"it's vomit-inducing!"

Last month, for his 78th birthday, I took my dad to the Tesla Motors in Tyson's Corner (Tyco Road), Virginia for a test drive of the Model S (P85D with Ludicrous Mode). We spent a good, long time inside the store -- maybe 90 minutes? -- learning about the technology, the fuel savings, etc. A lot of the presentation occurred inside one of the Model S'. Finally, it was decision time. Dad decided to sit in the passenger seat while I did the test drive.

Took it out for a spin, making sure Ludicrous Mode was selected. Then, with the Sale Advisor's blessing, came the time to punch it.

WOOSH!

This being my first test drive, I didn't launch it all the way to 60, but we got up to 55. Did that two or three times.

A few minutes later, Dad said, "You better pull over. I'm gonna woof." I pulled over, and he tossed cookies. Fortunately, he was able to lean out the door sill to barf outside. Then, regarding Ludicrous Mode, he gave his three-word review: "IT'S VOMIT-INDUCING!!!"

He now wants a Model S. But without the L.

KC service center has one.

I've heard that there is at least one other at another west coast service center.

The reason why I asked for clarification, was I was trying to determine if there were in fact three such cars.

So the KC SC has a P85D Ludicrous - that's very interesting. Is there a thread that I missed on this? Has anyone driven it? Do we have any numbers coming from it, etc.?

No threads, and no numbers. I only heard about the one because I was on another forum and someone mentioned that they had test driven it.
