Default Went to the really really dark side…

Had both on order for quite awhile and ended up getting both in the last week and a half.
Lucid Air Dream # 414, 1111 hp…simply amazing.
Rivian R1T 835 hp

Have only had the Rivian for a day so not much to say yet.
The Lucid I’ve put a couple hundred miles on and just stepping on the go pedal makes me giggle. I have never driven anything that accelerates so smoothly and this thing is a rocket. What a amazing car for a first time manufacturer.

Congratulations Charley on your new toys. I know what you mean by the "Go" pedal, I just got my first ride in a Tesla Plaid edition in Drag mode, words can not explain the force it puts on your body on acceleration. Scary Fast!

Congrats Charlie!

I have been watching the Rivian for quite a while now, just not enough $$ in the bank for the switch, plus current driver only has 35K miles, too soon to let it go.

Wow, I’d like to see that in real life. I’m tempted.

Really well done video review that actually talks about both, but mostly describes why the Lucid is such a superhero landing for a new manufacturer.

The garage looks kind of empty, do you have your muscle cars in another building?

My son test drove a lucid from SF to LA. Toured the factory, met the CEO etc.. he was very impressed and this is a guy that gets to drive everything. I’m curious to see how they hold up in the long run.
