Elon Musk is on fire these days, first landing a rocket on a floating barge in the middle of the ocean and now unveiling a Mario Kart easter egg for Tesla owners.


When Tesla’s Autopilot mode is activated within a Model S or Model X, similar to most GPS systems in cars, it shows your vehicle driving and its location on the dashboard screen.

However, instead of a normal road, Tesla added a wrinkle where your vehicle can cruise down Mario Kart’s famous Rainbow Road instead.

Honestly, as awesome as it looks, staring at the colorful Rainbow Road while in a vehicle in real life would probably give me a seizure so I’ll leave it to others to enjoy this unique easter egg.

Of course, it would help if I had a Tesla to try it out in the first place…
