    According to the billionaire, cars can speed up to 150mph during a ride inside the tunnel. However, guests at demo rides were testing the tunnel in a Tesla Model S at 40mph.

    Elon Musk has disclosed his latest innovation — an underground tunnel for automobiles that seeks to tackle traffic congestion in Los Angeles. 

    The new tunnel has been called the O'Leary Station by Musk's Boring Company, and it features a wall-less lift, which lowers the electric cars 30ft below the surface. 

    ​Describing the innovation, Musk said that it was 'a eureka moment,' and it was going to work  'damn well.'

    Initially, the tunnel was designed to be used by car drivers; however, Musk later made the project more ambitions and revealed that the tunnel would also be used for pedestrians and cyclists.
