On Thursday night, Elon Musk "unveiled the 'D,'" a.k.a. Tesla's new "dual-motor" in its Model S sedan.
While the car isn't self-driving, it does have an "autopilot" setting, which allows the car to read speed limit signs, turn corners, and park itself without input from the driver. The autopilot mode uses radar technology to create a "protective cocoon" to shield the vehicle from road obstacles.
The Model S also has acceleration that's faster than most Lamborghini models — it can go from zero to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. Check out the Model S in action, including a pretty amazing demonstration of the autopilot mode, in the video below. --Meghan DeMaria
