Announced in November, the Tesla Cybertruck drew attention for its futuristic four-dimensional design and therefore totally different from other conventional pickup truck models. The vehicle is not yet for sale, as it will only go into production in 2021. But, if you don't want to wait so long, you can buy a cheaper "version" of the vehicle in Russia. At least that's what youtubers from a channel known as Pushka’s Garage propose, who decided to create their own Cybertruck and sell it online for just $ 10,800.

Of course, the buddy buddy agrees with the absence of the technology employed in Elon Musk's car – such as the use of electricity and stainless steel – to be traded for between $ 39,900 and $ 69,900. That's because, in reality, the project alone cost only $ 1,300, including the car that underpinned the Cybertruck fake, a VAZ 2109, or Lada Samara of the 1980s.

As a result, the youtubers pair kept the vehicle's 1.6-liter gasoline tank and added thin metal plates on the outside, positioned to mimic the shape of the Tesla model.
The whole process of building the alternative Cybertruck can be seen at this video from YouTube, available only in Russian.
