Mini Tesla Cybertruck tows massive two-tonne Ford F-150 in shocking tug of war – The Sun

A MINI Tesla Cybertruck has taken on a hulking two-tonne truck in a David versus Goliath battle.

But the result of the tug of war will surprise even the most passionate motoring enthusiasts.

YouTuber James Hobson built the 1:2 scale model to see if it could replicate the impressive feats of the Tesla Cybertruck.

His channel is dedicated to recreating fictional ideas from popular movies, video games and comic books.

While the Cybertruck hasn't been released yet, it made headlines earlier this year when Elon Musk revealed a incredible prototype.

The chief executive boasted the motor could beat a Porsche 911 in a drag race and out tow a Ford F-150 pick-up truck.

He even claimed it was bulletproof and could go 500 miles on a single charge.

So in a bid to test these bold statements, Hobson and his team built their very own model.

He said: "We spent the past month building our very own Cybertruck, with one major difference – we built it half-scale.

"To accomplish this it was no small task and it cost us a lot of time, blood, sweat and tears."

After loading up the car with concrete blocks, the engineers hook it up to a two-tonne Ford F-150 to see which car is capable of towing the most weight.

Despite being half the weight of the F-150, the half-scale Cybertruck quickly begins to drag its competitor through the garage.

Amazed by the result, Hobson jokes: "Half-scale Cybertruck, 50 per cent more torque than an F-150. Elon let us know when you’re calling."


It's not the first time a mini Cybertruck has shown up more expensive vehicles.

A dedicated father recently built his son his very own pint-sized version of the truck.

Amazing footage shows his son towing a Mercedes R-Class which has its handbrake off in an empty car park using the tiny motor.
