Iconic Cars Cybertrucked29 April 2020
Unveiled at the end of 2019, the Tesla Cybertruck still remains a serious talking point. Recognised for its sharp, futuristic body, Elon Musk’s all-electric pickup looks like nothing else on the market.
Reaching 250,000 pre-orders in just five days after its unveiling, we’re set to see the revolutionary CYBRTRCK (its trademarked name) on our roads by late 2021. While we wait, we decided to reimagine iconic cars in Musk’s unique style.
Check out five of our favourite cars below redesigned as Cybertrucks.
The classic Mini Cooper is a British favourite by anyone’s standards. While the style and shape has changed slightly over time, the Mini has kept its distinct design since the original 1959 car. Though, that has changed after we reimagined it designed by Tesla.
Our Cybertrucked Mini is the small, three-door Hatch we know and love, but it now comes with a sharper exterior. Its traditional rounded grille now has six edges and the curved headlights have been straightened out. Although, our Mini Cybertruck does keep the brand’s signature wings and the definitive Union Jack remains a key feature upfront.
While Tesla are yet to create a small hatchback, this Mini fits in with the ever-changing landscapes of urban cities, so it might just inspire them.
The iconic design that gave this car’s name the ‘Beetle’ has been revived multiple times over its lifespan and has been popular across generations of drivers. But after 80 years, Volkswagen recently announced that production of this classic car has now ended. As a tribute to the beloved bug, we gave it a Cybertruck twist.
What was once a cute and compact car, our Cybertrucked Volkswagen Beetle has lost its famously curved body. It is a direct contrast to the well-known, round exterior and the Beetle now looks more like a traditional coupe.
As a nod to the old design, we have kept the classic Beetle wheel rims. But one of the stand-out upgrades on our Cybertrucked VW is the futuristic, solar panel roof. Tesla’s Elon Musk once said that solar panels on cars were just a fantasy, but this might just change his mind.
The Jaguar F-Type has been praised for its radical new design, with revised styling and upgraded technology that is thought to appeal to a wider audience when compared to the last version. But our Cybertruck render takes this one step further, with its classic styling thrown out the window.
We have maintained the famous Jaguar grille, but other than that, our Cybertrucked version stands out against its British origins. Its new, unique shape is completely unexpected, so it would definitely stand out from the opposition.
The iconic Bugatti Veyron has been out for around 15 years, which is why we thought it deserved a fresh start. What was once the world’s fastest street-legal car gets a cyber revamp with our Cybertrucked version.
While we have maintained the hallmark side vents, it is still a far cry away from the usual, classic style of Bugatti models. The original design once helped this car reach its record-breaking top speed, but would the Bugatti Veyron Cybertruck be even faster?
Range Rover Evoque
Our Range Rover Evoque probably suits the Cybertruck revamp the most out of our new designs. We have retained the classic Range Rover styling, plus its upgraded look matches the refined architecture behind the original car.
While Tesla’s actual Cybertruck is said to prize toughness, with every component made with durability in mind, its off-road capabilities have been questioned. But by combining it with Range Rover’s handling and its all-weather characteristics, we think the Cybertrucked version would breeze through even the worst conditions.
