Tesla cars will now provide a soundtrack for car thieves as a new security feature, Chief Executive Elon Musk announced in a tweet.
Owners can now elect to blast Bach’s Toccata and Fugue – the famed organ tune used in movies to illustrate horror and villainy – when the car’s sensors and cameras detect a potential break-in. Musk said the feature will also play “keep Summer safe”, a reference to a scene from the animated show Rick and Morty where a vehicle’s AI system kills to protect its occupant.

The musical alarm will be part of “Sentry Mode,” a security upgrade that Musk revealed in a tweet last week. While full details of the mode are slim, it’s expected to leverage the car’s cameras for 360 degree surveillance.
Musk said a “rough beta” would be released in 2 to 3 weeks.
