DITCHING THE STAINLESS STEEL BODY FOR WOOD

 

since its unveiling in 2019, the tesla cybertruck has racked up a lot of interest with creatives around the world continuously dreaming up new iterations of the vehicle. with production pushed to 2022, the longing to have one has increased significantly among fans, inciting them to create their own version of the long-awaited truck. such is the case of the plybertruck, a cybertruck replica that ditches the car’s stainless steel body and replaces it with wood. 

 

the plybertruck by CJ cromwell was created to participate in the gambler 500 rally — a mostly off-road rally-style navigational adventure that features cheap, impractical or fun vehicles that run through the country and pick up trash, remove abandoned vehicles and boats. participants are encouraged to spend no more than US$500 on their vehicle but the limit is not enforced.

THERE’S ANOTHER CAR UNDER THE PLYBERTRUCK’S EXOSKELETON

 

under the plybertruck’s wooden body there’s a first-generation acura MDX, as reported by carscoops. ‘so while it’s obviously not electric like the real cybertruck, we have no doubt that it met the $500 purchase cost cap,’ they said.

 

elon musk has tweeted that the cybertruck design was partly influenced by the lotus esprit sportscar that doubled as a submarine in the 1970s james bond film the spy who loved me. the result is what looks like a low-poly blade runner fantasy.
