Tesla Easter Egg inspired by infamous Mario Kart level

Tesla is known for including fun little Easter Eggs in its software and the latest update is no different. Pushed out to Model S and Model X over the weekend, the new software (7.1.2.16.17) doesn’t appear to add any major improvements to the experience though it does recall a certain level from a certain Nintendo racer.

According to Elon Musk, when autopilot is activated 4 times in quick succession, a Rainbow Road-style level will pop up—and it’s exactly how it sounds. You can see how it looks in the video above.

The same Tweet from Musk said “more cowbell” will be coming soon but we have no clue as to what that could mean. Will the entire game of Mario Kart be playable through the instrument cluster? Is Tesla buying Nintendo?!
