WATCH: A Self-Driving Car in Action

This isn’t real, right? This must be a sneaky trailer for an upcoming science fiction film, right?

As far as we can tell, this footage is 100% real. We’ve heard talk of self-driving cars being developed, but it feels like a whole new kind of surreal to see one in action. This video shows latest Tesla Model S in action.

Not only does the new Tesla hold the record for going from 0 to 60 MPH in only 3.2 seconds; it’s also a lean, mean, self-driving machine. The driver in this video, courtesy of SlashGear, demonstrates the new vehicle’s new self-driving function. The car itself knows how to stay in the lines, observe speed limits, and even change lanes on command of your turn signal.
