Don't judge her. We'd all do the same thing.

A 70-year-old has shown some serious grit after being subjected to the Autopilot mode in Tesla's Model S   

Her reaction? Pretty darn good, we think.  

Here is the video, which was created by the team at CarBuzz

Having yours hands off the wheel probably feels like the most unnatural thing in the world. 

So, it's perfectly reasonable to scream "Oh dear Jesus" if you've never experienced Autopilot mode before. 

"This is so scary...this is my first day out and I'm about to die", she shouted.

The brave soul lasted for all of 45 seconds until her passenger reached out and switched the car back into manual.

Those watching the video on Facebook commented with support. 

One viewer, Scott Kelly said: "I shouldn't laugh at this, because Autopilot can be a little disconcerting the first time you try it and see the car actually drive itself in traffic."

Dixon Menchaca also explained: "Lol I would probably react the same way she did."

We agree.
