Elon Musk likes to play jokes and have fun and the Rainbow Road was released as an Easter Egg back in April of 2016.
What Is Rainbow Road?
The Rainbow Road displayed in the Tesla is visible while driving with Autopilot on and changes the road you are driving on into a multi-colored road.
It is inspired by the final level of any version of Mario Kart where the road turns into a Rainbow Road.
When you turn this feature on in your Tesla you will also get some music too. Specifically, the song (Don’t Fear) The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult.
However, don’t let Musk leave it there. He has actually included the iconic SNL version of the song, which became known as We Need More Cow Bell. And it seems Musk has a thing for comedy and SNL, as he also appeared on there himself in 2021.
How To Activate Rainbow Road
In order to activate Rainbow Road in your Tesla you have to do the following:
- Activate Autopilot
- Pull down on the right stalk four times rapidly
The Rainbow Road will now appear in place of the standard road you are driving on and the song will start to play!
How To Disable Rainbow Road
Disabling Rainbow Road is quite simple, just disable Autopilot.
