You Can Now Build Your Own Tesla Cybertruck

Offbeat / Comments

This one might not be as amphibious as the real deal, though.

The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most talked-about upcoming vehicles in the world, and people can't seem to get enough of its angular stainless steel shape. Unfortunately, Tesla employees will be the first to get their hands on the new Tesla trucks, so the ordinary man and woman in the street will have to wait for an official launch date, but for now, people have resorted to stripping the Ford F-150 Raptor to build impressive fake versions. In a recent YouTube video posted by Liberman, viewers are taught how to build a Tesla Cybertruck of their very own, but instead of using stainless steel, he uses cardboard.

The instructional video shows viewers how to cut and stick together the near-symmetrical shapes that give the Cybertruck its famous body shape. Other than cardboard, the mini Cybertruck also makes use of basic household items such as toothpicks. Two electric motors power the rear axle, and a miniature rack and pinion steering system guide the front wheels. A battery pack and control module lie where the actual car's seats and instrument cluster would go. The finished product might not look as sharp as the actual car, but for a cardboard cutout, it is pretty impressive.

Once the car is finished, it is taken to the great outdoors for some testing, where it proves to be highly capable thanks to its strong electric motors, and of course, its super light weight. Those cardboard paddle tires also seem to help by digging into the dirt. In the video, the Cybertruck is seen with a mini four wheeler loaded onto the back. The little cardboard off-roader then tackles some serious axle twisters and loose sand. This little radio-controlled truck has us convinced, but it is doubtful whether it will be able to stand up to even the easiest of river crossings.
