Elon Musk has made new comments about the new Tesla Roadster being equipped with SpaceX package consisting of cold air thrusters.

Musk is going to be on the next episode of Jay Leno’s garage.

In a teaser released by CNBC, Musk talks about the “SpaceX package" option that will be offered on Tesla’s new Roadster:

“It’st going to have an option to have rocket trusters from SpaceX."

Leno responded with a dismissive “alright" and added that he wasn’t sure if Musk was joking, but the latter assured him that he wasn’t “in this case."

"We are going use ultra high pressure compressed air – it’s a cold gas thruster. The main thruster will be like behind the license plate so for acceleration, it drops the license plate and behind the license plate is a rocket thruster."

“It’s like full-on James Bond."
