Hot Wheels has introduced a remote controlled version of the Tesla Cybertruck that even gets the infamous cracked window

If you’re one of those quarter-million people who have made a $100 deposit on the Tesla Cybertruck, good luck getting your hands on one at least in the foreseeable future. Spending a few hundred dollar bills might actually get you one by the end of this year. Surprised? Well, Mattel has announced not one but two Hot Wheels-branded remote-controlled versions of Tesla’s Cybertruck. Available in two sizes, spending $20 will get you a 1:64 scale RC Cybertruck, while $400 buy you a much bigger 1:10 scale version of the electric pickup truck. Both the versions are available for pre-order on the company’s website and are expected to ship in December 2020.

Out of the two, we are more interested in the $400 option which truly looks cool. The official description on Mattel’s website describes the 1:10 scale version as a “hobby grade-radio-controlled vehicle that is off-road and rugged terrain capable.” The RC Cybertruck gets all-wheel drive like the real deal and even features Chill or Sport modes. The plastic body can be removed and it not only reveals the interior but also gives access to the internal battery and the drivetrain system. And guess what! You also get a reusable cracked window vinyl sticker to make it look like the one from the unveiling event. Additionally, it comes with functioning headlights and taillights, and a telescoping tailgate that slides out into a loading ramp for the bed. However, Mattel says both the scale versions are limited editions and the $400 option is already sold out at the time of writing. All you can get for yourself is the $20, 1:64 version; but that too might not last for too long. So better hurry!
