Originally reserved AP, but switched to AT to gain the additional glass. Originally picked Black exterior with tahoe interior. After visiting Tyson's Corner this week changing from black to quantum gray to avoid finger prints etc from being prominent. Trying to see what the optional prices are to see how close a loaded AT would be to a base AGT. Any thoughts?

I originally reserved a Touring but upgraded to GT for the same reason you mention. Lucid won't give out option pricing until they're ready to confirm Tourings, but I figured the cost would be high for the glass canopy and Dream Drive Pro, which I want for the safety features. That, and I'm impatient and want the car ASAP.

... which I want for the safety features.
I'll go ahead and admit it. I switched from Touring to GT for 800 horsepower.
I thought about ticking the "call me if a Dream is left over" box but honestly 800hp is all you can really use on the street, and that only very cautiously.
I secretly hope Lucid uses that compact motor in a future small roadster. If only they knew somebody at Lotus who could design one.

Of, wait... ;)

Thanks for the thoughts. Debated between a 2022 Cadillac CT5-V, likely my last chance at a high performance gas engine and shifting to an EV. The range and luxury of the Lucid pushed me over the edge. Pictures of the pre-production car at Tyson's Corner.

The CT5-V would have totally turned the brand around if Cadillac had brought it out ten years ago. Today it feels so much like too little and far, far too late.

What's with the Air logos all over the stainless steel portion of the roof? Never seen that before; looks pretty horrible. Some weird wrap for the display car?

My current DD is a CT6 3.0 TT, and I was looking at either a low mile CT6 Blackwing or a CT5-V and then I thought why not reduce my cylinder count and go Plaid....That interior is a yoke in so many ways, I just couldn't do it, so I started researching Lucid and like you the range, luxury, and 800 HP put me on the reservation list.

I just hope the 800 horses doesn't ruin the experience of my 575 HP F-Type :unsure:

Glass roofs are the worst thing you can have in sunny on the hot sunny west coast. Just read the Tesla forums on glass roofs. Most regret it. Metal roofs will probably give better protection inna collisio.

Lucid states that their glass roof blocks heat and sunlight, and seeing I haven't seen anyone who has done a review of the car bitch about the heat and sunlight in the cockpit it appears that Lucid got it right.

I hope Lucid did but they have been shipping cars in late autumn and early winter. Unless the reviewers are from down under, we don't know how well the glass roof will work until the summer.
