Tesla Model S has “007” mode, turns into submersible... kind of (video)

By ,

Did you know that you can transform your Tesla Model S into a Lotus Esprit S1 submersible like the one featured in the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me? We're talking about a virtual transformation, of course. 

As reported by The Verge, all you have to do is to press and hold the Tesla logo at the top of the main control display, then enter the “007” access code and voilà! You can even select the depth you want to go!

Where did the idea come from? Back in 2013, Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased the iconic Lotus Esprit S1 for $866,000. As if the Model S wasn't cool enough already, his team included this funny Easter egg in the car's infotainment system.
