The Virgin Hotel is offering rides in a Tesla Model S

Starting today, Chicago's brand new Virgin Hotel will be offering guest car services to select areas in the city in an electric-powered Tesla Model S. 

Virgin is making a big run at sustainable energy in its new hotel line, with LED lighting investments, daylight sensor lighting and a green roof of live plantings. 

The model of the hotel's Tesla is not your average emission-free Smart Car—it is the quickest-accelerating four-door vehicle ever built. It has a gear called "Insane Mode" that can bring the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. 

The rates at the Virgin are a bit steep, but the opportunity to cruise around in one of the world's coolest cars might make a stay worth the price.
