Tesla Model S has a hidden James Bond mode

With a nod to Jules Verne

It’s not enough that Tesla’s Model S is the world’s best car, two years running — it’s also the coolest. A newly discovered easter egg lets you turn your e-car into a Lotus Esprit S1 submersible. Hold the "T" logo, enter "007" into the login, and then adjust your suspension to a depth of 20,000 leagues under the sea.

Tesla 007 easter egg

Musk, as you’ll recall, purchased James Bond’s transformable submarine car featured in The Spy Who Loved Me with a bid of $866,000 back in 2013.

Of course, the setting won’t do anything but evoke gasps of delight from owners and passengers, alike. But really, isn’t that worth it?
