Tesla x Serato Announcement

Introducing the best sounding car ever.

In a game-changing collaboration, Tesla Motors and Serato have come together to bring you the world's first ever DJ-Drive system. No more cassettes, CDs, aux cords and broken Bluetooth interfaces. Just bangers mixed in the comfort of your car.

The release of the latest Tesla firmware update includes full Serato DJ Pro integration, free for all Tesla vehicles. This integration allows you to DJ literally anywhere you go. Your only restriction is your creativity.

As well as Serato DJ Pro utilising the fully functional Tesla touch-screen, drivers are now able to attach ergonomic Novation-slicers to the steering-wheel to trigger cue points, loops and flip tracks - full control on the go. Use Autopilot or switch to Scratch Live mode to DJ and drive at the same time.

Not stopping there, the engineers at Tesla and Serato have integrated Serato Video into the mix. Video file playback is controlled the same way as audio, so incorporating visual effects and transitions is super simple. Karaoke mode is built in, taking singing in the car to the next level.

You can now look forward to sitting in gridlock and perfectly mixing the latest Ibiza hits. Or cruising in comfort through picturesque landscapes while double dropping the heaviest, face-melting bangers in your arsenal.

Ludacris mode has had some upgrades too. You’ll need to turn it on to hear them...if you dare.

And as you guessed, this is April Fool's day annoucement.
