati all love our Mercedes-Benz, these Tesla’s are also amazing vehicles, which have some incredible features that honestly make driving fun!

The lucky one of us, David Castle, was the winner of the 24-hour test drive of a Model S.  He gets to come to the showroom and pick up a Model S and can keep the car for 24 hours.

We all left the Event with a huge smile on our faces.  We really got to Fly a Tesla! WOW!
