Is there anything that hasn’t been said about the Tesla Cybertruck? Probably not, given that deliveries started in 2023, a few years after the electric pickup was unveiled in concept form.
Nevertheless, despite knowing everything about it, this model keeps making headlines for different reasons, from the occasional POV drive and a hands-on review to a tug-of-war game or an aftermarket touch.

Our latest encounter with this bulletproof machine that appears to have come from a dystopian future sends a digital whiff, as it only exists in the virtual realm. Shared by 412donklife a couple of days ago, these renderings are part of a short video that put the hypothetical spotlight on the car's modifications.

Though minimal, the upgrades are flashy, as they eschew the usual silver look and OEM wheels with aerodynamic caps and special tires, adopting a bolder styling inspired by the donk trend. Mind you, as every gearhead and their pet knows, no ride is a donk unless they are a 1971-1976 Chevrolet Caprice or Impala with the typical mods.

That said, let's proceed with talking about the digital tuning job this particular Tesla Cybertruck has received, starting with the virtual wrap, which the pixel manipulator calls Mocha. This was applied to all body panels, and it is an interesting way to make it stand out more.

The most significant add-on is the new wheelset. We don't know how much they measure in diameter, but the alloys seem to be around 30 inches or so. They were shod in rubber band tires to fit under the arches without any digital chopping, which would seriously affect the comfort. For a blingy touch, they sport 24-karat gold on the lips and numerous spokes.

Taken separately, these modifications would turn most rides into kitschy projects. However, for some reason, they come out just nicely on the Tesla Cybertruck, and we reckon someone needs to do something similar to their electric pickup for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, as a twin ride would immediately become the focus of the camera lens, especially during a large automotive event.

Before wrapping it up, we will remind you that the so-called Cyberbeast, which is the range-topping version of the Cybertruck series, has a 320-mile (515 km) range, or 440+ miles (708+ km) with the optional range extender. It takes 2.6 seconds to reach 60 mph (97 kph), taps out at 130 mph (210 kph), and can two 11,000 pounds (4,990 kg).

The mid-spec drops the sprint time to 4.1 seconds and the top speed to 112 mph (180 kph) and has a 470+ miles (756+ km) range with the range extender or 340 miles (547 km) without it. The base version can travel 250 miles (402 km) between charges and has a towing capacity of 7,500 lbs (3,402 kg).
