A couple of weekends ago, there was a Green Energy Ohio symposium down in Columbus, and another event on the Friday evening of that weekend with a whole bunch of exotics coming out.
Kevan's friend Scott is the owner of a Tesla Model S *and* a Roadster, AND a Lambo Aventador. He wanted his Roadster to be at one of the Green Energy events, but wanted his Model S and his Aventador to be at the exotic car event (at a high-end jewellery shop), so he needed another driver. (First world problems...)
Knowing i'm a Tesla fan and a huge nerd, Kev invited me down and Scott tossed me the key. Leon was my co-pilot.
Here's a video of the event we were at. You can see me and Leon with stupid grins on our faces at about the 2:00 mark:

The Tesla Model S is absolutely fucking incredible. It's a big car... you can optionally get a rear-facing jump seat under the hatch, so it seats 7. But the centre of gravity is so low with all the batteries under the floor that it handles really well. And holy shit does it ever go!
If you have the means, i highly recommend it. It's so choice.
Holy for fuck sakes so much speed.
